Dave Anderson, Owner of Anderson Auto BodyDave Anderson - Dave was born in a small village, Salcimi, close to the Black Sea in Romania. He grew up with the aspiration of moving to the States, and living the American Dream. At an early age he began working on cars alongside his father and older brothers.

At age 17, he enrolled in an auto repair school in Romania for two years, where he was trained in both automotive and mechanical repairs. He worked as a truck driver until the age of 20, before joining the military, where he served 18 months. At age 22, Dave defected from Romania, escaping the harsh times of the communist regime of Dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, landing himself in Austria at a refugee camp.

Though times were tough, being without his family and friends, he never lost hope, never lost faith. He learned from an early age that hard work and honesty gets you a long way. The US Embassy in Vienna granted him political asylum, and at age 23 he moved to Portland, Oregon. Once he became a bit established, with his feet on the ground, he began buying and fixing up cars. - Learn More
