Tim Mings

If you've ever owned and classic vehicle, you know that keeping one on the road requires a number of untold sacrifices. Of time, of money, and of parts cars.

What about operating a shop that caters only to one specific vintage model? Ask Tim Mings. As a devotee to the Honda N600 and the world's only full-time N600 mechanic, he's owned over 300 of the little hatchbacks and bought out a slew of new old stock inventory to keep as many of the cars on the road as possible. Currently, his collection include the very first Honda N600 sold on American shores: serial No. 1.

Mings says that if you own or have owned an N600 in the greater Los Angeles area, there's a good chance he either has worked on it or will work on it in the near future. We admire his devotion. Check out the quick clip of Mings' exploits below.
