Most people are proud that they can change a flat tire on their own, but what about those rare few who can take a car apart and put it back together again? Meet Edith. She works at Automotive Specialties in Longview, Texas. When it comes to Corvettes, they’ve got you covered. As I watched Edith go about her daily routine, I realized that being a mechanic is an art form. It takes knowledge, strength, creativity, and attention to detail. So many skill sets are required and your craft must be finely attuned. I have mad respect for anyone who is capable of fixing and restoring cars, but I’m even more impressed by Edith’s self-assured nature. She works in a man’s world, and yet she blows most of her contemporaries out of the water. She found what she loved and pushed herself to greatness.
