The Auto Depot Austin History
The Auto Depot was founded by Jim and Jannie Ernst in 1997. As a child, Jim spent his days watching his good friend Harry Porter rebuild classic cars and repairing cars for neighbors and friends. It was during this time that he learned the value of every automobile, and learned how the right care and knowledge could extend the life and performance of any car or truck. Jim never forgot the gratitude of those, his neighbor and friend helped. He never forgot the warm feeling he experienced every time Harry would deliver a repaired vehicle to someone who couldn't afford a new one. Jim was determined to honor his friend by opening a business that would truly offer value to the community. He promised himself to always provide value and outstanding service, regardless of how large his business grew.
