Larry J (Owner and Mechanic)
Since Larry was 5 years old, he always had a love of cars. By the age of 15 he was working on cars professionally. Through out his career he has attended the GM training center to hone his skills to become the master craftsman he is today. With over 46 years of experience he can diagnose a car's problem quickly and effectively. Although he is well versed in all facets of a car, his heart is in classic car restoration. Restoring beauty to an old car is his favorite. 
After being in the industry for a while he decided, 21 years ago, to open up his own shop so he can treat cars and people with the integrity they deserve. He is in the shop daily to make sure that his standards are being met. He tells everyone that "We treat your car like our own." 
Eric Eggert
Eric has been at Larry J's since 1999. He went to tech school for automotive technology, but has been working on cars since he was a teenager. Bringing 30 years of experience to the team, Eric really enjoys the detail work like rebuilding engines. He is a focused and well detailed worker that can tackle any project that comes in our door. 


Leo Tremper III
Leo has been a part of the team for almost 9 years. Much like Eric, Leo has been working on cars since he was a teenager too. Since he had a young start, he is bringing 45 years of experience to Larry J's Automotive. He has spent 2 years at school for welding and another 2 years at autobody school learning the techniques that make him succesful today. With his schooling and years in the industry, he considers metal and frame work to be his specialty. 
Guillermo "Memo" Raudales
Memo brings 10 years of experience to the team at Larry J's. He started out as an apprentice elsewhere but has been here working hard for 5 years. During his apprenticeship he learned detailing techiniques, metal fabrication and framework. Although he is skilled in multiple autobody techniques, he enjoys metal fabrication the most.
