Roger ran two of the highest volume stores in Wisconsin, one for Chrysler Corporation and one for Toyota. These stores did not get to be 2500 to 3000 vehicle a year stores by accident; they got there by satisfying customers with good service and good prices.  He is ready to answer any questions you may have related to our products in new vehicles, service and parts. He feels we have an exceptionally friendly, well qualified and professional staff that are all eager to make your shopping experience the best. In addition he has other talents, that being a former pilot and radio disc jockey.
