If you’re looking to spruce up your old car or truck, we can help with that too. Take a look below to learn more about what we do at Specialty Automotive and see how we can help get you back on the road and enjoying your new ride. 

Our Specialties

We specialize in diagnosing a vehicle’s core problem so that we can provide correct and effective solutions that get you back in your vehicle and driving down the road as soon as possible. We understand how frustrating it can be to leave an auto repair shop only to find that your vehicle isn’t actually fixed. That’s why the experts at Specialty Automotive pride themselves on our ability to accurately diagnose a vehicle’s main issue early on. This will give us the knowledge we need to repair your vehicle and give you the best service possible.

Another specialty of ours is adding custom vehicle accessories and other additions. Whether you’re looking to bring your old hot rod to life or want to add off-roading accessories to your truck, we’ve got you covered. 


A great auto repair shop will have the knowledge and skill to take on any project. In order to gain that knowledge and perfect those skills, you need to have experience. Fortunately, the owner of Specialty Automotive, Richie Burr, has over 20 years of experience in the automotive repair industry. Our mechanics and technicians have the opportunity to learn from him and take his knowledge so that they can apply those methods in their own work. Whether you’re just getting a small repair done, or you’re in the process of transforming your vehicle into a whole new vehicle, you can trust the experts at Specialty Automotive to get it done, and get it done right. 


Another characteristic our shop has that makes us stand out from the rest is the amount of passion we have for working on cars and trucks. While other shops simply provide a service, we strive to provide solutions that will help you reach your ideal goal for your vehicle. We love being able to diagnose a problem, assess the best way to repair the problem, and see the entire repair process through until we’ve completely solved the issue. We jump at the opportunity to transform your vehicle into something you thought you could only dream of. Our love for creating unique and innovative solutions helps us provide our clients with the best quality services.
