Owner Randy Dagel at 15 years old with the very first vehicle
he owned and built – a 1936 Chevrolet Pickup
“I put in a 283 Cubic Inch engine, 3 speed stick transmission and rear axle and drive train that was cannibalized out of a totaled out 1957 Chevy Bel-Air, and was driving the gravel back roads of Northwest Iowa way before I ever had a drivers license”.
In the background is his “first garage”, which was actually an old chicken coop that he drug home on telephone pole skids from a neighbors farm homestead.
It was shorty thereafter that Randy entered auto body and paint classes at Northwest Iowa Technical School – now renamed Northwest Iowa Community College.
Forty years later, Randy Dagel is still repairing collision-damaged cars, however the shop he now owns and operates is the cleanest, most professional state-of-the-art repair facility in the State of Oregon.

The minute I told my insurance that I wanted Lents to repair my car they said "GOOD - they are the best to work with - they also have a GREEN shop"
I am so pleased about that and I also think you're the best!" Thanks Again

I want to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the outstanding work you performed on my 2003 Suzuki XL-7. When my car was returned to me it looked brand new and even my mechanic said did not look like the car had ever been in an accident.
Thank you for your excellent customer services and exceptional work!
Quick note to say thank you so much for the fine work on my car -- it's beautiful! The detailing was beyond what I was thinking (a surprise!) Thank you so much.
