Auto Pros on the Road is a new original video series — brought to you by ShopOwner, our sister brand, as well as TechShop — that will showcase stories of automotive aftermarket service professionals. Throughout the series, viewers will follow the Auto Pros into repair shops as they speak with shop owners and technicians about their challenges, their stories and their values.
In Episode 1, the Auto Pros talk with Jim Bryant, the owner of Fleet Doc, and his employees, including Mohammad Noori, from Afghanistan, who once worked as an interpreter for the U.S. Army, serving in the military for seven years.
“As long as it has an engine, I love to work on it,” Noori said. He learned about cars from his brothers in Afghanistan and since coming to the U.S. has worked at Fleet Doc for four years, learning more every day. He said the shop staff is like a family. “They’re all like brothers to me.”
We also hear from Wes, a technician, who has been around wrenches since the day he was born. His dad was a member of the U.S. army motor pool, so Wes has always had an automotive passion. He even has six of his own cars to work on when he’s off the clock at Fleet Doc — but don’t ask him if they all currently run.
