  • The best fix-it shop guys in the West

    Alan Cowan:
    Alan has been servicing European cars since he was in college in the midEuropean car mechanic seventies.  He is the owner of Falconworks and makes sure your wants and needs are explicitly adhered to.  For problem-solving, beautiful śsthetics (like the Aston Martin photo on the right), and for tuning carbs. he's the best there is.  Exotic car appraiser.

    Bill Collins:Land Rover and Jaguar mechanic
    Bill is our repair shop's other old-timer.  Originally trained as a Ford Factory tech in the mid-seventies, he began his English car experience at Rovers West 20-plus years ago.  He was driving a TR7 at the time (hahaha). He is very thorough and careful: never will even a washer go missing.

    Michelle Ward:the best Customer Service in auto repair
    She has had considerable experience in the auto parts business, prior to joining our team. Her animated background including a stint as a wild-lands firefighter makes her a welcome addition to the esoteric world of exotic, classic, collector and vintage car maintenance and  repair.

    As a team we bring the machinist, mechanic, metallurgist, engineer, parts specialist and management together to fix each thing right. As a team we bring all of Tucson the highest standard of repair at the most reasonable rates. But please, don't come to us looking for for a cheaper product ... just a better value.
