In 1980, Terry Griffin worked at a Volkswagen dealership in Oakland, California as a line mechanic. He witnessed for himself the poor customer service that his community members received at the dealership and wanted to make a difference in the industry. He decided to open Griffin Motorwerke with the goal of being the shop that people could trust with their vehicles. Terry’s passion originally grew from his love for cars and his desire to make them go faster. Outside of the shop, Terry enjoys bike riding, photography, and track days.
