Jim and Jake's family has been in the auto industry since the 1940s.
Fourth Generation Mechanics
Their great grandfather, Leo Toia, purchased a Shell Gas Station in 1948 and opened Leo’s Auto Supply off of Stone and Glenn. You may remember the tall Paul Bunyan statue, which still stands today!
Their grandfather, Don Toia, Leo’s son, took over in 1973 and that’s when Don’s Hot Rod Shop was born. Their father worked for Merle’s Automotive supply for over 20 years while Jim and Jake have worked on their own cars since childhood. Jim and Jake's mission is to continue to provide families in Tucson with the same quality customer service that they have received since the 1940’s.
