My name is Blake, and welcome to one of my greatest passions. As far back as I remember, I’ve always been into cars. I remember going to the Woodward dream cruise with my
dad when I was 5 years old, and loving every minute of it. I always looked forward to the sound of the exhaust, the shine of the chrome, and enjoying the feel good spirit everyone had. When I was a young teenager, my grandfather and I embarked on a restoration of my first car. It was a truck, actually, a 1982 Ford F-100.
Although I had always been in body shops and speed shops with him, this was the first time I was hands on with my grandpa, who taught me everything there was to know about bodywork and engine work, the right way! This led to a lifelong obsession with all classic cars, and anything to do with them. I spent my childhood and teenage years studying, reading, and learning anything there was to know about American classic cars.
Have you ever made a choice in your life that led to something great? Through word of mouth, I started working for a friend of a friend dealing with classic car parts. I quickly learned the ins and outs of the parts industry. Eventually, after learning everything there was to know about the business, the opportunity arose, and I was able to take it over and run it as my own.
Since that day, I have put my heart and soul into what is now known as TNT Auto Parts. The choice I made to take over the business was one of the best decisions of my life. I am able to take my passion for cars and help so many looking to restore their own. I enjoy seeing yearly friends at trade shows and swap meets, helping customers on the phone get exactly what parts they need, installing my products on customers’ cars at our brick and mortar facility, and so much more. It is the most difficult job I’ll ever love.
See if TNT Auto will be at a show near you…
