THE STORY OF JAY WALTON AUTOMOTIVE

The history of auto repair at Jay Walton Automotive’s Central Ave location goes back to 1967 with a business called Auto Repair Service. Randy Luce started work there in 1972 as a teenager.

JAY WALTON, THE PERSON

Jay Walton started in the automotive field with Chevron Oil Company as a service representative. In 1974 he opened his first service station in Albuquerque, adding two more soon thereafter.

Jay Walton’s commitment to excellence made him the first repair shop owner in New Mexico to receive AAA approval.

JAY WALTON AUTOMOTIVE, THE BUSINESS

In 1982, Jay purchased Auto Repair Service and renamed it Jay Walton Automotive. He brought with him his commitment to excellence and soon expanded to a full service repair facility.

After hiring Randy Luce to work with him, Jay noticed Randy shared his commitment to excellence and promoted him to be his general manager. Randy served in that capacity for more than twenty years.

JAY RETIRES – RANDY & SANDI LUCE PRESERVE JAY’S LEGACY

When Jay retired in 2007, he sold his business to Randy Luce and his wife Sandi. In honor of Jay’s legacy, Randy and Sandi decided to maintain the shop’s name, and today the Luce family carries on the tradition and continues the commitment to excellence that started in 1967.
