I was fascinated by automobiles from the young age of a toddler, spending many weekend days running around my families' yard with a "Charlie Chips" tin lid in both hands as a make-believe steering wheel. I can only imagine what type of vehicle I was pretending to drive - more than likely it was not yet a Hemi as many have now grown to know me and my root belief in Hemi's and the mean muscle cars from the Chrysler/Dodge lines. Cars fascinated me throughout my youth, which probably kept this young buck from many troubles with dating and the opposite sex. My passion and every waking hour were normally focusing on a car, a high-speed motor, and wheeling and dealing to trade one vehicle for another. My wife of 43 years, and I laugh today over memories of trying to count how many cars I owned by the time we started dating 44 years ago. Let's just say it was more than we could count and certainly more than we could remember these years later.

During high school and afterwards, I found myself punching a time clock while turning wrenches at independent garages and dealerships. Working at Gate City Chrysler Plymount and Smith Stokes in Reidsville is when I knew that I had found my real love - Chryslers. Through many hours of hands-on learning, book learning and certifications and some sleepless nights wrestling with a trouble repair, I knew I had found my niche and never felt I worked another day. I was living the dream. I always loved the challenge of motor and diagnostic situations and was gifted with mechanical ability to work through mechanical problems with success.

My exposure at independent garages and dealerships broadens my automotive knowledge of automatic transmissions, manual transmissions, brakes/axles/suspensions, electrical systems, along with air-conditioning and engine performance. I couldn't get enough of the automotive repair industry. When I wasn't working for my employer, I was doing side jobs to support our family that was starting to grow after a few years of marriage. Two sons later, 30 + years of marriage, I had gained the trust and respect of quite a following of customers. With my wife's agreement, we started praying for God's guidance on becoming an entrepreneur and sharing my years of experience with a team of my own. God opened the doors without force and Oakley's Auto Worx began.
