Musings of a Shop Owner’s Wife


My name is Claudia and I am married to Jason. Together we own Mickey’s Auto Repair. My background has nothing to do with cars whatsoever since I worked in the world of designer fashion, both in Germany and in California.

What I do know about cars is probably very similar to what our customers know, men and women alike, so this blog will contain articles about maintenance and other important car related things.

There are things I feel strongly all of us should know about, which are not only what fluids to check and what to do in car emergencies, but also things I find in shop owner magazines and different web sites. Cars are becoming increasingly more computerized and there are a lot of things changing in the auto repair business.

That said, besides having fun with this blog, I will share some topics from our side as shop owners and hope to get some feedback from those who take the time to read my ramblings.
