Get to Know Us at Wade Bryant’s Auto Repair
Ryan started taking apart small household items at a young age. He was intrigued with the mechanics of anything that had moving parts. Regardless of whether something ran or not, he disassembled and re-assembled his projects many times. He soon graduated to larger things like televisions, appliances, and then cars. When Ryan was growing up, his grandfather had acres full of a little boy’s dream… broken pieces of scrap metal in the form of cars, trucks, lawnmowers and even an old school bus. Ryan was quickly drawn to things with motors—if it was for the lawn or the road it didn’t really matter; it, too, was begging to be taken apart. In that yard full of metal, he found a Volkswagen dune buggy. The VW belonged to his uncle and needed repair. Watching, and occasionally getting to help his uncle, spawned his enthusiasm for automobiles. As time went on Ryan had many opportunities to work on friends’ cars; sometimes family members would allow him to work on their vehicles as well. Naturally curious and with a mind for motors and machines, a mechanic was born.
