  • Greg O'Daniel
    General Manager & Owner

    My name is Greg O'Daniel. I was born in Evansville, and have been living in Fort Wayne since 1979. I am married to my lovely wife Laura and have three wonderful children: David, Allison and Thomas. I was born into the car business and have been involved from day one.
    In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors. I am becoming a pretty good amateur farmer planting food plots for the wildlife to enjoy. I also like to get out on the bike trails in Fort Wayne and see how these great trails are being developed.
    I pride myself in upholding only the highest ethics for our business. Our employees share in my same beliefs that honesty and integrity are the most important traits we must possess to be a successful business. My other pride is in our community service. In times that have been tough we have continued to support as many local community organizations as possible. Fort Wayne is a great community and if we all do our small part it will continue to grow and prosper.
