Jeff Rowe - Owner

Jeff has always had a passion for German cars and enjoyed working on and restoring cars from a young age. While Jeff attended graduate school, he worked as an automotive technician for the previous owner, Graf Balda. Many years later, when ready to pursue his dream of owning a European automotive shop, he contacted Graf to ask for some guidance. Little did he know that Graf was wanting to retire and sell the business, presenting a serendipitous opportunity for both of them. Jeff purchased the shop and took ownership in August of 2021 and loves his job everyday.

"Probably the nicest guys in town, they deserve your business! They are extremely generous with their time and easy to work with. They basically recommended me not to do the work in the end because my car is old (2000 C230 Mercedes Compressor ) wasn't worth as much. It was against their self interest to do so but it was the best decision for me. I will 100% go back to them."
