New Name, New Beast Car, Same Great Service

Krysten Laine and Rene Aguirre decided to change the name of their beloved Urban Suburban to The Mechanic located at 3328 Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette because they work on more than just SUVs; they wanted their new name to reflect their broad focus on foreign and domestic cars, restoration and fabrication work. To showcase their talents they are also launching the Triple Nickel Resto Race Fab team, and debuted their creation - a muscular modification of a 1964 Ford Galaxie, now an "off-road Baja beast" - at a recent "south of the border" themed party, prior to taking off for their first off-road race, the Baja 1000 - an adrenalin-filled, dusty, challenging adventure around the Baja peninsula that is not for the faint of heart. Owners, builders and racers were on hand at the party to answer questions about their year-long Baja project. C. Tyson
