Todd Retired? But Not Forgotten
Todd was our all around, take on any challenge and win guy. Rumor has it that he’s now retired to an comfy and warm island off the coast of Georgia, but we hold out hope that he’ll leave that life of leisure and return to his roots.
No flashy toolbox here, Todd’s best tools are in his head, vintage Mitchell service manuals and years of experience. We still quote his trusty tagline which he uttered when faced with a challenge or unusual car, the timeless classic of “Nuts and bolts.” We miss you old man, but and have kept the porch light, or is that service light, on for you.
Adam IT Support
Those funny boxes with the video screens, what we call computers, and we have a lot of them at the Atlantic Motorcar Center – current count is 16, will soon be in the purview of our good friend Adam.
Be they Apple or PC, Windows or Mac OS, they are but child’s play to Adam, who is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel with his bare hands, and who, disguised as Adam K, a mild mannered IT guy by day, fights the never ending battle for Truth, Justice and the Atlantic Way...
