Family Owned Auto Repair Shop Owners


Coming from a family in the auto parts business, Kevin’s desire to work on cars began at the early age of eight. He was allowed to hold the drop light for his father as he serviced the brakes on his family’s 1968 Ford Country Squire Station Wagon. He would intently watch his dad and began fixing things himself. He rebuilt his first carburetor at the age of 12. He purchased his first car at the age of 15 and began working and paying his way through college repairing cars out of a mini storage unit.

A few years after he married, he received formal auto repair training and became a Ford Certified Technician as well as receiving ASE Certification. In August of 2000, he opened his first auto repair shop in Monroeville, PA.

After moving his family to Texas, Kevin Schafer’s dream was to build Houston’s premier auto repair service center. Armed with proven expertise, a strong business sense, and a deep desire to serve others, he founded Specialized Truck and Auto in November 2009. With over 25 years of experience and advanced training in the Ford Master Technician program, Kevin has the proven skills for service you can trust.

Kevin has built this business on principles he lives by every day:

  • Treat people the way you’d like to be treated
  • A good name is better than riches
  • Always exceed people’s expectations

We are confident that we can deliver an excellent service and would appreciate an opportunity to be the auto shop where you bring your vehicle.
