J gets his love for cars from his dad. His father’s car in high school was a 1969 El Camino SS that had a 396Ci motor and was built by a local drag racing legend. J grew up hearing about that car, and he made it a point to build something cooler, and faster. He finally accomplished his goal when he completed fixing up his 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The car has been upgraded to the point where his dad’s El Camino does not even come close to his Mustang, “I let him take the car for a spin around the block and when he came back he was definitely impressed and said quietly… that thing MIGHT give my old El Camino a run for its money… which meant, my car would have smoked his! But I let it slide and grabbed the keys back smiling. He is the reason that I have the passion for cars that I do.”
J grew up in the San Diego area in a town called Jamul. He has always been based in San Diego but he was able to travel plenty growing thanks to one of his other passions, soccer. J actually represented the United States at the youth level and travelled all over the world thanks to his soccer abilities. Nowadays Jay is a family man; he is a very proud dad of a 2 year old girl. He says she is the best thing that ever happened to him and when he isn’t at work helping his customers, he is spending time with his daughter. He also has a 7 year old French bulldog who he calls his little boy. Jay attributes his exceptional customer service to the listening skills he has picked up raising his daughter.
If you want to talk to one of the coolest custom car building, soccer playing, family men in the world, ask for J when you call in. He would love to tell you about the next masterpiece he is working on.
