Meet Ken and Joshua…

0501managerKen Laham serves as the manager for this shop. Ken began his automotive career in 1986 as a tow truck driver but quickly progressed into other areas becoming an ASE Certified Master Technician. He moved to the area in 2006 from Brockton, Massachusetts but the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots are still his teams. Maybe the local Bucs and Rays fans can twist his arm our way! Ken spends his relaxation time completing home remodeling projects and traveling.  He and his partner of over 10 years, Linda, have two grown children and two grandchildren.


Joshua Peaslee is the shop Service Assistant working alongside Ken Laham.  Joshua moved from Maine to Florida one month ago and brings with him over 10 years’ experience in the automotive industry.  Not only does he know his way around a car, but he also knows his way around a soccer field. He is an avid soccer player who played at the collegiate level as well as overseas in Germany.  It is no shock that he is used to being part of a team since he has thirteen siblings and an identical twin brother. When Joshua isn’t playing soccer, cheering on his favorite New England sports teams, or riding motorcycles you can find him relaxing at the beach with friends and family.


“You saved us over $1,000 when compared to Pep Boys estimates. I posted the savings on Facebook. Thanks!”

“I don’t think there is anyone better than Ken and Scott. They are wonderful, they know what they’re doing.”

A. Henry

“Not only great service, but Ken, the manager, is also a heartfelt people person. He could not find a used part and put in a new for the same price. Does not get any better! Thanks again Ken and Chris!”

D. Fowler

“Very friendly service. Offered discounts and even brought my car back to me at work. A++ ”

A. Widoff

“Refreshing in a not so trusting business (auto repair). There is not enough room here to tell you what a great job they recently did for me. Going forward, they have all my business.”

D. Fowler

“The store on Sligh-near 275 is fabulous!! Recommended to all my friends.”
