Jeff: The Buyer
Jeff Allen is the owner at Flat 12 Gallery in Lubbock, Texas and his passion is buying, selling and retooling classic and exotic cars.
In his business, Jeff makes a gamble on each car – looking to buy low and sell high after his team fixes and flips the newest projects in the shop. Jeff has worked on cars for corporate leaders, celebrities and everyday car lovers, keeping a host of fine examples in his shop.
Flat 12 and Jeff also have an interesting business dynamic: one of the shop's key customers is Jeff's father, Tom Souter, who runs his own classic car dealership right around the corner. They are not just regular trading partners; they are trading partners hell-bent on one-upmanship.
For Jeff and his team the challenge is to buy a car, fix it and flip it for more cash, something that is never a sure thing in this market.
