About Me and Scoot’s Garage
My name is Jerry but everyone calls me Scoot. I got that nickname over 25 Years ago when I started working in a family-owned independent European specialty shop.
I created Scoots Garage to share some of the knowledge I’ve gained over the years with my readers. If you love cars, tools, and shop life Scoot’s Garage is for you! I will cover everything from the best tools and products to home projects. My goal is to provide YOU with in-depth how-to articles and advice you will enjoy.
I’ve always been a gearhead. Summers filled with building bikes and finding lawnmowers in the dump to fix were my heaven. One summer I got a call from my uncle to come down to the shop and work, the excitement at that age was unbelievable! That was over 25 years ago and I’m still there today.
I worked every summer from then on in the shop, learning from the best in the business. When high school came around I went to a tech school where I spent my 4 Years of high school taking regular classes for 4 weeks and then getting 4 Awesome weeks in the auto shop. After I got my driver’s license I’d leave school early as part of the work program and drive right to the shop. I can still remember finding change in the ashtray to put a couple of gallons in the tank to get there.
I started at the absolute bottom learning as I went, fixing cars and the shop itself. I am now the shop manager and partner in that business and I run my own shop through a separate business.
A few years ago I started blogging as a hobby and it quickly became one of my true passions. I love the process and sharing what I can with people. Scoots Garage is the first blog I started with absolutely no clue what I was doing. Over the years I have learned much about online blogging and business through creating multiple websites.
During this time Scoots Garage kind of sat around, funny thing is I ended up right back where I started, my true passion …
