Gary "Doogie" Shop Owner

Made in America - Gary Houseman - The Owner

My name is Gary, also known as "Doogie". in 1995 I graduated from Purdue with a BA in aircraft manufacturing and repair. I came to CA in 1996 and I needed employment until the aircraft industry had growth. So I took a job with Made in Japan. I found that I believed in the shop's mission and decided to make it my career. As it turns out, auto repair and customer service proved to be very rewarding. I enjoyed the challenges that the automotive repair industry had to offer and I enjoy helping clients get honest service and getting/keeping their vehicles on the road. In 2004 I took over ownership of the Fulton location and moved it to Howe Ave with the determination to take our shop to the next level of our evolution by providing a unique experience for both our clients and our crew. In 2004 we out grew the Howe location and moved to our current location back on Fulton Ave. Our efforts keep us focused on our clients and their total experience here. We enjoy what we do and look forward to what the future has in store for us. I've also worked with B.A.R (Bureau of Automotive Repair) in Licensing as a SME (Subject Matter Expert) for 6yrs, ASE NATEF advisory board, Automotive Training Institute client for 11yrs, and sat on the PAC advisory board for UTI (Universal Technical Institute) here in Sacramento for 10yrs.  As our family grows we will continue to define our industry and set the bar for quality, honesty, and integrity!
