Just a year and a half after opening its doors, well-known Southern California diesel repair house OC Diesel Shop celebrated its booming business with a party for its customers this past weekend.
“We started in 2008, and since then we’ve had to double the size of our garage,” said Bud Anderson, OC Diesel’s founder. “The party was a chance to give back to our customers. It’s some good news in a down economy.”
More than 400 people attended the event, which included a portable dyno where high-powered oil burners showed off tons of horsepower and torque. Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram, Ford F-Series Super Duty and GMC Sierra owners all had a good time.
OC Diesel has five mechanics that specialize in Cummins, Duramax and Power Stroke engines. The shop is in Mission Viejo, Calif., and it’s worth checking out if you have a diesel repair need for your heavy-duty pickup or if you want to add more power with an aftermarket mod.
