Our Team

The number of years of experience of our team, if combined, would be sure to exceed 200 years. Our team finds satisfaction in being able to solve repair issues. Our long time techs help mentor and guide our newest techs who are just starting their professional automotive specialist career.

Owners: Clint and Jon

Jon and Clint grew up in the automotive industry since day one. They are the 4th generation in their family to own an auto repair shop. Their start in the industry came from working with the father at his shop which they also still own and manage with him. They grew up in Apple Valley and both now live in Lakeville with their families. You will not find owners of a business who care more about what they do and the customers that help to support the business. We look forward to serving Lakeville and the surrounding area for many years to come!
