Owner History

Howard Forbes has been in the automotive repair industry for over 25 years. He started out working in 1981 for an independent repair facility that specialized in carburetor repairs. He loved working on automobiles and made a decision to go to Automotive Training Institute to further his career. In 1984, Howard went to work for Bruce Flournoy Ford . Although the name changed several times he continued to work at the facility for 20 years. He became an ASE master technician in 1988 and a Ford Senior Master technician in 2000.

In 2001, Howard competed in the Ultimate Master Technician Challenge . He was named the # 1 technician in the 5 state region. He also competed in a national event where he was named # 11 technician in the nation.

After working for a customer oriented dealership, he decided to pursue his lifelong dream of owning an independent repair facility that focused on customer service. Howard feels the key to having a successful business is to treat every vehicle like it's our own and every customer like family.
