Tried and True for 35 Years!

Founded in 1979 as Gordy Graybills Tidy Car, we have been serving auto owners of the Greater Stark County are of Ohio, with a commitment to products of the highest standard, with fair honest customer service and a sterling reputation.


Gordy started the business in his home garage in 1979. As the business grew he moved it to it's current location in 1984, in 1986 Gordy broke away from the Tidy Car franchise, and became Gordy Gaybills Auto Appearance.

In 2002,  Gordy retired at age 73 and I had the opportunity to buy shares and became majority shareholder of the company and changed the name slightly to be known as Graybills Auto Appearance.


I started my own business in 1985 that was known as Twin Star Tinting in Akron. With my previous experience I joined Gordy Graybills Auto Appearance as Manager in 1988. When Gordy retired I, Tim Knight was named President, Gordy Graybill Jr as VP, Diane Knight as Secretary / Treas, and Alan Rogers a silent shareholder.


In 2018 at 89 years old, Gordy Sr. passed away. Within 2 weeks of Gordy’s passing our long-time shareholder, Alan Rogers 87, also passed, initiating some changes for the future.


As of April 1st 2019, what was formerly known as Graybills Auto Appearance, is now Auto-TEK Ohio LLC. TEK derived from my initials Timothy E Knight, Owner.  With 40 years in the automotive aftermarket business, I still enjoy what I do every day!
