Weldon’s Auto Center Inc was founded May 1, 1976, on 919 N Mississippi, Ada Oklahoma by Weldon & Nancy Cravey. Weldon saw a void in the market for excellent service and decided to leave the dealership he was working for and signed his first lease. On May 1, 1986, we moved to 1001 Cradduck Road behind the Marion Fenton Pontiac dealership. On March 6, 1996, a fire destroyed the contents of the shop, Weldon and the team persisted and moved into the next building over. It was the wonderful outpouring of support from the community and strong fan base that helped us succeed. Over the last forty-two years, we have been voted “Ada’s Favorite Auto Repairer” 19 times. As we progress forward, it is our desire to continue to provide the highest level of service to the community possible.
