Little Nicky Brunner
Nick Brunner

     Nick Brunner   was born and raised in Mentor, OH.  At a very early age his parents Ray and Helen observed an unusual behavior.... instead  of  playing  with  his  toys,    he  was  taking  them  apart  and putting  them  back  together.   It  wasn't long before Nick was building things he could ride in.  At age 10 he built his first go-cart.   At age 11, a bigger, faster go-cart. And things accelerated from there (pun intended).

Nick Brunner

     Although he grew up in the Brunner Funeral Home on Mentor Avenue, Nick naturally took a greater interest in  the death of cars. He began fixing the many family business vehicles before he himself could even drive them. The Brunners were also avid RVers and Nick helped convert a Cleveland city bus into the family's camper.  Nick attended Mentor Vo-Ed for auto mechanics and got his first job at Shandle  Auto at age 15. Phil Shandle  was  Nick's  only  boss

and   at   age  22  Nick opened  his  own  business in  the  garage  behind the  funeral   home.   Before   long  there  was too much automotive business and  Nick's  dad  gave  him  the  'ol  size  10.  Nick  built  his   current shop on Hart Street in 1984 on what was then  swamp  land.  He  was one of the very first AAA approved  auto  repair  shops  and  one  of the first ASE  certified  master technicians.  He is now celebrating 41 years in business in Mentor.
