“Where Our Customers Send Their Friends”

My whole life has been one big mechanical experience. From prehistoric lawnmowers in the late ’50’s when I was 5 years old to chainsaws, anything automotive and mechanical sucked me in and totally put me under a spell. Having the best parents in the world helped a lot because they supported anything I did, except being a bully or being dishonest or a bigot. With that in mind I got my first car when I was 14 years old, I never drove it on the street since you needed to be 16 years old to get a drivers license.

The transmission was bad in my 1958 Ford Thunderbird (the car cost me $150.00) and being the inquisitive guy I am, to buy a transmission was not in my cards, I had to take it out and do the repairs myself. I removed the transmission, bought a manual and got the transmission fixed and working great, eventually. A lot of luck and work went into that job. It seems that every car I have owned, I broke the transmission in.Until my dad taught me the lesson of pay for it yourself if you are going to abuse your car. That was a quick cure.

I owned a 1956 Porsche 356C for a few years as a teenager and found out fast that rear engined cars don’t like to ‘holeshotted’ from a dig very much. In laymen terms that means put the gas pedal to the floor and let the clutch out from a dead stop, which causes the rear tires to spin. Bad news on a car with a rear engine. Too much weight over the rear wheels.

My entire adult life has consisted of being one of the most savvy and qualified transmission people in the country (self proclaimed). I got into the business as a remove and replacement person when I was about 19 years old, learned fast how to be a rebuilder and took over every rebuilding shop that I worked at. Usually making the old timers angy at me. I understand now, a 20 year old punk outbuilding and diagnosing the cars and transmissions. Older mechanics resent that big time.

I owned my own shop from 1981 to 2006, and got lucky and sold it. Which allows me to write these blogs and answer transmission questions for people. I keep up to date on new transmissions and what goes wrong with them and how to effectively fix them.

Now a days, it is a much better value to buy transmissions from a large supply company who has the power to supply excellent  transmissions from used to rebuilt or new transmissions that are pre tested, guaranteed and ready to go. GotTransmissions.com has proven themselves by outperforming the competition, putting their money into a superior product, as opposed to a lot of BS sensationalistic advertising.
