Behind the Team
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.

Pace Cars in Stock
Pace Cars was instrumental in finding the custom Lexus of my dreams. Not only did they locate it in Louisiana, they went there personally to inspect the car and bring it back to my doorstep. I highly recommend working with Pace Cars.
Mason and Paul Pace were essential in helping me find the perfect vehicle, one that combined speed, comfort, reliability, good looks, a back seat and reasonable storage room. After helping me identify the vehicle that best suited my needs, they helped me save money on the purchase.
After my husband passed away, I found the car buying process extremely daunting. I wish I had known a service like Pace Cars offers existed. It would have saved me a lot of headaches! Mason helped me understand how to stay above the value of my car and trade in my vehicle for a newer model without having to go out of pocket. I highly recommend working with Pace Cars. I'd never buy or sell another car without them.
Admittedly, I am a car guy and when I wanted my next car, I thought to myself “What next?” I had already owned Mercedes, BMW, and many others in the same range. I finally settled on an Aston Martin DB9 and quickly realized I didn’t know much about them or how to find one that I could trust. This is when I decided to partner with Pace Cars. Pace Cars located a DB9 for me quickly, contacted the seller and previous dealership to verify the authenticity and service history of the car, handled the negotiations and delivery to my door for me from another city. Even through the Christmas Holiday, Pace Cars was working hard to ensure I got the best deal on the car that I wanted. Mason and Pace Cars made buying a car such as this worry free! I would recommend their service to anyone looking for a vehicle, from a supercar such as my new Aston, to your daily driver.
