Automotive and Diesel Mechanic

Joshua's fascination with cars began at a young age when he saw a 1969 RS/SS Camaro on the cover of one of his dad’s car magazines. It was at that point that he knew he wanted to work with cars. He spent the better part of a decade as a trained automotive and diesel mechanic, where he was able to perform diagnostics, mechanical, and electrical repairs. Joshua has worked in many settings, including dealerships and small-time service shops. He is also in the process of restoring his ’67 pickup truck.
