Meet The Buck Family
Owner and Shop Manager
Jeffrey was born and raised in the Sacramento area and has had a passion for cars and repair from a very young age. Instead of getting in trouble for parties when his parents would go out of town as a teenager, he would get in trouble for taking engines out of their cars and rebuilding them in the backyard! He began his professional study under the instruction of Dave Burkhard through the Automotive Technology Program at Del Campo High School here in Carmichael and completed courses at American River College and other technical schools in the area. He was granted scholarships and internships and was mentored by renown shop owner Kevin Nelson of Service Outlet in Roseville. Jeffrey has worked for auto repair shops and Honda dealerships in Carmichael, Folsom, Roseville, Sacramento, and Reno, NV as a technician and has held managerial positions as well. He has also continued his education and training, earning his ASE Master Technician Certification, the highest ASE certification possible, along with other certifications and training completions including Factory Honda Training, certification of after-market advanced diagnostics, advanced testing and analysis of CAN communication systems, and technical training of factory and after-market vehicle scan tool application.
After a decade in the industry, Jeffrey has decided it’s time to open up the repair facility of his dreams and is excited to provide his hometown with high quality vehicle care. When he is not at the shop, he enjoys spending time with his wife and one year old son, playing billiards (a Hardtimes Billiards local!), hiking, and participating at his local church.
Joe is a true family man. He has been a successful business owner and a stay-at-home dad of three children, including Jeffrey. He has encouraged Jeffrey to pursue his dreams and to excel in the automotive industry. Born in Illinois, Carmichael has been Joe’s home since childhood. One of his after-school jobs was at Al’s Texaco right here in town! He has an extensive background in customer service, sales, and upper management, and is a crucial member of the Buck Family Team.
In his free time, Joe enjoys golf, serving as Youth Group Leader and Deacon at his church, football, and spending time with his wife, children, and grandson.
