Bob Penkhus

The Bob Penkhus family of dealerships had its humble beginning back in 1951 when Robert N. Penkhus moved his young family from Ames, Iowa, and opened a small used car operation in Colorado Springs. New cars were added to the operation on Pikes Peak Avenue in 1957 when the Company became one of the ten dealers in the United States to obtain a Volvo Franchise. In 1972 the Volvo Franchise was moved to a fledgling area of Colorado Springs called Motor City.

Mr. Penkhus' son, Robert A. Penkhus ("Bob"), joined his father in the business upon his graduation from the University of Denver. Bob Penkhus gradually assumed responsibility for all aspects of dealership operations, and in 1977, became President..

Since then, the Company had the honor of acquiring Mazda, VW and Mitsubishi and has grown tremendously, with three locations in Colorado Springs.

In 2016, Bob Penkhus was one of 50 dealers nominated for the Time Dealer of the Year award.  As the only dealer in the state of Colorado, Bob was quite honored by this nomination which is one of the automobile industry's most  prestigious and highly coveted honors.  Recipients are among the nation's most successful auto dealers who demonstrate a long-standing commitment to community service.

We have had the pleasure of serving Southern Colorado since 1957, sixty plus years!  Thank you to all the amazing customers that have given our dealerships the opportunity to earn their business!
