Roush, Edelbrock, Chevrolet and More

Roush Engines

Combining engineering with racing, Roush founded Roush Performance Engineering in 1976 and began selling high-performance engine designs to the world of motorsports. His racing team's ability to win and a brilliant solution-oriented approach to building engines earned Roush a reputation associated with excellence.

Edelbrock Engines

Edelbrock engines are known for research and development, manufacturing, and state-of-the-art testing facilities. Racing enthusiasts have called the Edelbrock manufacturing approach "the most state-of-the-art" in the United States. Founder Vic Edelbrock Sr. bought his first project car, a 1932 Ford Roadster, and designed a specialty engine and intake manifold that instantly became a sensation in the world of "hot rods" and racing.

Chevrolet Engines

Chevrolet Performance began engineering high-performance crate engines 50 years ago and today continues to manufacture new horsepower focused engine designs with a distinctly American sound. Chevrolet offers full crate engine drop-in kits to help high-performance car drivers get back to leading the pack fast.

    Absolutely the best place to take your vehicle. They got my car in and fixed same day, with a free shuttle, friendly office folks, and a perfectly fixed car for a great price. This is the second car of mine I have trusted to Central Automotive, and I will trust every single car I own in the future to them as well. Thank you so much!

    Always willing go the extra mile for you, Vehicle has been fixed the first time and quickly and accurate every time. Mike the owner is extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and is willing to explain it to you in a way that makes sense. I don't see them adding in all this extra stuff many other shops need. Best place in town if you want to work with straight shooters.

    Everyone here was extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter and I felt very welcome and they took care of us in a timely fashion. They even recommended a place where I could purchase less expensive tires. I will be back! Thank you!

    I will not take my car anywhere else. They are trustworthy, fast, reliable, affordable, and they do not take advantage of you. They really value you here!

    Central Automotive is the only place I will go. Mike always finds time to fit me in no matter what the issue and keeps me and my fleet on the road. The team of mechanics can handle every situation from oil changes to full engine rebuilds and technical electrical issues. The staff is always friendly and most importantly honest. They understand my schedule and will even go pick up the cars or give me a loaner. Finding an automotive shop that you can trust is hard to find but I always get honest answers on what is worth fixing and what should wait and there is never unnecessary extras or running up the bill. 10 stars wasn't an option or they would get that.

    Knowledgeable, friendly, honest service. Will continue to visit for service. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle. They even gave me a lift home on the other side of town while doing my repairs. Great place, great people!

    My experience was amazing from the start. I called in about a nightmare of an oil leak. I was anticipating them being able to get me in by the afternoon at best, if not the next day, but Doc kindly answered the phone and told me to bring the car in as soon as I could. I brought it in an hour or two later, and they diagnosed the problem in ten minutes. Everyone was very communicative about the issue, and one member of the team even offered to give me a ride to work as it was going to take a couple of hours. Mike ensured that my car would be repaired by the end of the day, even with the several other projects already in line. It was just extremely refreshing to have honest, genuine, caring people providing top quality service. You can bet I'll be going there for my automotive needs from now on. Thank you!!
