Jim Blatt, owner, and operator of Lee Myles Autocare + Transmissions in Parkersburg, West Virginia began repairing cars of all types at the age of 12 years old working alongside his father and grandfather. It didn’t take him long to become one of the best technicians in the area. At 18, Jim took a giant leap and opened his own Transmission and auto repair shop. Continuous training and the most up to date equipment is always important to Jim. To this day, Lee Myles of Parkersburg WV is the only center in the area that dyno tests their transmissions before it gets installed back in the customer's vehicle. That, along with customer service that is second to none, has kept Jim busy for nearly 50 years. When Jim is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife Judy, hunting, and collecting vintage Winchesters and Colts. One phone call at 304-428-6020 will get you in touch with the best automotive center in the area.
