From a muffler shop to a full-service mechanic shop, we still do business just as it should be done - the old fashioned way. Our original muffler shop was founded by Rob Miller in 1996, and has since become a full-service vehicle maintenance and repair shop. From routine maintenance, to heavy line repairs, and everything in between, we’re prepared to get your vehicle back on the road in top condition, regardless of the problem.
Meet The Owner
Although our location, equipment, and specialties have changed, our old-school quality service never will. Philip Schwemin has occupied many mechanical roles between his start in washing cars at Toyota, to standing as the proud owner of Patriot Automotive, previously known as Main Street Muffler. Philip has over 29 years of experience in the automotive industry and has held many different positions, including a lube tech, an apprentice, a line tech, a heavy line tech, and more. He continued to advance through parts and upper management, eventually moving on to oversee multiple dealerships, and then to proudly owning his very own auto shop.
Philip maintains a close relationship with the founder, Rob Miller, and works hard to keep the old-fashioned quality service above par. Philip wanted to take care of customers the way that he thought they should be treated - like friends and family. He is a proud Marine Corps veteran and in his free time enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, training dogs, and exploring new places in the mountains.
"The quality of work performed here is my passion. Our new building is still young - just over five years old - and wonderful. We love what we do and look forward to serving you!" -Philip Schwemin.
