A native of Sutton, West Virginia
has been working on cars since he was a child growing up in Elyria, Ohio
. He had a natural affinity for it. As a kid in high school, Bob worked at a Shell™
station near his house doing oil changes, pumping gas, and other services in that manner.
In 1971, when he was 17, Bob's uncle offered him a job working on Volkswagens™
at his shop, which was one of the biggest Volkswagen businesses around. He learned a lot from his uncle, who was a certified mechanic.
