Manuel Dasilva has always been someone with a variety of interests. At a young age, Manuel Dasilva was always wanting to try out new activities and join every club at school. He played sports, enjoyed music, and most importantly, liked working on cars with his dad. This became his career when he was just a teenager. His dad was blown away by his passion for cars and his incredible work ethic, and recommended that he apprentice with a local repair shop in their hometown of Detroit. He soon became one of the go-to guys in the area for repairs because of his efficient work and wonderful customer service.
At the same time, Manuel Dasilva was enjoying many other activities. He played baseball for a minor league team connected to the Detroit Tigers. He still has a huge love of baseball and enjoys playing casual games whenever he can. He also loved music, and started working as a DJ as a young teenager. One of his friends from school DJed, and he followed him to one of his gigs and was hooked. He soon started booking his own events after learning the tricks of the trade.
By the time he was in his twenties, Dasilva wanted to start his own business. He was in New York attending a classic car convention when he found the most perfect warehouse space for a repair business, and he bought it outright and moved to Brooklyn. Local customers soon realized his talent and began bringing him their cars to fix. He specializes in classic car repair and restoration, and he now has clients from all over the east coast.
Additionally, he continued his DJ career, playing at many events throughout New York City. He recently retired from DJing to focus on his car repair career. In his free time, he collects his own classic cars, and he still loves to play sports. One of his biggest passions is darts, which he practices at home and also plays frequently at his neighborhood bar. He hopes to eventually expand his car repair practice to other locations throughout the city.
