Testimonials

My husband and I were in Barry for the fall color drive when our wheel baring on our truck broke. Being an hour and a half from home we had no idea what to do so we stopped at the local Ford dealer who called Rob to see if he could help. Rob was closed as it was a Saturday but by the grace of God he and his wife were at their shop having a garage sale. He certainly could have said no but instead opened his shop and repaired our truck for us. Wonderful wonderful people!!
