AUGUST 2018 THE SHOP 25 so much as a way to call in and get on the schedule. After he'd been at it for a few months, however, repairing all sorts of air-cooled German vehicles, his friend and land- lord showed up one day and said "I know what you're doing here and I'm going to have to raise the rent." Nervously, young Staggs asked, "OK, how much?" His new rent was $12 per month and he was able to remain in business. After about a year, he decided it was time to move to a more appropriate business location. Staggs looked through the local papers and found an ideal spot right in his home- town. While the $70 monthly rent was more than five-times what he had been paying, it was in an industrial location and he had a month-to-month lease. "I can pull out of here any time I want," Staggs jokes— having now been there for 44 years. He did move once, to the unit directly behind the original, for better feng shui, he says, (and so that the sun wasn't blinding him in the afternoon). He's also expanded a bit since then. He doubled the size of his shop by renting the unit next door and he also has space across the parking lot that he uses mostly for storage. HAPPY PLACE Fortunately, Staggs also doubled the number of employees to keep pace to two. Kerry Sink, whom Staggs has known since childhood, was brought on in the early 1990s. He spent six years working for Staggs, left for a decade and has been back for the last 14 years. Customers come calling from as far away as Palm Springs, Seattle and Phoenix. The restoration project Staggs is cur- rently working on came from Los Angeles and had been parked there for close to three decades. Porsches that have been idle for a long time are not unusual. "Some of them have been parked for over 30 years," he explains. Although most repairs and restorations in Jack Staggs' Auto Repair are done for go and not for show, he doesn't shy away from putting show cars together. Many of his customers have won awards from the local Porsche 356 club's Concours. Staggs' retail business boasts customers of many types. One thing that they all seem to have in common is loyalty An old camper has found new life in the back of the shop as a storage area.
