Leo Smith is an automotive technician here at College Chevrolet Buick. He is from (and currently lives in) Marshall, Michigan and spent some time studying at Lincoln Tech (DADC) in Denver, Colorado. Leo is newer to our team, he started in September just last year. Although he is newer to us, he has been in the automotive industry for 13 years.
Leo’s dream car is a Factory Five GTM because you build it yourself so you can make it exactly how you want. He also likes the fact that it’s powered by the Chevy LS1. When not at work, you’ll find Leo camping, cycling, single board computing, python programming, and watching comedy shows. His favorite recent television show is Mr. Robot, but his all-time favorite is The Eric Andre Show.
Currently, Leo drives a Mercury Milan. He would like to mention that the Milan was featured in Jalopnik’s “Meh Car Monday“. His favorite car he’s ever owned was a Mazda Rx7 Turbo 2, he also says that this car was his most unreliable. His favorite Chevy model is the Camaro ZL1, but says that his personality most resembles a Subaru Forester because he is reliable.
Leo enjoys working in our service department because he likes to diagnose tricky problems. He feels rewarded when he completes a diagnosis. The next time your vehicle needs serviced, rest assured that Leo will be ready to help!
