Meet our crew and see what makes them tick


The owner of Manlius Motor Works. Brian loves his work. While not working he likes thinking about work. Aside from automotive work, Brian is very talented at eating spicy food and enjoys sampling craft beer. In his free time Brian can be spotted competing on racetracks throughout the Northeast in a car that can’t seem to break the speed limit.


Sarah has been around cars her whole life. As soon as she was able to drive she started delivering parts to MMW. Now she orders the parts along with keeping our shop in order. Sarah was professionally trained in the culinary arts. She loves to cook for her family on Sundays and often makes extra to feed our crew on Mondays. We love her Kraft Mac and Cheese because she mixes in those delicious little cocktail weenies. Sarah also enjoys dressing like Jack LaLanne and wearing shoes that hurt her feet. Every Friday, after a long, tough week of work, Sarah [AKA Cinderella] can be heard saying “I’m going to Disneyland!”


In his spare time Travis enjoys hunting chipmunks. He also loves screaming children and talking to people while they are on the phone. When not riding his Harley Travis can be found eating pickled herring in his hammock. He also loves bragging about how fast his Firebird will be when complete in 2068.


Has been in the automotive universe forever. Scott was at the table when the wheel was invented. He used to maintain Fred Flinstone’s roadster. Scott has been with MMW since MMW has had employees. In his spare time enjoys damaging his hearing with his custom built guitar amplifiers, and trying to get old British motorcycles to stop leaking oil. Scott has proven that man can live on pretzels alone.


Layton came to us from a Siberian circus where he was the strong man. Tired of being paid in bear paws, marinated, fried and stewed, he interviewed at Manlius Motor Works. We immediately found room for him in Bay number one, where he can remove lug nuts without the use of power tools and is routinely called upon to lift engines and transmissions out to be repaired. We gladly pay him in McDonald’s hamburgers on Tuesdays. His favorite holiday is National French Fry Day but he celebrates daily at noon. Recently has switched from drinking three to four Redbulls a day to a much healthier five or six Mountain Dews. Plans one day to install a turbo the size of a beach ball in his Subaru in hopes of twisting his axles in knots.


Is the keeper of all things MMW. Makes sure Khoa has eaten lunch daily and at a decent hour. Monitors parking lot speed limit of 3mph. Makes sure Tula and Mae have many treats daily, that they are clean and hair looks good. If you are spotted using a tool incorrectly you will find welts on your backside from a rubber fuel hose. Keeps MMW green by recycling all paper and plastic… and drinking as much waste oil as possible.


Tula’s job is to protect the shop and grounds. She may look tough from behind the gate. But she’s really just a sweetheart.


Mae is the brains behind the operation. Any important decisions come directly from her.
