Building a Legacy
Our dealer principle, Bruce Brubaker Jr., is a native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and has sold cars since the 1970s, when he was still a pitcher in Major League Baseball! He moved to Lexington in the ‘80s to work as General Manager for Paul Miller and the rest is history! Since Bruce Brubaker opened acquired a local Owensboro dealership in 1990, we've steadily grown to one of the premier dealerships in Kentucky, regardless of brand! We've won the Ford and Lincoln President’s award as well as the Online Customer review Dealer of the Year Award for the state of Kentucky, which demonstrates our ability to effectively serve our customers on a day-in day-out basis. In 2000, the dealership moved from its long time location at Fourth and Frederica to its current site on Southtown Boulevard at JR Miller Boulevard. Brubaker says the dealership owes that success to what he labeled "The Champion Experience." People are waited on promptly by a friendly sales staff, treated with respect and not subjected to pressure tactics.
