In 1984, Paul & Sheila Stock purchased Chuck’s Mobil, one of the last full-service gas stations in the Belleville area. With technology moving forward, literally everything was being moved up front with the exception of the rear brakes, shocks and muffler, we decided to become under hood specialists. Plus, we knew that the handwriting was on the wall as far as being a full-service gas station. With that in mind, we became, Stock’s Underhood Specialists.
In 1985, Kay Kraft joined us. She started out pumping gas and giving our many seniors a few minutes of her time. She grew with the business and eventually ran the company until 2006 when she passed away.
As we saw the phasing out of full-service gas become more about swift-lube services, we realized that no one was really paying much attention to what was going on under the hood. In 1986 we created Car Care P.M. a complete maintenance service.
