Car-Tique Auto Body began business in Highland Park when my father, Phil, began doing small jobs out his small garage and driveway of the home where he and my mother were living and raising a family.  In 1974, he was fortunate to find a separate location to open up his own repair shop.  Since opening those doors in 1974, Car-Tique has continued to operate in the same location.

Car-Tique Auto Body has been a family business from the very beginning.  My mother created our business name when she compared the business to that of a boutique for cars.  Hence the name, Car-Tique!  In the beginning, my sister worked with Dad to help run day to day operations, and later I joined my father and helped with everything from small tasks to growing the business.  My father and I became business partners, and in the mid-90’s, I purchased the business outright.  And though he is now semi-retired, Dad still comes to work 3 times a week to help me with the business.  It is very gratifying to still have him by my side and to operate in the same location for 36 years.

Our work is grade A level, our employees are well-trained, we use the finest European paint system, quality parts, and we thank you, our valued customers, for choosing Car-Tique Auto Body as your preferred place to have your car repaired.
