Founder Dale Wilkens has been in the auto repair industry for his whole adult life. After serving as a Motor Sergeant in the US Military, he moved to Independence to work at a Lincoln dealership. In the early ‘80s, during a recession that saw the closure of many dealerships in the area, Dale decided to open up shop. Since then, The Car Shop has established itself as a pillar in the local community, providing honest, high-quality services day in and day out.
