About Us

A Passion for Mechanics

Auto mechanic and business owner John Chapman was interested in cars since he was a young boy. He worked on his first car when he was twelve and never stopped after that. He spent seven years in the military working on military vehicles. When John finished serving, he started doing auto repair in his uncle’s garage. In 1997, he decided to open his own auto repair garage. Add all those years of practical experience together, and it comes out to a total of over 35 years’ experience as a mechanic. In addition, John’s fellow mechanic at the shop has over twenty years of experience, nearly all of them at Chapman Automotive. The team is rounded out by a third member, John’s daughter.

John Chapman’s love for cars extends into his free time, as well. For the last 17 years, he has raced an Outlaw Super Late Model at Kalamazoo Speedway. In addition to being the driver, he acts as crew chief. He views this as another way to connect with his customers.
