SMITHS CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A mechanic who specializes in rare cars has been convicted of tax crimes after a jury looked under the hood of his finances.

The verdict was returned Wednesday in Detroit federal court against Terry Myr of Smiths Creek in St. Clair County.

The government says Myr hasn’t filed a tax return or paid taxes for years and owes at least $200,000. He works on Ferrari cars and other classic autos and sold a Ferrari engine in 2009 for $610,000.

Myr was convicted of tax evasion and failure to file returns. In a court filing, his attorney says he acted in good faith, even if Myr’s belief about tax laws may have been wrong.

Myr will get his sentence on Aug. 25.
