    I am looking to hire 2 people for full time positions. I run a high end street rod/muscle car shop in Corona and I'm looking for 2 fabricators/repair techs that are driven to build one off high end street cars and have the ability to think on their own. You must be able to TIG weld basic materials like stainless, aluminum, and steel and if you can't, please know that it would greatly reduce your pay. I don't need someone that can only MIG weld because we don't fix trash cans or tractors at this shop. I need people that can fabricate, know electrical, and are not afraid of repair work and trouble shooting problems. We service, upgrade, and build/ restore, pre 1975 American made cars and also produce one off, very high end street rods and muscle cars. I can not stress enough the fact that I demand high quality work from my employees and feel that if you choose a profession, you should be able to produce a product like a professional. Pay depends on your skill set and the more skills you have, the more money I pay. If your interested, call me @ 951-273-9284 or my cell # is 951 833-5324. You can also stop by 6 days a week and check out the shop. MUST HAVE YOUR OWN TOOLS. Our website sucks but you can go to Barry's Speed Shop - Home of the SMC and look at some of the stuff we have done.

    Sorry if I sound like a dick but I don't like to sugar coat things and try to make people think this is not a serious job. I spend a lot of time bringing people up to the level we require and I don't want someone that is going to waste my time.

    It's real hard on the high end builds to get people to stick it out and so for the past 5 years, Barry and I do all the finish work. I have had many guys come and go over the past 8 years that I have been there and I know it's just the nature of the industry. The big problem is that just about the time I get someone to run on auto pilot, they think they know everything and start to get an attitude or feel they can do things they way they want to do it. Barry can be a hard guy to deal with at times but what the people that work for him need to understand, at the end of the day, like yourself Billy, it's his name on the finished product and not the employees and when things go wrong, the customer goes to the owner first and not the guy that did the work.

    Exactly....they need to understand that without that reputation they wouldn't have a job. Its not an easy way to make a living. And at the end of the day, your name & quality of work is everything.

    The show is still on but we haven't filmed in over 5 years and I'm glad because it was a big pain in the ass.

    I met Barry quite a few ears ago when he had a shop in Stanton next to Carl Fjastad's Deuce Frame Company. I've known Carl for over 20 years.

    Anyway, Barry has come a long way and seems to do very high quality work.

    I found that hiring good guys is the hardest part of running a shop. At best, it seems to be a short term deal as they want to leave and open their own shop if they are good. You hire a guy and spend years training them to do things the right way and then they leave. That's why I only work for myself now. I know a few other ex-shop owners that do the same. I'll work on a friends car now and then but only small stuff.

    Sam Foose (Chip's dad) is working in some little shop in Hemet but I don't know if he wants to drive to Corona. He lives in Canyon Lake and doesn't want to go to Huntington either so that's why he doesn't work with Chip. I'll mention it to him but he may be more cantankerous than Barry!

    Thanks for the offer on Sam but no need to let him know. I would rather have younger guys that want to do this for a living then an older guy that likes to do this as a hobby. I have worked on a Sam car and I can tell you first hand I wouldn't wish that head ache on anyone. I'm sure he's a nice guy and all but after what I saw what he did and how things were built, he wouldn't last long at my shop.

    Well, that certainly clears a few things up for me. I was wondering why he was working in that crappy little shop. I just figured because of who he was that he did good work and that he taught Chip. Never actually seen any of his cars other than in a magazine years ago.

    Good luck with your search. LA Roadster show is coming up, might be a good spot to find some talent.
