Carmine Vano came to the United States
at the age of 17 from Italy. He began as a mechanic at Foreign
Motors West. He then partnered up with a fellow mechanic to open
a garage in Brighton, Mass named European Car Doctors. Working
long days, sometimes even through the night, ECD acquired a loyal
clientele. The company then moved into Boston where it is still
located today, across from Fenway Park.
Alongside Carmine are his daughter,
Diana and son Dan. Diana and Dan started coming to the garage
with their father at a very young age. Every Saturday they would
clean the garage, and as the years went on both got very interested
in cars and started to learn about them. Now as adults you will
find Diana in the office at European Car Doctors. And as for
Dan, with the guidance/knowledge from his dad, he has become
a very good mechanic.
Carmine is known for finding and
fixing unusual problems with cars. He does not give up - he will
spend days and days on a problem, thinking it through and testing
until he's resolved the particular issue. He has put forth this
determination on his children so that they can strive to give
their customers the best service they can possibly offer. From
tires to timing belts they are committed to their customers.
Besides being a master mechanic and
businessman, Carmine has many hobbies. He makes his own wine,
proscuitto and sausages. All of these are featured on our annual
Christmas party's menu. Among these hobbies he also enjoys tending
to his pets, his rooster Ricky, 3yr old conure George, his iguana
Godzilla and his rabbits.
