Voyage Dallas is a division of Voyage Media and is an online portal sharing the most interesting stories in Dallas. The stories they share help give the big city of Dallas a little bit of that small town community charm, where people know each other and their stories at a deeper, more personal level.
Barry Wilson was approached to share a little about his life and the story of how Wilson Auto Repair came to be. People in Texas love their classic cars and Wilson Auto Repair has made quite a name for itself in the Dallas area since opening in the early 1980s. These two facts made Wilson Auto Repair a perfect candidate for a Voyage Dallas interview.
The interview is extremely casual yet informative. Barry first gives details of his childhood in Oklahoma and his days spent at his grandfather’s Ford dealership where Barry learned his love for the automobile.
They move into questions about what it is like to turn a passion into a small business. Being an owner has its challenges and Barry explains how he has conquered these hurdles and kept his sense of humility. This quote from Barry pretty much sums up the type of person and small business owner he really is. “I remind my employees that life is not about being perfect. It is about being the very best version of yourself everyday.”
The interview continued on with more questions about the garage and the work that they do around the shop. Wilson Auto Repair now focuses solely on working on classic cars that date back to the 60’s-50’s-40’s-30’s. They strive to restore and repair older cars so that their customers can depend on it to start and run flawlessly so they can just cruise and enjoy their relaxing ride.
