Ross started tinkering around with cars very young and by high school was convincing all of his buddies to own junker off-road vehicles. That combo made for some amazing stories to say the least. He had a successful landscape business in Littleton right out of high school, which he sold to head for the mountains. He spent the majority of his professional mechanic years building, tuning, maintaning and repairing snowmobiles and motorcycles at The Clinic in Minturn. From there, he worked in construction, served as the maintenance and facilities director of a large youth camp & mananged a large transportation fleet. Throughout his working career, you could always find Ross in his garage re-building a 4x4 or out wheeling. He has gotten the chance to work with Baja Pits & drive a chase vehicle for the Baja 1000 dirtbike race. Ross truly is an off road enthusiast. His vehicle of choice is anything International Harvester. Stop by the shop and you will find his Scout in progress!
Vanessa had absolutely no clue about cars or what 4 wheeling was until she met Ross. On their first date, he picked her up in a rusty old Toyota 4 Runner (as seen below) and she thought he needed a new car! Little did she know he had been working on it for quite some time. Vanessa graduated from Texas A&M and moved to the mountains where she meet Ross. Vanessa has a background in retail management, business administration & marketing. She takes care of their two children, builds this fabulous website & is a portrait photographer. Her dream vehicle (which she couldn't remember the name of when asked) is a Nissan Armada or a restored Grand Wagoneer "Woody" like the one she had in the photo below.
Having the chance to own & operate a large autoshop has been a dream of ours.
