Our parts department enables us to supply all of our needs and keeps our cost to the customer low through volume buying. We are a Dealer/Warehouse for Precision of New Hampton Inc. Converters, endorsed by the likes of Jay Leno for the finest remanufactured torque converters in the world. Come see the nostalgic collections in our warm, inviting waiting area. License plates, hub caps, tools, books, signs, Hollywood memorabilia, and more line our walls. We have been collecting for many years and finally have a place to show it all off. Many of our items have even come from our wonderful more seasoned customers.


About Monte


From the time he was eight years old Monte helped his father at his Beverly Hills shop "Country Club Auto Service". Through his years of experience there, he gained a strong work ethic, an appreciation of hard work, and a love for fixing things. While at Country Club Auto Service, he specialized in American as well as exotic foreign car repair. He enjoyed the privilege of servicing Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, etc. for many of the movie stars of that decade. Monte next attended BYU, where he studied Electrical Engineering continuing his love for tinkering. He worked for Hughes Aerospace designing electronic circuits for the laser engineering division. Monte's career then took him to work for General Motors as a factory Representative/Engineering liaison for the motor home industry. Wanting a safe, friendly environment in which to raise his family, Monte transferred with General Motors from Los Angeles, CA to Grand Junction, CO in 1975, where he became the Western Slope Factory Representative for the company. General Motors eventually wanted him to relocate again to Denver. Not wishing to leave the lovely Grand Valley and the peaceful living it offered his family, he was spurred to follow his dreams and start his own business. For the first 15 years he handled all aspects of the business with the full support of his beautiful wife. During this time he developed many transmission upgrades and innovations to improve durability and longevity. Monte is known nationwide for his work in the transmission industry. He has pioneered Heavy Duty improvements to the Cummings Diesel and Allison 1000 transmission. In the Grand Valley he enjoys the reputation he has earned from many loyal customers, through years of hard work, integrity, dependability and service. You will receive the benefit of his expertise when you visit us.
