Brothers Scott and Ken Adkins have bought a 5,100-square-foot commercial building in Spokane Valley, where they plan to open on July 1 an automotive service center to be called Quantum Mechanics LLC.
Quantum Mechanics will specialize in servicing 1960s-era muscle cars, Scott Adkins says.
"It's a passion of ours," says Adkins, adding that he owns a few classic street-rod cars and trucks.
The shop site is the former Midas Auto Service Experts location at 10415 E. Sprague.
Commercial agents Mike King, of Spokane-based NAI Black, and Sam Morse, of Cantu Commercial Properties LLC., of Spokane Valley, handled the real estate transaction.
Adkins is employed in the banking business, and he says his brother will be general manager of the shop. Quantum Mechanics plans to hire three other service technicians, he says.
Adkins says he was born and raised in the Spokane area and owned a general-service automotive shop in Provo, Utah, from 1998 to 2001 before returning here. He says he and his brother collectively have 25 years of experience in automotive services.
