He then took a salesperson position at a Mercury dealer in Seymour, Indiana before taking on a Sales position here, at Eddie Gilstrap Motors in 1976. 
    In 1979, at the young age of 26, he was offered the opportunity to purchase the store from the Brewers, who were looking to retire. 

    When asked what drives Steve, he stated, "People". He attributes his success on his employees. He values owning a no pressure & honest business. 

    "My employees come first, and the customers come second. Because, if you take care of your employees, they will take care of your customers." - Steve Motsinger
