Meet Bob Bastone

I’ve been taking my cars to Bastone Auto for 25 years. You want to go to an auto place you trust! Being located in a former church seems a nice touch.

Pennsylvania car inspection was due and the temporary registration I’d gotten online was about to expire Dec 2nd.

My goal’s to get a photo of the Bastone  brothers in front of their place.  I thought it would be a great addition to People at Work- Primarily Pittsburgh (show at Panza Gallery. July 2018)

As I was asking Bob about getting Jim and Frank to agree I said “here I’ll take a quick sample on the phone to remind you to ask them”



Bob is also an expert Amateur/Ham Radio operator  (licensed call sign is WC3O) and here’s an article

Skyview Radio Society News

If you need a speaker for your organization’s event, he’ll expound on all aspects of automotive service, repair and maintenance in his “I Hate Cars” tour.  His flyer says “hear the straight scoop from an ASE certified Master Mechanic with a lifetime of experience in the automotive repair and maintenance field”

Bob has a great sense of humor, too.

Thanks for letting me take your photo, Bob.

Please ask your brothers to make a time and I’ll be over with my real camera.

Oh and my car is happy, too.

  1. A mechanic who will speak to organizations- a wonderful idea!! I wonder if he knows anyone in my neck of the woods to present to the retired teachers ?

  2. It is so nice to have a mechanic you can trust = my dad was also a ham radio operator W3EIF – was his call He used to say “this is WILLIAM 3 EASY ITEM FOX on the air” I love when you help me bring back memories!

  3. A trust-worthy mechanic is worth his weight in gold. I would take my cars to Marty, a mechanic in Michigan during my visits home. There was never a reason to doubt his “diagnosis” nor “treatment” and his costs were lower than anything I could find here. I miss him.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
