I posted about this in June of 2015 when it was still a goal:

the Girls Auto Clinic offers full-service auto repair, female mechanics, manis, pedis, and blowouts while you wait, all in a beautiful lounge tailored to women.

Women are fed up, and might be opening their own car service garages (will they discriminate and refuse to hire male employees?)

When one woman in Philadelphia was dumbfounded at the lack of women in the car mechanic industry, she decided to quit her job and plans to start her own car shop.

Patrice Banks, 34, was a materials engineer and manager at DuPont for 12 years, about six years ago, she said she looked for a female auto mechanic to find help, but couldn’t find one. She decided to go to school to become one, taking classes at a community college on the side. After two years, she received a diploma in automotive technology. In 2013, she started the Girls Auto Clinic, which offers workshops and consulting for women.

Banks said she wants to educate women so they feel confident taking care of their cars and avoid being swindled by the male-dominated car service industry.

The anticipated business will have a “beautiful lounge” that’s “welcoming and warm” and a nail salon, Banks said. Armed with a business plan, she has a location in the works in Philadelphia, and she has applied for funding.

Hilary Noack, a Centennial College auto body repair instructor, is hoping to raise $20,000 via an Indiegogo campaign to start Canada’s first all-female-staffed auto body shop.

She has had a passion for muscle cars and hot rods since she was a teenager and worked with a shop to restore her first car, a 1970 Oldsmobile. She turned that apprenticeship into a diploma from Centennial College, got a job at Toronto’s well-known Legendary Motorcar, then went back to her alma mater to teach.

She’s been instructing in the auto body and collision damage repair apprenticeship program for four years now.

While she already had most of the tools necessary to get a garage started, she still needed to raise some capital, and a traditional bank loan just wouldn’t do.

the All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion, by Fanny Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes

January 4th, 2014 by admin

The Jurdabralinskis’ gas station was nearly shuttered when all the area men joined up during WWII, but the family’s four girls bravely stepped up. Eldest daughter Fritzi was already a great mechanic, having been a professional stunt plane pilot in the 1930s. When Fritzi joins the WASPS, an elite but downplayed female branch of the U.S. Air Force, the story really comes to life. Flagg’s storytelling talent is on full display. Her trademark quirky characters are warm and realistic, and the narrative switches easily between the present and the past.

This photo is from his site, ain’t that cool! He’s taking his kids to car shows, and trying to get them interested! Bravo!

Here’s a quick excerpt from his blog:
“Daddy, let’s go work on the cars.” That is on the my top ten list of the best things a car guy can hear his kids say, and those were the words that began every day of the long 4th of July weekend. My 3 year old decided that she really wanted to work on the old cars, and I was happy to oblige.
