Jeff Pheasant

ASE MASTER CERTIFIED AND CARRIES A 1G & 2G CERTIFICATION

Jeff has worked for some of the "Old School Masters" and has built a lifetime of experience from their teachings. It is important to Jeff that customers know we are loyal to them and their cars needs. "we aren't just offering a product for sale.  We offer service, knowledge and experience. As a "Hands On" owner Jeff makes sure every employee is provided with monthly opportunities to attend classes and sharpen their skills. He wants everyone he employs to stay up on the newest standards and methods in car maintenance and repair. His passion outside of the shop is "HORSEPOWER." He visits the SEMA show every year (and brings a few employees sometimes) to learn about the newest trends in automotive technology. Jeff loves his family and supports his wife and daughter in their passion-Horses and his son in his passion-Motorcycling. "I Love Horses as long as they're in cylinders!" Is a catch phrase you can hear Jeff repeat around the shop on any given day.

Greg Pheasant

Greg is the son of the owners of A Master Mechanic.  Following in his father’s footsteps, mechanically speaking, he had a wrench in his hand at a very young age.  Around age four, he was working on his bicycles and a couple years later, helping dad in the home garage.  Quickly picking up on the art of auto repair, he has helped start the family business, leaving briefly to work for a local dealership.  Greg has held his emissions testing license since the age of 17, has become ASE certified, and when at the dealer he became dealer certified with specialist training on rotary engines.  Recently, Greg and his wife have two children and only time will tell if Greg’s son follows in the family automotive repair tradition.
