Our History

Pusch Ridge Auto is run by two brothers, Jake and Jim Burris, who grew up in the neighborhood nearby hoping to one day open their own auto shop close to home.

Both Jake and Jim graduated from CDO High School and grew up on the Northwest side of Tucson, Arizona. They have worked in the automotive industry extensively and grown up with hobbies in the drag racing community. Jake’s first job was working for the Discount Tire directly across the street from Pusch Ridge Auto.

Family History

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.
