The best was this "Bear Skin Rug" promo that Grumpy did.....later it became a centerfold for Car Craft Magazine - Priceless.

Was "Grumpy" really grumpy? The reason I ask is it seems any automotive genius I have worked with has not been a people person (and that's putting it nicely).

Yes, the Grump was very Special.....not many could or would match his Special Candor.

If or when he earned an award......or if you paid him the money due for his services......he never once said Thank You.

Sounds like a mechanic I worked with a few months ago. A fantastic tech but a jerk to deal with. Had the same type of tech at a couple of other shops I worked at.
