the mechanic

Jake and a lot of his friends are really into cars, so he has been working on them for a few years now. He’s made a ton of modifications to his own and does all of the maintenance on it. He does occasional work on our vehicles, but we still take them to the garage for most things. I was recently lamenting the fact that we have to get new brakes/rotors on our car before it gets inspected again and he cheerfully offered to take on the task. He said the quality would be better and it cost about half as much (because there were no labor charges). While Brian has a lot of skills, working on cars is not one of them, so it’s nice to have a mechanic in the house!
