Hesston Auto Repair is owned and operated by Bryan Epp. This is the story of the shop, as told by him.

The Story

In 1987, my 1973 Plymouth Fury quit running. My wife, Janell, and I scraped up the few dollars we had, plus some borrowed money and had the car towed to a shop. The shop called us back and told us the timing chain had broken. They convinced us it would run if they replaced it. The money to fix it was about 1/2 of what we had. They called us back to tell us that the timing chain did not fix it, but that the valves were bent and it needed the engine heads repaired. The money to fix it was more than we had. We told them to charge us for what they did and tow the car back.
I learned later that if the timing chain was broken, they should have checked cylinder leakage before they repaired the timing chain.

My Vision

My Vision is to treat you like I wanted to be treated.
Every time I start working on someone's vehicle, I have in mind what happened to us. I respect you, and, as it says in Phillipians 2:3 "Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself." I try to think of you first.

What happened to the Fury?

It sat in an vaccant cow lot for several years until someone bought it, put a different engine in it, and it ended its life in a smash-up derby.
