Alex began his working career as a mechanic and at the dealership level in the Pacific Northwest but eventually worked his way to becoming an Automotive Design Engineer at the technical headquarters of the largest Auto Manufacturer in Detroit. Books4cars began from his manual collection when a mechanic and was built up by Alex over many years of travelling the world as part of his engineering career. The book sales business was incorporated in March of 1997. As inventory and sales grew, Alex took leave from his engineering career to tend to book sales. After 16 years of fun in the automotive community of Detroit, Alex decided to move back to his roots in Seattle. The Columbia City Historic Business District was undergoing a revival with Art Galleries, Restaurants and other small businesses moving in. Within this stimulating environment a store location was found. Sales and Inventory have continued to grow as new books, manuals, friends, and partners, are added to the books4cars organization.
