Our Story

Frank has lived in New England his whole life.  Born and raised in Ledyard, CT, he bought his first truck at the age of 16 – a 1978 International Scout.  Frank knew this was his passion, and owned three different trucks before heading off to college at the University of Maine in Orono.  While in college, Frank spent a large amount time buying, restoring, and then selling trucks.  (Frank was flipping trucks before “flipping houses” became mainstream.)  He graduated in 2002 with a degree in Sociology and a college sweetheart in tow.

After school Frank spent 12-years in the Automotive Sales industry. He fell in love with all things automotive.  Throughout his career, he learned all aspects of the business:  buying, selling, financing, detailing, repair, and even advertising. Frank created a loyal following of repeat customers, he was salesman of the month over 55 times and averaged over 200 units sold per year. .

Frank is now a proud resident of Brewer where he is happily married and raising two young daughters.  For Frank, family has always come first – he can often be seen around town walking his daughters to school and patiently waiting at dance class.
