Book's Automotive changes hands
Last updated 2/15/2022 at 2:48pm
There's a new name on one of Fountain's oldest landmarks: Book's Automotive Service, at 111 N. Santa Fe Ave., is now Stehlik's Service and Tire.
Book's owner Ron Book retired after selling the business in December to Garth and Kathi Stehlik of Colorado Springs. The Book family started the business in 1939, and it may have been the oldest business in Fountain.
The new owners are long-term Coloradoans who moved from Denver to Colorado Springs in the late 1980s. They and their son Shane also own Stehlik's Auto Service at 2410 N. Powers Blvd. Frontage Road in Colorado Springs.
