Before becoming president of 1A Auto in 1999, Richard Green was a trained aerospace engineer. He uses the quality-assurance techniques he learned from aerospace to oversee the consistent quality of 1A Auto's parts.

Mike is a car enthusiast and co-founder of 1A Auto. He has created hundreds of instructional videos, that can be seen on our website or YouTube, to help customers install auto parts. Mike completed his first auto-restoration project, a 1964 Pontiac GTO, at age 14. Look for Mike at New England Dragway running the 'Tired Indian' 1966 GTO or, on a nice day driving with his wife and two daughters in their '66 Pontiac Ventura. Mike is a family-oriented person who enjoys tinkering with any engine-driven vehicle - whether it flies, drives or floats! He also enjoys that 1A Auto helps thousands of people solve their transportation problems.

He has been in the automotive industry for 25 years, at 1A Auto for two years, and started working in his dad's auto body shop at the age of 10. Growing up as the son of an auto body man (and a Ford guy), he has become a 79-93 Ford Mustang Restoration specialist.

Jeremy has an automotive degree and spent two years as an ASE certified technician at a local Cadillac dealer.

He also has heavily modified his 1988 Honda Hawk GT as well as a Dodge Ram 50 Truck with a turbocharged 4G63 Mitsubishi Eclipse motor. Jeremy is a gearhead to the full extent, and it would be a miracle if you own a car that he can't identify. Jeremy's custom work with fiberglass and metal fabrication has set him on fire more than once, but has not doused his passion to know everything there is to know about cars.
Bob has worked at 1A Auto since 2002 and has been working on cars since he was seven, when his dad let him help repair stock cars and motorcycles. As a teenager, Bob got his first car, a 1967 Pontiac GTO that he restored to showroom condition. Bob obtained his BS in Mechanical Engineering at UMASS Amherst, and his education, in addition to salvage yard experience, over 20 years with interchange systems, and 39 years of extensive hands on experience, makes him an expert in the field of determining fits and quality of parts. As a Senior Product Specialist at 1A Auto, his skills make him unmatched in his ability to provide the highest quality parts for our customers. When not at work, Bob likes to spend his time restoring his 1969 Ram Air IV GTO Judge.
