It all started on a little dirt road called MacLeod Trail in 1950

South Centre Fine Cars began in the late 1950’s along a dirt road in south Calgary called MacLeod Trail. It originally started life as Pados Volkswagen with Mr. Pados, a dedicated believer in this new little German car at the helm. Pados Volkswagen grew, riding the wave of increasing popularity of the strange looking yet fuel efficient cars and buses from the German manufacturer of the “people’s car”.

In 1995, South Centre Fine Cars was purchased by it’s current owners, the Shostak family. The Shostaks were no green peas, having owned and operated their sister store, Fifth Avenue Auto Haus since 1984. Progress continued as did the popularity of the VW, Audi, and Porsche lineups. Soon there was again a need for expansion, so in April 2002, the family opened yet another sister store, Glenmore Audi. At the same time their current building of 14 years old, got a freshening to the tune of about $1.5 million to serve customers better.

That pretty much brings us to today, a state of the art facility, and a state of the art team, steeped in rich history. Having been in business this long… they know their stuff, and have earned the reputation of, “The Power to the People Dealer”.
