Jan Campbell told a story about a dream as a child of having a green MG and the story of a man who drove a Miata when it's engine head melted, and how when he brought it into the shop and she bought it for $250 and her shop rebuilt it. This was how she discovered her passion for the business of car repair. She bought the business from former West Bay Rotarian Steve Dixon, and she decided eventually to do the Giving Back program involving $5 per oil change which has amounted to $25,000 in giving to community organizations. She believes that the business of car repair involves educating people about what's going on with their car and safety. She started the Sisterhood of Automotive Knowledge, which is a car care clinic. This year it's May 24, the same night as the Penobscot School Dinner to support the Wheelchair Project.
