None of sissy crap like air conditioned waiting room with Sally Jesse Raphael on.
No computerized spin balance
No clean restrooms.
No machine to dismount the tire.

He IS the machine

You can hold your load and wait like a grown up.

Just like the one I went to today to get a tire patched. I love being there when they are setting fire to a tire to get a seal.

I’ve been taking small jobs and swaps to him since I was in high school. I told him that today.

He’s 65 years old

Told me that he’s been working at
that little family shop for 48 years

Used to be a brother helping him but moved to Florida with all of his money 😃

Ole boy sits on a car seat and does crossword puzzles outside the shop. See him out there that means he’s OPEN.

I don’t know why he won’t charge decent fees.

It’s been “fee dollas” for 20+ years

You just have always shove 10,15,$20 in his hand.

Not sure if they are afraid to ask for much or don’t think their time is worth a whole lot.
They really fill a niche down here in Shîtsville Tenn. I’m always needing spares made up or trailer tires mounted up.

While I was there today, 2 old ladies pulled in. He had to add a quart of oil in her car. No charge, does that stuff all do long.

Used to be a little guy here in town. Looked all the world like Danny DeVito. He’d change my wife’s oil. Costed less than what you could buy the oil and filter for. Awesome fella. He passed away a couple of years back.

I'd like to have seen his wheel balancing. Cool to know places like that still exist.
