Forrest Richards offers old fashion service

By Floyd Miller



If you are a regular reader of the West Texas Tribune you know we are always looking for the positive story. I actually discovered this story about six months ago and I’ve had the opportunity to experience it over and over.This is a simple story it’s a story about good service from Forrest Richards and his crew which consist of Mike Lozano and Charles Mosley. Forrest owns Abilene C.A.R.S. which is a full service gas station and auto repair shop. {{more}}The first thing that I noticed about Forrest and his staff was their friendly attitude and willingness to help. If there happens to be a service that they do not provide they are willing to recommend an honest person that can do the job. Forrest said that he “started his business in the middle of a recession but God has been good to him,” his business continues to grow. He also credits his supportive wife for much of his success. Forrest learned a lot about cars from his dad who owned an auto repair shop and a paint and body shop in Ohio. I asked Forrest what he liked to do when he was not helping customers. He said “he enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, NASCAR, Football and classic cars.” I could tell you a lot more about Forrest but perhaps it would be best if you met him for yourself.
