A Short History of Our Longstanding Auto Repair Shop in Dalton, GA


Doyle Lynn opened Lynn Import Specialties in downtown Dalton over 20 years ago. That’s quite a long time; however, Doyle has been fixing things that are broken his entire life. Import vehicles just happen to be what he’s made a professional career out of for nearly 45 years. He’s worked at dealerships and other independent auto repair shops, but with his own business, Doyle can truly enjoy the satisfaction of a successful job well done, and make a positive difference in the community.

In his own words…

I have always worked in the automotive repair industry in both dealership and independent backgrounds. One day I read an article that said, “Wouldn’t it be a shame to die wondering if it would have worked?” and that pushed me to give running my own auto repair shop a try. I started out as a one-man operation in a rented building. Over 20 years later, here we are with a team of excellent import repair mechanics, friendly personnel, and our convenient facility in downtown Dalton that we now own.
