Paul Dice

Paul Dice - Service Manager

ASE Master technician / Ase certified consultant

Paul has been with Walt’s Auto Service for over 23 years and counting. Once when Paul was working on a truck at Walt’s, he saw bright little eyes peeking back at him inside a fender well; it was a little black kitten. When he fished it out of the fender and bathed it, he discovered that Yukon is, in fact, a white and orange kitty and is a happy family member of the Dice family. Paul’s favorite food is Sushi, and he believes that stock cars are the best modification because they can be fixed without breaking. He loves making customers’ days and enjoys surprising them by using the nicknames of customers’ cars when they come into the shop. Paul loves model railroading and is the current vice president of engineering in the Belmont Shore Model Railroad Club in San Pedro in the angel’s gate park. The BSMRC has been around for 50 years and is said to have the most extensive N-scale layout on the entire west coast. His favorite pastime is keeping these trains running, and we think that is so cool! Check out their website at https://belmontshorerr.com/ for more information.
