Everyone loves a classic vehicle, including us! 

Many of us love classic cars. Maybe they are reminders of “the good ole days,” or what we perceive as better, less stressful times. Maybe we associate the classics with family trips to the beach, mountains, or just driving around with friends. Did you ever cruise around Main Street or a local drive-in restaurant? We believe for all those reasons and more, we need to help keep the classics around and running well. You certainly don’t want to miss out on the looks and smiles you receive driving one of these old treasures. It is priceless. You might be wondering what classifies a vehicle as a classic? For insurance and registration purposes, the age of a classic car, in most cases, is at least 20 years old but not more than 40 years old. We are proud to have worked on a few of the classics this past year, so they can keep running like new! We want to keep everyone smiling, and this year we needed some smiles!

Whether a classic, diesel, hybrid, or your family vehicle, Bret’s Autoworks is ready to take care of all makes and models. We are here to help the people who drive them!

We have the factory scan tools allowing us to flash and perform software updates of the computer. Diesel vehicles are simply different than other vehicles in some of the ways that they operate and run.
  • Diesel Repairs You Can Count On
  • Diesel technology is constantly being improved. Government pressure to produce low-emission diesel engines for passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, and farm and construction equipment has resulted not only in low-sulfur diesel fuels but also specialized catalytic converters, advanced filters, and other devices to cut down or destroy toxic emissions. Technicians at Bret’s Autoworks are going to have experience with your specific type of vehicle.
Bret's Autoworks is committed to ensuring effective communication and digital accessibility to all users. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and apply the relevant accessibility standards to achieve these goals. We welcome your feedback.
