HI everyone, Bob here. I’ve been in the tire and service business since 1988. I have had an attraction to anything with wheels since I was 5 yrs old. I recall my first car was a 1966 Chevrolet Impala. Bought the car before I had a license at 15yrs old. I bought recap snows from Foshays Sandwich shop. H78-15. $10.00 each! When I am not at the store you’ll find me driving my convertible, at car shows, family events, stock car racing and watching NASCAR, and of course keeping an eye on the Red Sox and Bruins. I am If I could pick any car it would be a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible black with black interior.350 cid built to the hilt, 4 speed. "See you on the phone"

We’ll it’s been a full career in the auto/tire industry, since 1970 at that. Will be celebrating my 50th year soon! Family inheritance – not! My first car – a 1972 Camaro. My dream car – tie between a 1967 Stingray Convertible or a 911 Porsche Carrera with whale tale. Boston sports fan through and through – whatever the season: Pats, Celts, Sox, Bruins. If I am not here, I enjoy working out, sports, and boogie. My favorite saying – “Where are the keys? Or Plutz!!”

I've professionally been in the industry since June of 2013.  I've always had an interest in cars. My Dad and I have been attending car shows since before I could walk, so naturally a hobby and interest was created, when I was offered a position by Don Foshay, I couldn't help but turn a hobby into a career! Outside of work, I’m playing sports, (Casco Bay Sports Softball league) being outside, camping, boating, kayaking - and naturally, turning a wrench on one of my MANY projects. Teams I follow- the New York Yankees, the Patriots, and Brews On First. Cars notably, I'd love to own a factory Paxton Supercharged 1957 Ford Thunderbird. With only 194 ever being built, you can probably imagine how hard they are to come by. Even though they were only "rated" for 300 horsepower, they were ahead of their time and an absolute "old school cool" muscle car before the muscle car era even began.  My first car was a 1994 Volvo 850 Turbo that I boosted from 7 to 17 psi, the car was an absolute sleeper, still miss it.  I love to say: "Why put off to tomorrow what can be done today."

Getting into the tire industry/automotive has been a great opportunity. I started in 2017, and it’s going very well. My first car was a 99 Acura Legend, and the vehicle I’m working to get is an F150. I am an avid follower of Boston sports – Sox, Celtics, Pats,and Bruins – best sports city in the world! Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,and sometimes it rains. I keep that in mind because I like to golf. I enjoy spending down time with my wife and our dog, as well as attending equestrian events. I look forward to meeting you!

Hi all, Steve here. I’ve been working in the automotive business since back in 1988. Everyday is a good day, just some are better than others! My first car was a 1970 Austin America. I am looking for a ’55 Chevy Pickup. Hobby – I’d say race cars.

Hi all, I’m Alan. I’ve been in the business since 1987. Time flies! I started in the tire/divuto business right out of high school at 18 yrs old. Tire/divuto retail is all I've ever done. This is my 3rd employer in all this time. I first bought a 1989 Camaro, and there wasn’t a bolt on the car I didn’t touch. I performed most of the services on the car myself including engine swaps, transmission and rear end replacements. I spent lots of years on the drag strip with that car! If I had to say what my dream car would be, it would be another 1969 Camaro! When it’s not cars, I am into bass fishing and bodybuilding. I feel very fortunate to live in New England. We have the best sports teams in the country! From the Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins to the Celtics and the Revolution. But baseball with the Red Sox will always be my favorite! Remember, the day you stop being young is the day you get old."

Hi, my name is Ryan. I’m a Libra Rooster,and I love walks on the beach at sunrise, not sun set…just kidding. As a kid, I always liked to take things apart just to see if I could put it back together. This led to being an engineer in the U.S. Army. Now, I’ve been in the automotive repair business since 2014. I started with a Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS as my first car, and if I could drive anything it would be a 1981 Delorean DMC-12 of course! My favorite sports teams might fool you - Boston Bruins, Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and the Oakland Raiders! I love to shoot at the range, and playing games with my son. Words of wisdom: “Don’t do it unless you have time to do it right the first time.”
