Owner and Head Mechanic Dan has been fixing and working on cars all of his life. Dan opened his first gas station in 1978. He has been a licensed mechanic for over 30 years and has owned three gas stations and one auto repair shop. Up until a few years ago he owned and operated the huge Exxon Gas Station on Francis Lewis Blvd down the block from Holy Cross High School. Dan is a fully licensed auto mechanic and graduated Exxon Training School. Dan has owned both Getty and Exxon Gas stations in the past.
Between 1977 and 1978, Mechanic Dan built the Taxi Cabs for the movie The Wiz starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Lena Horne and Richard Pryor. The Taxi Cabs were made out of golf carts. Dan cut the golf carts in half and made them longer. He then built custom fiberglass bodies and re-wired all of the carts. (Pictures Below)
