We’ve been in business for more than 50 years, and our reputation has grown through referrals from satisfied customers who believe that they receive an honest evaluation of their automobile issues.

We always treat YOU and your vehicle with special care, just like it was our own.

Gilbert’s Automotive was established in 1961 by Ross Gilbert. Since then, we’ve grown from a single car garage to a 3 bay facility with a parts department. Our experienced crew consists of 2 mechanics, who have worked together for more than 15 years. Their excellent work is reflected in their personal show and race cars.

Ross passed in 2014 but the tradition of quality workmanship at a fair price he set forth is carried on by the team of employees he assembled long ago. Ross was a national record holder back at US 30 Drag way and both Ross and his wife, Jerry, who held the title of Miss US 30 were inducted into the US 30 Drag Race Hall of Fame. He was an international champion in the classic car show circuit, and won “Best in Show” awards for both classic custom street cars and trucks.
