About Mike and Sons Automotive, Inc.
The Mike and Sons Team
Owner and President
Mike has been a car enthusiast since an early age, watching his uncles and dad drag race. He has worked in the industry all his life. He loves the feeling of taking a car that isn’t running right and fixing the problem, and to watch the customer drive away happy and safe. He was first a technician at Paul’s Automotive in Midtown Sacramento starting in 1992, and he then became the owner in 2016. Mike is now taking his wealth of knowledge and determination to provide excellent customer service to the Downtown Sacramento area with Mike and Sons Automotive, which he named after his three sons: Jackson, Benjamin, and Jacob. Mike also wanted the shop name to convey how we just don’t do tires, the shop is here to serve all of your automotive needs. In his free time, Mike enjoys drag racing his 1972 Dodge Challenger, playing guitar, and spending time with his family.
You’ll find Camille in the office doing all of the behind the scenes work to keep the business running. She has a varied background in environmental policy, non-profits, and state government. She’s the one responsible for working to make the shop a little greener.

Quality Control Specialist
Jacob personally inspects every car that leaves the shop, making certain that the services performed meet the high standards of Mike and Sons Automotive. If something isn’t to Jacob’s specifications, he announces his concerns, loudly. Always smiling or laughing, he is a joy to work with.

Froylan was first a technician and then transitioned to service writing in 2018. Given his background as a technician, you’ll be confident that Froylan knows the ins and outs of your car when he’s working with you. He always ends each day with the satisfaction of knowing that he has helped people with one of the most important parts of their lives, their ability to drive to where they need to go. When he’s not at the shop, you’ll find him spending time with his family and two daughters.
Enrique did not start working on cars as a choice, but as a punishment from his mom. When he was a kid, his mother would send him to his uncle’s shop so that he would stay out of trouble. The penalty turned into a reward in that he found something that he loved and that would turn into his career. He enjoys everything about working on cars and learning new technology. In his free time, Enrique spends time with his wife and plays with his four dogs.
Mario Durazo, Jr.
Mario began working on cars through the California Job Corps program. He excelled at it so much that he attended the Sequoia Institute to continue his education and build on his experience. He is ASE certified in steering and suspension and Mario is considered THE go-to technician for alignments. When he’s not at the shop, he enjoys watching NASCAR and horse racing and spending time with friends and family.
Aaron has been working on cars since he was a kid. He watched his dad work on cars in their driveway and jumped right in. This interest became a profession, as he continued his automotive education by attending and graduating from Universal Technical Institute (UTI). He enjoys how being an automotive technician allows him to always be active. When he is not at Mike and Sons, he enjoys spending time with his family and three daughters.
