Owners Terry and Margret Keller

In 1970, Margret and Terry Keller left their roots in the little farming town of Manti, Utah, where Terry had learned to work on his father’s farm.

After two years of automotive studies in Junior College, they moved to Littleton, Colorado, and began their family while Terry worked on developing a career at Southglenn Texaco. Terry served his customers as an apprentice mechanic at night and studied at Denver Automotive and Diesel College during the day for the next year and a half.

In 1974, he became one of the first and one of the youngest mechanics in the country to receive the Certified General Mechanic (Master Technician) Certification. Upon graduation from school, he served in the United States Marine Corps.
