Brian Zahn

Shop Manager

Brian has been serving the local motorist community. Although he's been wrenching on anything with an engine since a young buck, Brian's career began at the local Chevrolet dealership where he acquired necessary skills and knowledge to perform auto repair and diagnostics at a commercial level. Brian then took his experience and secured a new position with a family-owned business previously known as PJ’s Automotive. At PJ’s, Brian built on his skillset, adding his ability to fabricate custom exhaust. Brian specializes in custom exhaust fabrication, computerized diagnostics, and classic vehicle repair. Brian's experience over the last 25 years allows him to be accurate, efficient, and 100% transparent with customers.
