Tim Dacus


Tim has owned Edgar’s Transmission since October of 2000. His mission is simple… treat customers as he would want to be treated, give them what they want, what they need, and build a lasting relationships. He never wants a customer just one time, but every time!

Tim began as an automotive technician at Firestone in 1990. He worked for Midway Ford Truck Center from late 1990 to 1996, before becoming a successful Snap-on Tool Franchise dealer from 1996 to 2000. After purchasing Edgar’s in 2000, he has worked to build a quality team to transform Edgar’s into one of the best transmission shops in Kansas City.

Hot Rod and Drag Race transmission building has become one of Tim’s specialties. Because of Tim’s “gearhead” nature, you’ll find a different classic car or Hot Rod in the shop every week. Outside of the shop, when Tim’s not spending time with family, he’s pounding the ¼ mile in his 1969 Mustang Mach 1 drag car, usually competing at nearby dragstrips.
