Len Harrison has a garage any guy would envy. It’s filled with tools.

"My wife says if I don't clean this out when I die, she's going to bring me back to clean it out," Harrison joked.

Len is an 89-year-old mechanic who understands cars, and he understands the people who drive them.

He senses when folks need help.

Mark Feathers nominated Len for Pay It Forward.

"People would come in who had problems and couldn't pay, and what have you, and he'd fix their car," Feathers said.

Harrison would fix them for free.

"He's one of the few people I've known who've always done for people and never expected anything in return," Feathers said.

Len Harrison learned to work on cars because his family was too poor to take their family vehicle to a shop.

That knowledge would also have him working on one of our nation’s most top-secret projects as you’ll see as we “Pay It Forward.”

Pay It 4Ward is sponsored by First Fidelity Bank.
