Our Owner’s Passion for Auto Repair and Service
Charlie Chilson’s passion for cars began in his younger years when he started building race cars as a side interest in the 1960s. His interest in cars grew, and he decided to pursue auto repairs professionally as a mechanic in the 1970s. Charlie worked as a certified GM mechanic for many years. In 1979, he transitioned into the role of a service manager at a Toyota service center. After two years in this role, Charlie decided to step out on his own by founding Chilson’s Garage. Over the years, Charlie has progressively improved his knowledge and skills in auto repair, maintenance and even shop management so that he can continue to elevate the level of service that he and his team of certified mechanics provide.
