Delbert and Gina bought Z’s Car Care over 18 years ago. Delbert has lived and worked as a mechanic in our area his whole life. Gina is a native also, working in business administration. Delbert always wanted his own shop, so we looked for over two years at shops for sale in our local area, and we did not find the right one for us. Then we heard about Z’s. The owner, Mike Zoucha, was retiring, so Delbert went over to meet him, and right away they both knew this was the right move. We took over in 2001, and many of Mike’s customers are still being serviced by us today. We have greatly enjoyed helping all of our wonderful customers with their vehicle service needs.
