John Lamoreux, Owner | The Auto & Tire Doctor

John (The Car Whisperer) Lamoreux


To say that cars are a passion of John’s is an understatement. As John’s alias indicates, there is nothing that he doesn’t know or hasn’t seen in a vehicle. From the mobile automotive detailing business that John single handed started as a teenager back in 1983, to the purpose built state-of-the-art facility built in 2005 (now home to the Auto and Tire Doctor), John’s world has always been consumed by his love of cars.
