Meet PJ Lapham

PJ’s first engine rebuild was back in 1978. It was a small project that he and his dad worked on for about a month. PJ remembers that thrilling moment when they were about to start up the engine for the first time, “There was that major anticipation – that scared and hopeful moment. We turned the key, and sure enough, it worked. Since then, I’ve been interested in cars, their designs, and their engineering. I’m fascinated by how all of the elements work together.”

When PJ had the opportunity to buy Master Transmission and Auto Care, he had little hesitation. He quit his job and applied for a business loan and the rest is history. You could say that technology is in his blood. In addition to auto repair, he has been a computer programmer, web developer, and systems architect.
