OVER 40 YEARS OF COMBINED AUTOMOTIVE EXPERIENCE!
Bullet Automotive specializes in big shop automotive know-how with a small-town vibe. Your car is a part of everything you do and finding someone you can trust is a top priority. Here at Bullet, we don’t want to just fix your car and send you on your way. Our goal is to be your mechanic for life. That’s why we are laser-focused on fully understanding what your car needs, fixing your car reliably every time and providing honest, excellent service.
Meet The Bridge Street Team
With a dyed-in-the-wool love of all things automotive since childhood (more likely since birth), and over 20 years of experience in the industry, our favorite Car Whisperer, Sean Corbin, is the Owner, Manager, and Lead Technician at Bullet Automotive. Sean has done everything there is to do in Automotive Repair, from turning wrenches to recruiting fleet services, service writing, store management, and providing oversight for multiple stores in the region--driving sales and increasing customer satisfaction, no matter his title.
He always loved automotive, but longed to open his own Automotive Repair Shop and create an environment where honesty and integrity were king, and where his customers felt like family. He birthed the Bullet Automotive vision and, since 2013, has devoted his mechanic skills, operations experience, sales ability, customer service knowledge and business acumen to making Bullet a different kind of automotive experience.
He and his wife, Stephanie, partner in life and in business, and he's got five great kids and nine grandchildren (whooooooo.... can you believe it?!?). Sean is a people person, which you definitely know if you've ever met him--he has truly never met a stranger--and the Bullet Automotive family grows every day. He has received multiple accolades for his quality of work, professionalism, courtesy, and just being an all around nice guy!
Jim is a almost a Colorado native--he's been here since 1973--and he has had a wrench in his hand since he can remember. His Dad owned a bicycle shop and Jim and his brother helped out regularly. He liked bike mechanics, but found a love for the automotive world quickly.
Jim's Dad raced cars. His brother raced cars. And? You got it, Jim was a drag racer, too! He also played in a rock and roll band called The Misfits and still owns 10 guitars, 3 amps, an electric piano and a Korg synthesizer. Jim is a patriot and served his country in the Vietnam War (thank you for your service, Jim... we will never forget!), and then spent 27 years as a civil engineer in a mining and geology firm (yep, mind like a steel trap, that one).
After his civil engineering days, Jim got into auto parts and has been using those gray cells to help customers along the Front Range get the right stuff for their vehicles ever since... over 20 years now. If you're doing the math, Jim's got a LOT of experience. But he tells us he doesn't work on steam engines.
He is a strong family man, too. He and his wife have been married for 42 years; they have 3 children, 6 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren.
If you've already talked to Jim, you know he's your go-to guy for understanding what's going on with your car, getting you on the schedule, ordering just the right parts for you (at the best price we can find), and so many other things around the shop we can't name them all. We sure are glad that Jim is part of the team and, if you haven't talked to him yet, you should give him a call!
Sean (the OTHER Sean) joined Bullet in July of 2020 and has been squaring us away on the technology front since day one. He recently graduated from being one of those "kids these days", so he knows his way around computers, tablets, cell phones and shiny new shop applications and is bringing all of our shop communication right into the Information Age. He considers himself a translator of sorts--from automotive technical to driver practical. He spent some time at Discount Tire before he came to Bullet, considers learning about modern and classic engines an American pass-time, and is a quick study, so he can tell you the contamination level of your brake fluid in parts per million AND he can explain why that matters. He really does have a true love of all things automotive and also of Dave Ramsey, so he enjoys finding ways to help our customers get their vehicles fixed right while still saving money.
He spent a year as a worship intern and, in his off time, he puts his drumming skills (been practicing since the 6th grade) to good use at local area churches. When he isn't researching speed modifications for his own car, or getting sushi (his favorite), he likes to get up before the chickens and lift weights (yep, we don't know why, either).
If you have the opportunity to stop into the Bridge Street location, he's the tall one in the front--the one with the youthful enthusiasm and the big smile. We're certain you'll be just as glad as we are that he joined the team.
Meet The Jessup Street Team
Elijah has spent his whole life around cars and is passionate about the aesthetic side of vehicle modification and maintenance. You might say he came by his love of automotive customization honestly, as those Car Whisperer genes were definitely passed down from Sean!
