There was very little technology, tools were not electric but man powered. Communication was either face to face or by letter. Phones were not a regularity When parts had to be ordered, the mechanics would have to wait for them to arrive. | 1920's Mechanics

Mechanics worked in a freelance style, however some were actually hired to work in. a mechanic shop | Typical wrenches used by mechanics back then
4: In the 1940s the use of car lifts was introduced. This greatly helped mechanics work on cars from underneath instead of using other methods of getting under the car. | 1940s | Mechanics used the method of a type of hole under the car in order to work on it. This was a huge invention and has been innovated and used up to this day.

People were now being trained as mechanics and opening up their own garages. However schooling for mechanics was available as well.

11: 1980s | The 80's didn't have much of a change either. The car industry continued growing, advertising, and communications.
12: 1990s | http://repairtrust.com/hp_wordpress/wp-content/gallery/car-repair/auto-repair-service.jpg | The 90s people got degrees from technical schools and opened up their own garages.
