Owner’s résumé

Pantazis discovered his interest in automobiles by working as shop help of an independent garage specializing in Volkswagen, in 1984. Influenced by his education at Ottawa Technical High School, he became a registered apprentice at Jim Tubman Chev Olds.

After successfully acquiring his Automotive Technician's Licence in 1989, he moved on to Bel-Air Toyota. In September 1992, Pantazis fulfilled his lifelong dream and opened his own repair facility. A Dealer's License was added in 1995.
