Frank further honed his skills while working with General Motors for eight years. Venturing out as a small business owner, Frank graduated from the Texas State Technical College as a Certified Mechanic and purchased his first auto repair facility in 1983. Ten years later, he opened Carhampt. Turning over management responsibility to Frank Jr., a 4th generation auto technician, Frank now oversees both facilities from Carhampt.
