From the Owner, Mark Showalter
“Having grown up in the car business and eventually managing a family dealership, I found myself at a crossroads on what I really wanted to do in life. I felt I was ready for a change that provided a more hands-on style of business, though I wasn't sure exactly what that was. Then, in early 2017, the opportunity to purchase Advanced Towing & Automotive became a possibility, which ultimately became a reality by August of 2017. My passion for automobiles and my fascination with heavy-duty trucks and wreckers gave me the push I needed to make this dream become a reality. I really enjoy not having the corporate structure that comes with working for an auto manufacturer and the freedom to provide customers with the products and services they truly need.
“My areas of expertise are performance and vehicle restoration. I wrench in my own garage every weekend on my own vehicles and, because I’m a Ford guy through and through, any project I have will be wearing the Blue Oval. I also like to do a little drag racing in the summer, when time allows. As a shop owner, I love meeting people and earning new customers and fleet accounts. I really enjoy the towing and recovery aspect of the business as well because no two tows are ever the same.
“I hope you give us the opportunity to earn your business and trust. Thank you!”
