Joe Entrekin, bought his first German car, a '71 BMW 2002, in 1973. Because of the remoteness of service, and the subsequent dissatisfaction with the service that was available, he took on more and more of the service and repair of his own vehicle. This continued through several other BMW's. In 1984, a local attorney asked him to solve a brake problem with his ’79 528I, which he did. That led to the complete refurbishment of the car. The attorney was very happy with the work, and soon Joe was taking care of another BMW of his, then a couple of Mercedes. The attorney told his friends, so pretty soon Joe didn’t have any spare time anymore. It became evident that Joe was being called from his engineering job to a new career to offer top quality service and repair of German cars.
