Auto Hobby Shops

Hey, gearheads! JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Auto Hobby Shops is an automotive shop designed with the "do it yourself" individuals in mind, however, an ASE-certified staff member is available to advise and instruct patrons needing assistance.

When you bring in your vehicle with the parts you need for your project, you’ll gain access to all of the professional elements of an auto mechanic service center. Take advantage of the flat and lift stalls and our fully stocked toolboxes. See below for stall fees. Bring your vehicle by the Auto Shop – you’ll love how much you can do!
