Orville has always been interested in cars, ever since he was a child. He loved taking them apart and putting them back together again, trying to see how they worked. As he got older, his interest turned into a passion, and he decided to make a career out of it.He became an expert in car mechanics, and eventually opened his own garage. His business was successful, and he soon became known as one of the best mechanics in the area. He's helped many people keep their cars running smoothly, and they all appreciate his knowledge and expertise.
