I was born and raised here in Bellingham. I have been interested in cars and mechanical things for as long as I can remember, and much of my childhood was spent reading car magazines, drawing pictures and building scale models. I began my automotive career at age 13, pumping gas, servicing vehicles and changing/repairing tires at my father's service station.
Over the years, my knowledge and abilities have grown. I acquired significant on the job experience working at a store facility, a dealership, and several independent shops. Additionally, I have attended many professional seminars and classes, and worked with and for the best in the business. I have been an ASE Master Certified Technician with an Advanced L1 Diagnostics certificate for many years now.
I look forward to working for you,
Tom Forster, Service Advisor
I was born in Seattle and began my interest in cars at young age when my father taught me the basics of auto repair on his 1973 Triumph TR6 and the family 1967 Plymouth Valiant Stationwagon. I have owned a '57 Cadillac Coupe Deville, '63 Impala Wagon, '66 Chev 3/4 ton pick-up, and a '71 Monte Carlo. I continued my interest in cars all the way through high school where I took auto shop and worked at a locally owned repair shop in Seattle. After I graduated high school, I went to Shoreline Community College earned my associates degree and then attended and graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelors of Arts in Music in 1998 and was a full time musician until I worked for Chuck in 2001. I am ASE certified as a Service Consultant. I still play drums quite often with various bands in Bellingham, Seattle and the region and have two beautiful daughters (Izzy and Sophie). I am here to assist you in whatever auto repair questions or concerns you have.
