Meet the Team
Robert Klein, Owner/Technician/Rebuilder
Robert has worked in the transmission industry for over 30 years. At age 8, he disassembled his first transmission (C6). At age 13, he built a Turbo 350 with the assistance of his Dad. Since then he worked for his family’s businesses, remanufacturing torque converters, and rebuilding transmissions. Ever since moving to NC in 1996, he has grown in the industry and connecting with his passion for helping people fix their vehicles the right way.
He moved to NC, following his soon to be wife, because he wanted a fresh start. Growing up in NY, NC was a nice change. The weather is warmer for longer during the year, so he can ride his motorcycle for many more months of the year. He also enjoys heading to WDW in FL for vacations with his wife and sometimes his 2 nieces, which he adores all 3 of them. He worked for Ralph Smith at Cottman of Garner, NC for over 10 years, continuing to build his reputation. Learning all he could from Ralph until he “retired” from the transmission industry in 2011. In 2011 he opened RK Trans & Auto Repair, Inc to bring his knowledge and love for the automotive trade to all. They are now well on their way, trying to reach all that need assistance with their vehicles.
Lee is 51 years old. He was raised in the North but transplanted to NC in 1994. He is married to the love of his life; has two children and is papaw to five grandchildren. He has been in automotive repair for 35 years now. He has enjoyed golfing over the years and fishing. Now that he is an old fart, Lee enjoys his recliner and video games. Is this enough?
Lee owned his own transmission auto shop for 16 years. He has a best friend, a rottweiler named Herzog. He is also daddy to Daisy, a rat terrier and the two newest additions, Ratchet and Socket. They are little fat kitties. Don't you just love the names of the kitties, Lee named them. What else would you expect from a mechanic?
