Hill goes it alone at Wyatt’s Auto Repair

IRON RIVER—For Wyatt Hill, the risk has already been taken. Now, he’s hoping and working for the reward.
Last October, Hill purchased the former Anderson Service automotive shop after owner-operator Steve Zorzin died in September. Five months later, Hill has reopened the shop, named it Wyatt’s Automotive and fired up the engine on his dream.
“When I first started the mechanic stuff and decided to go to school to learn more about it, my whole plan was to have a place of my own,” said the 28-year old Hill, who opened his full-service auto repair center during the first week of March.
