About Us

Clyde McLaughlin and Chris McConnell formed the business in 1991 at a small location on Lee Street in Annapolis, Maryland.

In 1994, the business expanded and moved to our current location on McGuckian Street in Annapolis, Maryland. And we have grown to our present size with 9 bays at this 8,000 square foot location.

Originally we were geared to repair and maintain high-end European vehicles. We still specialize in European vehicles, but we also repair and maintain Domestic and Asian vehicles as well.

Clyde and Chris credit their success and growth to the level of attention they provided to each automobile that enters the shop, as well as to the experience and extensive training of our technicians. That tradition has continued under the new ownership of Rick Sharpe.
