Sam Zeitoun

Owner & Operator

This has been my dream since I first opened my doors in 1982 and repairing vehicles had been a longtime hobby of mine years before that. This great country, the hardworking Americans all throughout it, and the brave veterans who've fought to keep it safe inspire me everyday. I strive to provide the highest-quality parts and service to every single customer, alongside a smile and phenomenal customer service.
