Stan Bassett has always had a knack for the industry. It all started in his own garage as a kid working on cars he & his family drove. In 1972, Stan successfully completed one of the first Automotive ASE Certification tests offered. Shortly after, he joined the US Air Force during the Vietnam conflict and was assigned in Great Britain along side of the Royal Air Force in support of NATO as a jet fighter Crew Chief; repairing F4 Phantom fighter jets, and then stateside assigned to  F-15 Eagle fighter jets. At night, he worked at a local automotive shop while stationed in england servicing & repairing British automobiles. After receiving an honorable discharge from the military, he returned to his birthplace, Houston, Texas, to work for Southwest Volkswagen; a large local dealership. There, he worked as a line technician & received extensive specialized training from Volkswagen of America. Stan later joined Southpoint Porsche-Audi of Houston as a Diagnostician & Shop Foreman where he received more industry accreditation. In the early 1980's, Stan joined BMW Auto Center; another top dealership in Houston, where he continued the role of Shop Foreman & Diagnostician. He also performed heavy line work on BMW engines & transmissions.  He benefited from several on-site training courses, quality control programs & obtained numerous certificates of accomplishment. Currently, Stan holds a Master ASE Automotive Technician certification & is certified in all eight automotive areas.
