About Us.

Serving the Fayette County and surrounding areas for over 50 years, McDowell's Service is your one stop shop for all your vehicle needs. The business was started in 1961 by Jim and Betty McDowell. It started as a Texaco gas station with a two bay garage and one light duty wrecker. They had six children and the youngest, Lynn, worked alongside his parents since the age of 14 years old. He learned all the tricks and trades of the business and was soon considered a great asset to the growing business. When Jim and Betty retired in 1989, Lynn and his wife, Shelley, took over the business and moved to the present location where they became a Napa Auto/Truck Service Center with a Towing & Recovery fleet of eight trucks. They have 4 children, and the youngest son, Lucas, is now working alongside his parents to soon take over the business himself. With hard work and keeping the family values first they have made a very successful business.
