In the mid 1940’s, the Staley Brothers started a garage and Flying A gas station where Mountain Mechanics is located today. In 1974, Chris Currier was 24 years old and had returned from his Army service tour in Korea. He was working in Felton as a tow truck operator. Chris and a partner scraped together enough money to rent the space from where the Staley Brother’s Garage had been, and started their business on April 1st, 1974. They were so short of money they even had a pay phone installed and used that as their business phone. After a year, they let the gas station portion of the business go and concentrated on the automotive repairs. The partner left for a corporate job and Chris found another partner. Chris eventually bought out that partner and he has been the sole proprietor of Mountain Mechanics since 1979.
Chris and his staff of Dana Fowler, who is the head automotive technician, Dwayne Tennent, and Ben Knudson, who is Chris’s grandson, offer complete automotive service, both foreign and domestic. Mountain Mechanics prioritizes repairs to customers based on safety, preventative maintenance and upcoming recommended repairs.
Chris and Nancy Currier and the staff of Mountain Mechanics, appreciate the great customer support for the last 42 years and look forward to serving you in the future.
