Mike Babcock – Owner

Anywhere Automotive is a family owned business, founded and managed by Michael Babcock since 1980. Mike’s experience and willingness began at the young age 17 in San Diego California.

It’s funny today when I think of being a business owner & how it all started. My love for cars has always been a part of my life – taking things apart & knowing what to do with them next. I bought my first vehicle, a 1955 Chevy truck, 15 years old, before I had my license. With that truck, I did a complete “ground up” restoration on my “Red Beauty” that I showed at the San Diego Car Show.

Mike embodies an entrepreneurial spirit and has established base roots in the automotive industry for over 35 years. He started his apprenticeship with a local tire store in San Diego California. His experience directed him on to Goodyear tire as he worked his way to be one of the best and top producing technicians mastering suspension, brakes, alignment, Cooling systems, air condition, and smog while going to school to become ASE certified in all areas, Mike then worked at several dealerships Nissan, Honda, Toyota, and Chrysler and with all his knowledge he decided to go into business for himself. In 1980, at home in his driveway Anywhere Automotive was actually started.

Anywhere Automotive was officially opened for business first in Southern California and then moving and reestablishing the business to Concord California in December 1988. Starting with a single employee, leasing a 1,000 square foot building, it wasn’t long before more space was needed to expand and hire employees. Anywhere Automotive is a highly successful and progressive automotive business today. Serving all its customers with the highest level of customer satisfactions while providing outstanding service on all your automotive needs for over 30 years!
