Friendly, Personal Service.

From drag racing to... providing you with the best service possible!

Jim is New Zealand Trade Certified and has over 35 years experience serving the Papakura community in the automotive trade industry.

Drag racing is for me, the ultimate combination of hard work, commitment, and adrenaline; I reckon that anything that feels that good shouldn't be easy to achieve.
