The original owners of the shop that we call home today were the Kinsman Family. Known then as South-Side Mobil, there were three different operators. Jerry Hougard, Curt Hipke, and Chuck Holten.
The shop was then sold to Wally Millbraph. He owned and operated the establishment until he sold the business to Chuck Pinkalla in 1981.
We began serving Racine in 1981 as Chuck's Mobil & Radiator. At that time radiator repair and cooling system service was our main focus, along with being a full service Mobil oil dealer.
As times changed so did we. Chuck's Radiator & Automotive was our new name and a complete range of car and truck repair was offered along with our expert radiator service.
