A lot has happened since I was polishing the wheels on the car shown below in the late 1960s, but the people who trained me then instilled a pride in the job, and an attention to detail that has stood me in good stead all over the world for well over 40 years. I resolve to give my best attention to all things relating to this company during the coming years, to uphold a high standard of work, to maintain honest and fair pricing and to relax and enjoy the journey. I hope to continue to have you there along with me.
Racing toward the future, there has been recent talks with possible investors and partners to enable growth and continuation at Autocar.

Relocation to the present facility on Country Club Road has certainly helped improve our product of quality Ferrari service, Lamborghini repair and Porsche maintenance. The extra space didn't stay empty for long, so we are now partnered up with The Car Vault here in Indy for more storage capacity. They offer a very secure and climate controlled option for storing that extra vehicle during the winter period.
If you know of any car club gatherings that may need 'something' to do, or 'someplace' to meet up, Autocar is available to host a tech session or morning coffee stop before a run. I would love to give a talk for the members, whether nostalgic or technical.
