Scott Bonnell is a car guy. He always has been.
“I just love cars. As a kid, I’ve always been into racing. I love cars and I love to work on cars. Although I don’t get to do that a whole lot now, it’s more of a management thing for me now,” said Bonnell.
He’s the owner of Bonnell’s Collision on West 26th Street in Erie.
He started off as a one man body shop in 1985. Today, he employs 74 in four locations. His employees spend their days putting wrecked cars and trucks, back together like new.
“I think the best part about it is when you see a car come in that’s wrecked and mangled, what’s nice about it is you can create it and bring it back just the way it was,” said auto body technician Pat Mancini.
