Scholls Ferry Automotive started as a two bay shop on the property of what is now Scholls Ferry Chevron. At that time it was owned and operated by Rhett Partie. In 1988 Rhett contacted Alpenrose about their vacant lot that sat on the corner of 92nd Avenue and Scholls Ferry Road. Rhett agreed to a long-term lease in exchange for Alpenrose building a state of the art five bay automotive shop. This was the beginning of Scholls Ferry Automotive. In 1989 Edwin Villegas, Rhett's manager and lead technician purchased the business from Rhett. Edwin operated Scholls Ferry Automotive until March of 2000 when he sold his business to Todd Grail to move to the warmer climate of California.

Todd Grail owned and operated Scholls Ferry Automotive until January of 2020. During his 20 years of ownership he spent tens of thousands of dollars updating the facility with the finest in computer diagnostic equipment for European, domestic and Asian vehicles, electronic lab scopes and stethoscopes for tracing noises, shorts and mystery problems others cannot find. He upgraded to 10,000lbs racks to lift even the heaviest fleet vehicles and large trucks.


January 1st, 2020 Todd decided less work and more golf was in order. He sold Scholls Ferry Automotive to Kris Weinbender. Kris started at Scholls Ferry Automotive in 1997 as a lube technician and has managed and operated the shop daily since 2001. You will still find Kris at the same service counter he has been at for the last 20 years, greeting customers, ordering parts and providing the quality service you have come to expect from Scholls Ferry Automotive.

Our senior technicians have been with us for 15+ and 20+ years respectively. If you are not aware, this is very uncommon stability in the automotive trade. We respect our clients and employees the same, creating and maintaining long term relationships with both. We pride ourselves on our training program for our junior technicians. Some of our past junior technicians have gone on to work at companies like infiniti, lexus and tesla to name a few.

These guys are some of the most knowledgeable folks around. I typically talk to Chris and he’s so honest and helpful it’s a huge relief when I’m worried about my old car. Couldn’t recommend more.
