Meet the team members ready to serve you at Performance Tune!
Mike Davidson, Service Manager
Mike Davidson grew up along the front range of Colorado, where he has worked in the auto service industry for over 30 years. You might recognize his friendly face from The Tire Shop, which Mike owned, All-Tech Automotive or H&R Automotive.
Mike and his wife Christine enjoy a beautiful view of Ft Collins from their wonderful home above Horsetooth Reservoir. They have two grown children who also live in the Fort Collins area.
Mike has a profound love of Pontiacs; there are three in the family! His favorite is his 1968 Firebird, which originally belonged to his father. However, you are more likely to see him around town in his black Grand Am… definitely the cleanest and shiniest one in town.
