Eastside Auto Service Welcomes the Aktive Motors Community

Eastside Auto Service Welcomes the Aktive Motors Community

Click here to read Christian Skovbjerg's full letter to the entire Aktive Motors community Aktive Motors is a full service SAAB & European Car specialty shop located in Oakville. Christian Skovbjerg is the owner and founder of Aktive Motors and an expert in automotive engineering. His passion for the SAAB brand has seen him working with several SAAB dealers across the GTA and eventually back to his native Sweden in 1994 as a Service Educator for SAAB at their head office. After many years dedicated to his craft and growing his business, Christian made the tough decision to move towards a new career change. Like any good business owner that cares for his customers, he wanted to make sure that they were in good hands during this transition period and to find a mechanic that falls in line with his ideals and culture - and more importantly, one that will look after his community. Christian and I met several times over the course of a ... read more

FATHER’S WORDS OF ADVICE

FATHER’S WORDS OF ADVICE

Father's Day has a special meaning for Eastside Auto Service owner Glenn Colling. It was his father Merv who helped to establish the 47-year-old auto repair shop on Chartwell Road in Oakville, Ontario. Reminiscing about rainy days spent at home in the garage as a child bring back memories of flipping through Hot Rod magazine with his brother while cutting and pasting pictures of their favourite stock and racing cars. Glenn knows that his love of cars came from hanging out with his dad in the garage. Glenn was always welcome to accompany his dad at work to help around the shop. He loved the smells, the activity: the whole atmosphere. He and his brother spent a lot of time at the shop puttering and building things. He would even visit on PD days to help wash windows and clean the bays. Glenn and Merv have always been able to work together. Perhaps it's because of their shared interest in things automotive ... read more

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT EASTSIDE!

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT EASTSIDE!

The year is 1969. On July 20th Astronaut Neil Armstrong just became the first human to set foot on the Moon and uttered the immortal words “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Over 400 thousand music fans came together on a farm in New York State to participate in what will become the most famous music festival in modern times. Woodstock reflected the signs of the times, with peace symbols, long hair and headbands showing the feelings of anti establishment felt by young people. And everyone listened to a quartet of young men from Liverpool known as The Beatles. Here in Oakville, Ontario, gasoline cost around $.42 cents a gallon (Canadian use of the metric system was just around the corner). A house in Toronto cost around $29,000 and the average new car is $3,270. On March 1st, 1969 Merv Colling and his partner Jack Moed opened Eastside Auto Service on Chartwell Road. They hi ... read more
