About Us

 

It is safe to say I have always had a passion for automotive service. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon, in fact, more accurately I was born with a stainless wrench. As long as I can remember I have always loved cars.

Growing up, while other 8 year olds spent nights and weekends watching movies and playing video games, I would go to work on cars with my dad at his shop. I had a knack for seeking out broken parts off cars and fixing those parts. I suppose that I have always enjoyed taking cars and making them better.

My dad could see that my interest was more than just a passing stage and as I got older, so he would let me fix his customer’s cars as they would come into his shop. This passion grew as I was deciding what I wanted to do in during high school. Thanks to the example of my father, plus the gift of a humble shop space to use when I first began, I opened my first shop. I wasn’t your typical high school student since I was running a small business working nights and weekends. Soon I was able to buy a shop of my own and started Scott’s Auto Inc. in 1993, launching with only $200 in the bank.

My beginning has taught me that this really is a nation of opportunity. In time I have grown to appreciate how our business has evolved from working out of a temporary space as a in the early 1990’s to running a full service automotive business. From the very beginning, I have understood that although Scott’s is a car-business, in the end it really is a people-business. Scott’s has grown to become a very special and unique business, which wouldn’t be what it is if it weren’t for our wonderful customers, employees and family. Thank you for helping me make Scott’s Fort Collins Auto what it is today!
