Do-It-Yourself Garage Coming to Charlottesville


March 21, 2013

A new auto-repair shop is coming to Charlottesville that allows you to make the repairs yourself.

The Auto Hobby Shop will give you all the tools you need, and charge you $28 an hour to use them.

The shop will have on-site technicians to help with answering questions, as well as specialty tools.

Owner, Tracy Carver, says the shop is an idea 22 years in the making.

"It's a place where you have everything you need and don't have to worry about it," said Carver. "Cause we supply everything except parts and labor."

Auto Hobby Shop will be holding an open house on Saturday, March 30, to raise funds for the finishing touches for the garage.
