About Us


Family Business

Owner and Founder Leonard Purdy ran his first business, Van Dyke’s Shell Station, in 1961. He bought Barstow Tire and Brake from original owner, Bill Rhodes, in 1975. He expanded that business from six to 14 bays. He also started a towing company in 1995 and Purdy’s Car Wash and Storage. Purdy credits his employees for his great success all these years. Some of them have worked at Barstow Tire and Brake for more than 20 years.