As a professional detailer, he enjoys making dirty cars look like new. We think he might be a little compulsive about ensuring that no area goes untouched... yep, even those tiny vents and the cup-holders in the way, way back. He also has some mad skills in the vinyl wrap department and is all about working with Bullet Automotive customers looking to customize their vehicles in new and exciting ways. He's having a blast applying Hexis Satin Pearl White and Avery Dennison Gloss Fun Purple to his Mazda Speed 3, but he's open to whatever color your heart desires... Carbon Fiber, anyone? And if you have had an encounter with Colorado hail storms, parking lot door mishaps, or minor fender benders, he is a certified Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) specialist, as well.
Eli is a people person, too. Just like his Dad, he's never met a stranger. So when you see him in the shop, introduce yourself and ask him how he can help with making your car look like new again or how he can get that Carbon Fiber wrap going on your trunk lid!
Bill's affinity for automotive started in Cherry Hill, New Jersey (just one Hill, not multiple Hills), when he got his first car--a 1976 Mustang Cobra II--and his buddy got a 1970 Mach 1. That summer, the two built a paint booth in the backyard, where they stripped and painted the Mach 1. Though environmental regs would prevent such entreprenuerial undertakings now, that get it done attitude is one of the many talents that made us happy to bring Bill aboard--that, and his obvious great taste in cars.
After high school, he worked for Ford as a technician and later joined the United States Marine Corps, where he served our great nation in southeast Asia. Bill worked in clandestine amphibeous operations with the Special Operations Training Group. Though we aren't sure exactly what that means (he could probably tell us, but then he'd have to kill us), we've always known he's a badass, and we are deeply grateful for his service.
Evidently clandestine amphibeous operations wasn't quite exciting enough, and he went on to join the LAPD where he served for nine years, including beach detail in Venice Beach. He has lots of great stories from his time in LA, but his favorite car-related story is about a high-speed chase on Thanksgiving Day that left engines hot and their turkey dinner cold (nope, nothing to do with a Ford Bronco...).
Bill moved to Colorado with his wife and young family for the lower cost of living (yes, that actually WAS a thing once upon a time) and eventually traded his police officer's uniform for a tool belt. He was killing it over in the remodeling and construction industry when we convinced him to come work for us. He brought his amazing sense of humor, mechanical aptitude, technical skill, Jersey accent, and attention to detail to the team and has been working hard to ensure that our customers are 100% satisfied with our work ever since. He's always been a servant-hearted guy and believes strongly in helping his fellow man (and woman). His favorite thing about being a part of the Bullet team (besides working with Sean, of course) is having the opportunity to get folks back on the road quickly and honestly.
He and his wife Julie are currently restoring a 1965 Mustang (told you... good taste!) and when he isn't at the shop playing with power tools he enjoys hunting, archery, and hanging out at the lake with his family. Next time you're in, ask him about some of his most amusing stories (he has a bunch) and thank him for his service.
Brandon joined the Bullet team full time in October of 2020, after graduating from Grand Canyon University with an Accounting degree. He's not new to Bullet, though. His experience goes back to the mobile days, before we opened the Bridge location, when he worked summers as a mechanic's apprentice. While he was hitting the books in Phoenix, he was still working for us part time helping with some behind the scenes fun. You have probably seen his handiwork on Facebook and Instagram as he has been (and continues to be) our resident Social Media guru. We were lucky enough to steal him away from a lucrative management career with a well-known parcel service and we immediately put him to work managing our Jessup location.
His love for automotive began when he was just a wee lad, with an addiction to Hot Wheels, both collecting and racing. If you've been to the shop, and if you've met Sean, you know that the collecting bug runs in the family! His interest really piqued when he got his first full-sized vehicle--a lifted 1998 Jeep Cherokee XJ that saw some great offroading and a little bit of mountain climbing. With his next car, a 1986 Fox Body Mustang, he got into the wild and wacky world of aftermarket parts and when he sold that (to Sean, of course), he picked up a cool 2007 turbocharged mazdaspeed 3 in red--equal parts law enforcement magnet and great modification opportunity (why no... no speed mods, why do you ask?).
Brandon brings his affinity for both the aesthetic and mechanical sides of automotive, as well as his hands-on mechanic experience, and is excited to be part of the Bullet team because he loves the small business/family atmosphere (yep, even working with his brother and his Dad). He's up for the daily challenge and thinks having a highly motivated team around him that's ready to tackle the toughest automotive issues (we don't call Sean "The Car Whisperer" for nothing) is a blast. He's also very focused on ensuring that all Bullet customers are treated fairly and honestly--he's committed to the vision of making every customer a customer for life.
If you stop in to the Jessup location, he'll be the one at the front with the heated jacket and the can-do attitude. If you have a chance, ask him about his tattoos and his favorite vegetable, cauliflower! He'd love to tell you about them!
