Voigt said in the article that computerization of vehicles means good car technicians are in high demand. The shop combines the knowledge of technology with an old-fashioned approach to customer service.

When Voigt and his wife had two daughters, many people said maybe they would marry someone who could take over the business. Voigt shared in the article, “But that was just a bunch of sexist hogwash.”

“My grandfather taught us how to treat people,” he added in the article. “My father took lessons from him and his experiences were passed on to me and now I often hear that in my daughter.”
