    Ed has been in the Parts industry for "my whole life", he says. He enjoys working in the Parts department because, "it's a detailed job which keeps you challenged and focused.

He mentioned that he likes how Subaru has a wide variety of accessories available. 

    Beyond working as a Parts Manager, Ed has a wife, two grown children and a grand daughter. He enjoys fishing and camping. "Camping in the mountains of NC was an annual event in my household. I love how the area in the mountains is so remote and cooler in the summer." It should be noted that Ed is a 'real' camper meaning he sleeps in a tent on the ground, no RV or air mattress for this rural family!

  • Gil Mendoza

    Gil says he grew up having an interest in anything that had a motor because his dad and brothers spent a lot of time riding and working on motorcycles when he was little. It was in high school when he decided he was going to go into the auto industry, and he hasn't regretted the decision since!

    Even though he has spent a lot of time around motorcycles Gil is a Subaru guy through and through. He is currently rebuilding a 98 Subaru Legacy GT and is in college working on a major in mechanical engineering. "Everything in the GT is being replaced from the seat cushions to the engine. I am even rebuilding the engine to be part hybrid."
