Austere minimalist transmission box. Note paintings of transmissions on front corners of buildings. Uncompromisingly nothing more than a building. Expecting something else from a transmission shop?

A mural and flowers can be found on the side of the building. Out back are vicious dogs that could easily eviscerate the junk-yard dogs of Alviso.

With the right paint job, this building could easily rival The Tech Museum of Innovation. A Bauhous masterpiece as it stands.
