MEET MASON AND PAUL

Behind the Team

MASON PACE

Mason holds an Associates in Automotive Mechanics, ASE certification, and a Bachelors from St. Mary’s University. After working abroad as a supervisor for the US Department of Defense and United States Air Force in Japan, Mason returned to Texas and has most recently been Volt Work Force Solution’s on-site and talent acquisition manager in Austin and San Antonio, Texas.

Mason founded La Mano Mechanical in 2013 — specializing in automotive and motorcycle service of all makes and models ranging from cosmetic refurbishing to full systems restoration. It was with La Mano that the dream of helping others locate their ideal car.

At the age of 15, Mason built a 1969 Camaro using only a shell purchased for $1200. Without a motor, transmission, interior, wheels or tires, he was able to build the Camaro from the ground up with his own two hands. It was then his love affair with cars began.

Passionate about the buying and selling of antique and vintage cars and motorcycles since the mid-90s, Mason is proud to combine his business skills and exceptional customer service with his 20+ years of automotive experience and technical background to co-found Pace Cars.
