Firestone? Are you for real? I guess if you are just looking for a Jiffy Lube experiance for your late model car, then sure. May does super work but you will dearly for every moment of his time. If you need good new and used parts at a reasonable price, or service on call John.

Star Garage! in west Tyler

Ray at Star Garage is by far the best Tech in the Tyler area. He used to give Mays f. Car advice all the time.

I worked for Ray about 5/6 years til he closed down then went to a very small group of people.
Where did he move to?

Thanks ironponygrl. Talked to ray today! It's been a long time. A lot of history, he even talked to my shop helper the other day. we are getting old.He told me he worked on your car. Oil pan? he said you did good by shutting it down when you did. We may even have to have a Old Star Garage reunion.
