Owner/ASE Master Technician
Dave Mays has always been interested in insects. He amassed a collection, and by the time he went to Oregon State University, entomology became his specialization after considering forestry. He received a BS degree and completed a MS in entomology before migrating to Gainesville, Florida for a PhD in entomology (completed in 1975).
Frustrated with repair attempts by automotive “professionals” in Gainesville, he began to do his own repairs and maintenance. While working on his degree, Dave worked part-time at a Milex Precision Auto Tune-Up, where he sharpened his skills with carburetors, engine diagnostics and repairs under the supervision of James Latshaw and Brad Simpson.
