Bio

Autobahn Motors owner, Robert Weston, started tinkering with cars when he was very young. His father was an officer in the Second World War and his training included vehicle field service in case they had breakdowns. After the war, he always did his own servicing as a hobby. So at the ripe old age of ten, along side his dad, Robert learned how to replace spark plugs, adjust valves, set points and timing, even adjust carburetors. By nineteen he was pulling, stripping and rebuilding engines in the family garage.  Bitten by the bug, (or consumed by the disease, depending on who you ask) a career was born.  After a short time at a general repair shop, he caught the eye of a Porsche garage owner who took him aside and quietly offered him a job. No more encouragement was needed. Serving his apprenticeship under three German factory trained mechanics gave him not only a sense of pride in workmanship but also a real appreciation for a job well done. He didn’t get to work on the vehicles until he knew how they worked. Their motto was “If you fix it good, it’ll never come back”.

In July 1985 Autobahn Motors opened its doors in Markham. Almost 25 years later, many shops have come and gone but Autobahn Motors remains because…”If you fix it right, you only fix it once”…and fix them he does.
