Norm Pinkerton

Whether your car repairs require a screwdriver or a computer mouse, Norm Pinkerton can take care of it. A lot of folks with ailing vintage models bring them to Norm, but he’s on top of the latest technological changes in automotives, too. “We’re a small garage in a big city,” he says. “The same guy who answers the phone will probably be working on your car.” Norm pretty much lives at the garage, and he’s been known to drive a repaired car home for its owner. What’s not to love? Norm’s Garage, 2227 Creighton, 429-7429
