Tarance Gaines was born in Brooklyn New York, the oldest of 4 children.

Although too young to drive, his first love was a 1964 Ford Mustang; although during those days, finding material to read about cars was scarce he was almost like an automobile encyclopedia researching any information he could find about cars.

One of his most memorable Christmas gifts was a model engine that required assembling the internal parts to make the moving parts work.

His love, passion, and ability to repair automobiles ultimately lead to him becoming the family’s mechanic tuning and replacing parts.

Over time he dabbled a little with purchasing cars in need of work, fixing them, and selling them for a profit.

After graduating from Florida A & M University with a degree in Sociology and working for the State Of Florida, his love for automobiles was evident to those who met him and he found himself consulting, guiding, and assisting people to purchase reliable transportation that lasts them for years.

From changing drive trains to bodywork, Tarance has performed just about every kind of repair possible on vehicles while remaining current on the technology upgrades through the years.
