Owner Emeritus: Orestes "JR" Triana
Orestes “JR” Triana has an extensive history in the automotive industry and is very active in the Dade County and the entire state of Florida auto repair community. JR comes from a long line of automotive technicians. His father, all of his uncles on his father’s side, and his grandfather’s brother were mechanics. He got his start in the industry at just seven years old when his father took to where he worked as the head mechanic at a Ford Dealership. From that early age, JR was hooked.
His first auto repair job came in 1976 when he was hired as the head of “Get Ready” for Kendall Toyota. On the side, he also serviced cars for private customers at his father’s shop. Then in 1982, he and his father bought Green’s Garage to carry on the legacy it had created.
