Tech Garage Returns for Season 7
John Gardner, Chipola College Automotive Technology instructor, is returning for season 7 of "Tech Garage."
The show’s new season hits the small screen Saturday mornings on Discovery’s MotorTrend network. ASE master certified instructor John Gardner uses his high-octane teaching on all the automotive systems with the perfect blend of the hows and whys, along with DIY driveway tips. From the professional techs to the weekend warriors, "Tech Garage" has you covered.
This season incorporates a new segment called “Master Technician Tech Tip” #MTTT. "Tech Garage" also added master technicians to the show lineup, including Chipola’s own Josh Ellis, as well as a multitalented automotive journalist, Dave Dobson. "Tech Garage" is diving deeper this season with show topics the audience asked for: autonomous vehicles, all-wheel drive and, of course, diagnostics and repairs on a wide range of vehicles.
“It's amazing and humbling to look back at 2015 when I started the show at Chipola College," Gardner said. "I never thought it would grow into what it is today. We are fortunate to able to teach and demonstrate automotive systems on the coolest trainers on the planet. No other show is covering automotive systems in-depth like we do, garnering us a top spot on Saturday mornings."
The educational television show, "Tech Garage," began its seventh season on Jan. 2 on MotorTrend TV network, formerly Velocity.
Motor Trend Group is the largest automotive media company in the world, bringing together Discovery’s fast-growing MotorTrend Network, formerly Velocity, and a vast automotive digital, direct-to-consumer, social, and live event portfolio, including MotorTrend, Hot Rod, Roadkill, Automobile, and more than 20 other industry-leading brands.

“The business, industry, and education trifold is the way of the future," Gardner said. "It's a win-win for the automotive industry and helps our local panhandle area with economic development. This season we are bringing the audience into Jackson County with a new opening and scenic shots of landmarks throughout the show. I am excited about the new season more than ever, and I’m grateful to so many people who make this happen.”
