Who I Am

Bob Miarer, Auto Repair Shop Owner with the Best Mechanics, Fayetteville, NC

To get an idea of who I am, I have jotted down some things that I am involved with in the community and favorite activities.
I have always been interested in how things work…Usually fixing anything that breaks around the house…
My Dad was a mechanic and my grandfather a tool and die maker my ability to repair things must be in my genes!!
My wife has always called me…The Car Doctor…

From 1971 to 1974 my military career was in the 82nd Aviation Bn.
Worked 4 years in Management for The Spa Fitness Center.
In 1979 I realized my path was going to be in the automobile industry…
I started with managing a Dyco Fast Lube center, the first of the fast lube’s in Fayetteville.
Then Wilson Yarborough, Jr…. owner of Yarborough Motor Company hired me…. I started in sales, then was promoted to Used Car Manager… At that time we held many franchises. Volvo, Jaguar, Renault, British Leland, Triumph, AMC, and Avanti.
In 1985 I made the decision to move on, It was a hard decision leaving Mr. Yarborough. I was leaving a wonderful mentor and a fine family.
From 1985 to early 1988 I was in sales at Valley Auto World…. Valley held many franchises at that time. VW, BMW, Mazda, Saab, Mercedes Benz, Audi, and Porsche. Working for the Wyatt family was a honor.
In 1988… I was offered a position with Acura to manage used cars…. Three months after being hired they saw my potential in getting cars fixed…. I was offered the position of Service Manager…. I was Service Manager for 22 years…. My staff and I enjoyed many years of success, winning Precision Team awards and establishing a good reputation for excellent customer service.
September 2010 begins the next chapter in my life. The Dream of having my own Auto Service Business has begun!!
I know that the lord holds the keys to my success… This new opportunity is a thrill, and through the endeavors of my loyal friends and staff this new business venture will be a success.
I enjoy playing Pool with friends and family…
Living A Good Healthy Life and Keeping Fit have always been important to me…
I’m always ready for a good game of Basketball..
Inline skating was a sport that I enjoyed…I read that cross training with a bicycle was beneficial to help increase my endurance with skating…
I soon realized my passion for cycling…For the past 12 years I have been an active Cyclist…(racing…time trials and Criteriums)..
Now I am a USA Cycling Licensed Official…
Seven Years ago I helped start the Cross Creek Cycling Club…
I have been the Treasurer of C4 Cycling Club since the beginning….
Our club is very active with the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) on Fort Bragg …..
4 years ago I offered to take a Blind Soldier for a ride on my Tandem Bike….
I have enjoyed being the Captain of the tandem team for several Blind Soldiers…
This Partnership has taken us to many national Wounded Warrior Cycling Fund-raising events…
