About Us

Established in 1983


Dennis George, Owner

Dennis George began working on cars in 1971 at a car dealership in Ridgecrest called Bookout Toyota at the location where the Enterprise Car Rental store is now. Bookout changed to Sierra Toyota and was poorly managed and went out of business. Bud Eyre picked up the Toyota franchise and Dennis started working there in 1975-76. The next Shop was Nelsons Automotive located at the Abbey Carpet warehouse at the Upjohn and China Lake intersection. Carl Nelson then sold the business to Dennis and Robert Pearl and they called it B&D Auto Clinic. Dennis Then branched out on his own to the current location on Ridgecrest Boulevard.

Because of the Toyota Connection Dennis has always specialized in Asian cars, and still does today. We do not exclude our customers with domestic and European vehicles and gladly welcome them today. The line has blurred today with regards to country of origin as car makers go global.
