  • Tom Ahl
    Dealer Principal
    419-228-2345

    Hi, I'm Tom Ahl, 2nd generation owner of the Tom Ahl Family of Dealerships.

    After 55 years in the car business, I'm as passionate as ever! I love to buy and sell cars! I love to find specials cars for our special customers.

    My wife, Andrea and I have 4 girls, 10 grandkids. Through the trials of raising the girls and trying to get the business going, I came to the realization of the need for a Savior. While finding business success, I found emptiness in my life. In 1988 I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. After going through a few years of thinking I needed to get into the ministry, I came to the realization that my best and only testimony that mattered was how I treated my employees and how we all treated our customers. God does own it all and has proven to me that the principles are true.

    It is my desire for you to see how God can change a life and a business and that your experience will be different and exciting. Glorify our Heavenly Father.

    My hobbies are motorcycling, boating and waterskiing.

    I look forward to meeting you soon.

    Sincerely,

    Tom Ahl
