I was hired by Mort right out of high school back in July of 1980 and worked for BAP for 11 years as an mechanic (before they were called technicians).
Back in the day there were 6 of us in the shop, Dave Presnail, Cameron Buchanan, Denny (Buzz) Canning and myself (Shawn Kubas) on floor and 2 radmen in the radshop, Bob MacDonald and Steve Rez.
In 1991 I had an opportunity to move on to a City of Hamilton Garage and after discussions with Mort and Steve I made that move. The City garage I am at still has a great relationship with BAP (now affiliated with NAPA) and has been a major parts supplier to this shop for well over 40 years providing excellent service (you place your order, hang up the phone and they are at your door!).
As I look back on my 40 years in the automotive industry, I want to take a moment to thank the Krieger family for giving me an opportunity to enter this field back in 1980!
