Stan Grippin was born and raised in Brush, only leaving the state to complete his automotive training at Bailey Technical School in St. Louis in late 1964 and early 1965. He and Dixie started the Mac Tools business in 1973. It was a family business, quickly becoming a passion for all four Grippins. He did not just have customers, but friends in cities across the Eastern Plains of Colorado. He turned over his tool route in 2018 but continued his professional relationships across the Eastern plains until his passing last year. During his travels he frequently found great deals on automobiles and parts! He loved fast, classic cars and project cars, too. During the summers he was often found at car shows with his 1957 Corvette, The Hammer or his 1959 El Camino. He was frequently spotted driving his 1970 Dodge Sweptline around town! In 2006 he bought his first dwarf race car and in 2010 Alex Amen joined his racing team. Alex and his new wife, Sheyenne spent many hours with Stan! They spent many weekends at I-76 raceway in addition to other tracks. His legacy lives on in hearts and cars, in homes and auto shops across the states.
