Interview with Galpin Motors
Since 1946, Galpin Motors has been serving car and truck shoppers in California’s San Fernando Valley. Owned and operated by Bert and Jane Boeckmann and their family, Galpin Motors delivers sales and service for ten brands, including Ford, Volkswagen, Lincoln, Subaru, Honda, Mazda, Volvo, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Lotus.
The world leader in volume Ford sales for 26 consecutive years, Galpin Motors seemingly does it all. They even offer America’s first full-service, in-dealership restaurant (the Horseless Carriage) as well as a Galpin Starbucks.
Their full in-house customizing shop, Galpin Auto Sports (GAS), was featured for three seasons on the television show “Pimp My Ride,” and today showcases a museum-quality collection of customized cars.
