Tributes to Bert McGrew. He began work at Haverlah Motor Company as Service Manager in the late 1940's and continued until it was sold. He organized the garage with about 7 bays, added a pit for wheel alignment, supervised body and paint work, handled most of the wrecker calls, and kept a good accounting of all service schedules and costs. He had a car wash and lube center. He painted the entire garage area a light color and set up big fans. The machine shop was well designed for easy storage of specialty tools. Although this was a Ford dealership, everything from farm tractors to school buses and diesel tractors came through the doors and were fixed. He hired mechanics and taught many classes. When automatic transmissions came out, he was able to take them apart and fix them. Bert built a heavy duty wrecker, equipped with impressive hydraulic air brakes and adjustable lights for night duty. On a personal level, his auto had the first known backup lights built right into the body, using head lights!
