Luis Lopez Sr. (pictured above) served in US Army during the height of the Cold War in Wildflecken, Germany. During his tour of duty, he serviced and repaired Army vehicles, keeping our troops going. This experience gave him the skills and satisfaction that lead him to continue servicing and fixing vehicles for others after being honorably discharged.

About Our Location: Around 1956, the Mobil Gas and automobile service station is pictured with a 1956 Oldsmobile and a 1956 Chevy gassed up and ready to hit the open road. The station offered services such as oil changes and mechanical repairs to local residents. The property retains its original gas pump-area riffing but no longer carries the flying Pegasus. Located at 2751 Fletcher Drive, the building has been adaptively reused and is currently the home of Luis Lopez Automotive.
