    Dealer Principal
    419-228-2345

    Hi, I'm Tom Ahl, 2nd generation owner of the Tom Ahl Family of Dealerships.


    After 50 years in the car business, I'm as passionate as ever! I love to buy and sell cars! I love to find specials cars for our special customers.

    My wife, Andrea and I have 4 girls, 10 grandkids. Through the trials of raising the girls and trying to get the business going, I came to the realization of the need for a Savior. While finding business success, I found emptiness in my life. In 1988 I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. After going through a few years of thinking I needed to get into the ministry, I came to the realization that my best and only testimony that mattered was how I treated my employees and how we all treated our customers. God does own it all and has proven to me that the principles are true.

    It is my desire for you to see how God can change a life and a business and that your experience will be different and exciting. Glorify our Heavenly Father.

    My hobbies are motorcycling, boating and waterskiing.

    I look forward to meeting you soon.

    Sincerely,

    Tom Ahl

    Hello my name is Jeremy Stevenson; I have been in the Collision repair business for most of my life. I started sweeping the floors in an independent body shop. While emptying the trash, sweeping the floor, and performing general building maintenance; I found myself falling in love with the collision repair process. I soon took on repairing cars for this same shop while attending Delphos St. John's and then Vantage vocational School for Auto body repair. After graduation, my high school sweetheart and I were married. The lord has blessed us with four wonderful children. I worked in a couple of different shops and as an insurance adjuster after high school. I decided after 9/11 to join the U.S. Army Reserves. In 2004 I had the pleasure of severing with the army reserves in Iraq. After returning from that deployment, the dealership I was working for gave me the opportunity to manage their body shop. I managed there for 8 ½ years. I feel blessed to have been afforded the opportunity to come to work for Tom Ahl Family of Dealerships and join the collision repair team.

     

    In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family.  I also enjoy coaching wrestling, helping with the cub scouts and riding motorcycles.
