While Pina cannot find the specific piping he needs for the Dodge Stealth, he decides to be resourceful and makes his own pipe for the car. He has to fuse together pieces of different pipes to make sure the pipe can fit perfectly under the car.
Pina's shop is also filled with little tools and parts, some in organized bins that are labeled some in English, some in Spanish. Other parts litter the floor and shelves.
Pina's shop also doubles as a classroom. He's been teaching classes for over a decade in his shops and at community colleges. He currently holds a position as an adjunct instructor at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Ill.
Pina also prides himself in his extensive knowledge of different cars and how to fix them. He constantly studies and reads up on the latest advancements in auto technology. His shop contains shelves and shelves of publications on auto repair.
In his shop, he teaches classes in both English and Spanish. He's educated countless pupils, some of whom are immigrants themselves looking to learn about a profession which provides a stable income and so they can use their knowledge at a chain auto repair shop or open a shop of their own like Pina did.
