  • Tom Ahl
    Dealer Principal

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

    After 60 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.

    Hi, my name is Andy and I've been with the Tom Ahl Family since May of 2015. I started off working in Parts and Service before becoming a Sales consultant at the Buick GMC building. 

    I grew up in Wapak where I played baseball and football for the Redskins. After graduation I moved to Columbus and was a 2013 graduate from The Ohio State University. Also in 2013, I married my high school sweetheart. After my wife graduated nursing school, we decided to come back to the Lima/Wapak area to be closer to family and to start one of our own. In 2017, we welcomed our first daughter, Peyton, into the world and then again in 2019, we welcomed Sadie to our family. These girls have changed my life and I love nothing more than being their dad! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my girls and family, fishing, watching OSU football and Cincinnati Reds, and playing golf. 

    I enjoy meeting new people and getting to know their needs when searching for a new vehicle. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and to be a part of your vehicle purchasing experience. Please feel free to email or call/text me with any questions! I look forward to meeting you!
