The Mechanic

James Stewart has been fixing cars on 12th since June 1969. He is the owner of JT's Body and Paint Shop on 1202 Salina Street. He makes end meet by fixing totalled cars with clever welding and bodywork. While he said the neighborhood was much rougher when he started out, he also laments the businesses and homes that have been knocked down to make way to progress. He pointed out the empty lot across the street, which held a theater, and the homes down the street once lived in by his friends.
