Welcome from Brendan Brooks

Arch’s Automotive Service & Smog was started in 1941 by Arch and Carol Brooks. Back in those days they worked on every component of the vehicle.
“We did not have a choice, there were few specialized shops back then so we had to make do with what we had, and we did a good job.”
Arch Brooks - 1986
Arch passed down the business to his son Wally Brooks in 1976 until he retired in 2004. Arch’s Automotive Service & Smog is now owned and operated by Kevin Maltese — who has been with Arch's Automotive for the last 31 years — and Arch’s grandson Brendan Brooks — who, after 4 years in the Navy came back to the business.
“I grew up here, I love it up here, and I'm honored to keep this business thriving that my grandparents started over 70 years ago.”
Brendan Brooks 2004
