Larry's Automotive is All About Cars

You can’t miss the sign. It’s a big wrench that flies high in the sky.

Larry’s Automotive in Newburgh recently celebrated one year in its new location at 7535 Peachwood Drive. The large oval sign beckons customers as it towers above the northeast corner of the intersection at Lloyd Expressway and S.R. 261.

Although the business location is new, owner-manager Larry Rose and his employees offer over 100 combined years of experience providing automotive and truck services to individuals and fleets. Add tires to the mix, and nearly any issue under the hood can be addressed by this locally owned and operated business.

“We like Newburgh and chose to locate the business here because it is our home,” said Larry about his new adventure. “Our first year has been very successful, and our customer list keeps growing.”

teamwork2The love of auto mechanics began for Larry when he was a young man in Metcalf, Ill, and his passion has remained at the forefront for years. After graduating from Lincoln Technical Institute in Indianapolis, he began his career in Champaign and Monticello, Ill., as a mechanic in car dealerships.

When the Rose family moved to the Evansville area in 1997, Larry found similar employment locally and in Henderson, KY. Several years later, he diversified by working on vehicles at home during free time. A growing number of evening and weekend repair jobs eventually allowed Larry to increase clientele for about 10 years, until his business outgrew its previous facility. “At that point, it was time to take a leap of faith, move into a new location and grow the business with more employees,” Larry said when asked about the transition.

Larry’s Automotive provides services for all vehicle makes and models, including diesel and gas engines, transmission rebuilds, suspension and steering, and engine repair and replacement, all offered with computer diagnostics and pre-purchase inspections. Oil changes, air conditioning electrical systems, brakes and tires are other frequent requests from customers.

“Providing customer satisfaction and quality service is our goal, every time,” said Larry of his business. “We have a 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed policy.”

peopleEmployees have grown to five in the first year as clientele have expanded. Parts and labor are warranted, and consumer financing is available. Professional affiliations include Jasper Engines and Transmissions, NAPA AutoCare Center, and ASE Certified. "It’s been a good year for us and we look forward to serving the automotive care needs of this area in the future,” Larry added.

It’s not all work and no play for Larry.

When it’s time for a break, he can be found working on his classic 1970 Dodge Challenger, or attending a Mopar Car Show with his family and friends. He has spent time at drag strips, and more recently has participated in the cross-country Hot Rod Power Tour.

Larry’s Automotive is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed weekends and holidays. Call 812-490-6575 for appointments or more information, or visit the web site at
