As a toddler, Shane rode to preschool on a Harley gas tank, and he later became a family legend for regularly walking home after running his go cart out of gas. At 16, he & his Dad restored Shane's 1st car, a '70 Nova. Shane loves anything that puts him in the wind, as he believes in the healing power of "forced oxygen intake."
Following a 3 year apprenticeship in the 1990's at the former Nardozzi's Restorations in New Bern, NC, Shane has remained steadily employed in the automotive industry in SENC, working in both customs & collision. Shane has painted yachts, award winning motorcycles, countless passenger vehicles, tractor trailers, and even a helicopter. He is a competent bodyman and a pioneer of spray in bedliners. He is NCC's spray talent and its project director.
Steph first encountered the automotive enthusiast world when she met Shane in 2004, and she since has cultivated an appreciation for wind in her hair and for the camaraderie and goodwill of the car & mc communities. She has an eye for color and has been known to detail a car or serve as an extra set of hands.
Steph's backgrounds in small business management & customer service make her a good fit in her role as NCC's administrative talent; she manages the work calendar, writes estimates, keeps the lights on, helps with shop maintenance, and otherwise tries to keep things running smoothly. Steph takes great pride in delivering superior products, fully finished out and exact to customers' specifications.
Intern Skyler is a full time student in the Auto Customs & Metal Fab program at Cape Fear Community College. She has been furthering her education at NCC since fall 2017, when she solicited a position for herself and refused to be intimidated by hand stripping a Corvette down to fiberglass. She works all over the floor, principally hanging parts, detailing, and prepping, but she has done some spraying, and she can feel dents as well as many longtime bodymen. She helps maintain NCC's social media presence.
Sky first fell in love with cars while cruising with her Dad and blasting rock music in his Cadillac. After she & he tooled on some cars together, she decided to start pulling parts off her own Jeep, just because. She still likes rock music, she loves the beach, and she is a member of a local boxing club.
