Atlas Automotive started in the fall of 1998 but automotive repair experience started in childhood. Owner Rick Mabrey’s dad, an Army Master Chief in charge of the overseas vehicle fleet, passed on his knowledge to his sons.
After retiring from the Army at the ripe old age of 38, Lloyd Mabrey, Sr. (aka as “Slew” or “Papaw”) opened up a service station at which his sons were employed. Now he is learning all the “new-fangled stuff” from his son, and is a permanent fixture in the bay at the age of 84! Simone, Rick’s mom, can be found behind the counter most days, too!
