The history of Ed Voyles auto dealerships serving Atlanta, Georgia.

DEDICATION AND PERSEVERANCE UNPARALLELED: OUR ORIGINS
Our long history as the Ed Voyles Automotive Group stretches as far back as the Vintage Age of the auto industry, beginning with Ed Voyles opening a used car lot in East Point, Georgia in the early 1950’s.

MR. VOYLES OPENS HIS FIRST USED CAR LOT

In 1952, Mr. Voyles opened his first used car lot in East Point, Georgia, wanting to provide good, reliable cars to the public.

As our business thrived, so too did the communities around us. Mr. Voyles was a strong proponent of civic service who donated countless hours to local charities and community organizations, including the YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club, the Little League, and the Shepherd Hospital Foundation. Mr. Voyles took this same dedication to community involvement and integrated it into our business, organizing philanthropic events for the betterment of our community.

1959

MR. VOYLES OPENS HIS FIRST NEW CAR FRANCHISE, AMERICAN MOTORS.

Mr. Voyles obtains his first new car franchise, American Motors. Mr. Voyles’ approach to the automotive business was a family-centric approach and integrated the “Golden Rule” principle. The idea that one should always treat others as they themselves would like to be treated, was one that he lived by and tirelessly promoted in every aspect of relationships with customers, employees, and business partners.

“We go against the grain of today’s mostly corporate-minded management practices to provide you with a genuinely pleasing and hopefully memorable experience.”
