DAYTON — When you want a job performed well, sometimes you need to do it yourself.
Ask Marc Trzeciak, a local hand surgeon — and something else besides.
Trzeciak found himself established in a practice in the Columbus area when he wanted to have his 1967 Chevrolet II Nova beefed up.
He knew enough about cars to know that the shop he approached for the job sought to overcharge him.
“They knew that they had a lot of people (customers) who had open wallets,” Trzeciak said. “I think if they thought about your car in the middle of the night, they charged you.”
This perturbed Trzeciak enough to consider opening his own restoration business, which he did first in Lowell, Ind., in 2004, then in Dayton in May 2006.
