V.J. and Tami McFarlin have taken their 20 years of work experience in the automotive industry to the next level and purchased their own garage. 307 Auto Repair LLC, located at 720 Winfield St., opened its doors on Feb. 1.
The McFarlins, once Newcastle High School sweethearts, jumped on the opportunity to purchase the business — previously known as Leighton’s Garage — after working there for a year.
“When I moved down here a year ago, people followed, and then since I’ve taken it over, more people have been showing up,” V.J. said.
