FOUND....JASPER Transmission in dependable JEEP

Ken Hooper of Blue Mound, Illinois, recently purchased a project vehicle. It's a stretched Jeep body on a 1980 K20 4x4 chassis. Ken said, "this vehicle has been driven on the road for many years, but it's also been a very dependable mud truck and still runs and drives great." Currently, the vehicle is undergoing an overhaul, the engine and transmission are still in great working order and will not be replaced. JASPER's technical support helped determine that the vehicle's transmission is a Turbo 400, remanufactured by Jasper Engines & Transmissions back in 1989. Ken said, "this transmission has lasted for many years longer than the original. Thank you, JASPER."

Their honesty and professionalism has kept them in business a long time.

This is how I explain it to my friends, when you find a good Doctor you stay with them. When you find a group of mechanics like the ones at Capital Car Care you stay with them.  Whether traveling from Northern Virginia to Boston, Cleveland or any of the other places we like to drive we do so knowing we will get me from point A to point B reliably. We attribute that reliability to the outstanding auto maintenance we receive from Capital Auto Care. Their honesty and professionalism has kept them in business a long time. It really doesn't get any better. Thanks Capital Car Care! - Yelp review from Gary in Virginia.

Veterans Day Appreciation & Thanks

We have great pride in our military and veterans and honor them on Veterans Day each November 11th.  Did you know how and why it is on November 11th?  The reason dates back to 1918 and pays homage to the date and time the WW I cease fire went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month when a temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect. November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars” eventhough the official end of the what we refer to as "The Great War" ended with the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.
