We began our love of the Mercedes-Benz in 1972 when we purchased a 280SEL 4.5. It was chocolate brown over bamboo leather. My mother really loved that car, enough that we bought another. Finally in 1974 we purchased a 220 diesel with 180,000 miles, drove it another 200 thousand miles and sold it for more than we paid! After that we were hooked. Owning several more Mercedes into 1980 we decided that the service bills we were paying at the "dealers" were too much. Everyone in our family was driving a Mercedes at the time and it seemed like we were always having something done. At the age of fifteen and with the help of my best friend Scot Severson and my father, we began buying Mercedes, fixing them up and selling them. This began out of my parents garage in St. Charles ILL. in 1981.
After some time with great success in servicing and selling these cars my mother and our neighbors decided that we needed a bigger place, both to save on wear and tear of the house but also to appease the neighbors that were tired of the traffic and all the cars parked down the drive. We began looking for a place to move our growing business. Finally in the spring of 1985 we rented the upstairs of a body shop in Bristol. There was another body shop downstairs and a drywall company in the front building. Some time went by and the body shop downstairs moved out and we moved in. The same went with the drywall company in the front building. Several thousand cars and 18 years later we have outgrown the buildings and surrounding property and are currently looking for another place in this area. We would like to move out onto Route 47 but for the meantime its just car after car after car. With personalized Sales and Service most of our customers feel right at home. Cookouts during the summer or donuts in the morning keep the customers coming back. Thanks for visiting our site and we welcome feedback on any aspect of our business! Thanks, JONATHAN
