"Bee Man"

Joe is our building manager. He manages all things needing to be built (other than transmissions and enginges).
In his other life he runs 4 Seasons Apiary. Check it out! Buy some honey!!


"Rail-Riding Robby"

When this guy isn’t off sailing or hitching trains across the country he’s here at our shop fixing your cars. He hails from South Side but comes all the way to Northeast to do his dirty work.



Sara has been with us since her training at Newgate School. She brings a lot of skills to the shop! Her help with our Women’s Workshops and our Girl’s Inc interns has been extraordinary. Girls Rock!


"No Way"

Jose has been consistently busting out work at the shop since he’s started. He works the night shift and has the friendly smile to prove it!



With arms like tree limbs Charlie can test your battery and fill your tires in no time. He can also lift your 2007 Ford Taurus over his head with one arm.



We’re pretty sure Griffin comes from the Dirty South (Minneapolis). He’s got that Southsider look to him but don’t hold that against him! All are welcome in Northeast! He works hard and most importantly has a good attitude.


"Kustomizing Kid"

Brandon is here at 4am and stays til midnight, that is when he’s not racing motorbikes all over the country.



Rain garden? Check. Install a fence? Check. Landscape the parking lot? Check. Jon’s got you covered. He can handle just about any job and keeps the shop running super smooth and squeaky err… greasy(?) clean. He’s got the hardest job here, keeping this place tip top, and we are super grateful to have him!


"Owner of the BEST shop in Minneapolis"

Hi I’m Tim, “Turbo Tim”! I am the proud owner of Turbo Tim’s Anything Automotive. I love helping people get their cars fixed at a reasonable price. I try to educate owners about their cars so they can make good decisions that are beneficial to them and their vehicles. My goal is for customers driving out of my shop to feel good about their experience and enjoy driving their cars! My mechanics are great guys, we work well together and I consider them friends and family.

Despite my love of cars, commuting by bike to work is something I do whenever possible. I have a bird named Gwen, many cats: Pinto, Pig, Bobby and Stevie. I’m proud to work and live in Northeast with the girl of my life, Rachel and our baby girl Dosha Lee.

Drive safe out there and have fun!!!


"Turbo Rachel"

I am proud to be working for the Turbo Tim’s automotive team. I manage events, the website and social networking for Tim and the Anything Automotive crew (along with the boring behind the scenes business work). I have a tremendous amount of creative freedom with the advertising and website content for this growing business which is exciting and a lot of fun.

I’m so grateful to be living and working in the neighborhood I grew up in, Northeast Minneapolis.

In my free time I’m a graduate student at the University of MN in the sociology department. I keep myself busy gardening, biking, boating, and making salsa.

Without sounding desperate I encourage you to :FOLLOW US! LIKE US!

"Squeaky & Softy"

This dynamic duo has been doing their best to warm the laps of our beloved customers.

Sleeping in the automotive industry, these two list purring and paw curling as their fortes. These fully certified Shop Kitties have been working Turbo Tim’s waiting room for years.


"The Voice of Truth"

I live in St. Paul with a cat.  I like farming and summer outdoor activities. I’m going to start bee keeping soon and have enjoyed taking over the front desk at Anything Automotive.


"The Most Best"

Hey! I’m Brett. I haven’t worked at Turbo Tim’s for very long but so far I love it!! The other guys are great people to work with! I have been a mechanic for 8 years and graduated from Pine Tech in 2010.

I love working on all kinds of cars, the more difficult the better, just gives me more of a challenge and experience.

When I’m not working on cars I love to race cars and shoot guns.

Let’s fix that car!! 🙂


"Pro" "Super Dave"

I’m single and looking I like long walks by the beach and fast cars. I have been working on cars for a while and like kittens.
