Get to Know Aardvark Automotive

What's in a Name?

Aardvark Automotive got its signature mascot and name when Robert Archer ventured to start an auto repair shop in Amarillo and flipped open the dictionary for name inspiration. He got as far as "aardvark" and laughed at the idea. But, as we all know now, the name would stick-and lead us to the front of the pack, not only in the dictionary but also in the quality of service and automotive skill and experience.

On January 15, 2020, Aardvark Automotive celebrated 40 years of service in the Texas Panhandle. Today, Aardvark Automotive is known as Amarillo's best dealership alternative for luxury cars.
