Employee Spotlight

Terry McGlaughlin and her husband Mike have lead a 4-H dog agility and skill training group called Dogs-R-Us  for the past 3 years. During the workshop, students from kindergarten through senior high learn how to teach their dogs obedience, agility, rally (a walking obstacle course), and basic care. These skills are then presented each year at the county fair.


Terry, who has brought home her own ribbons and trophies from showing their Corgis at state and national events, is the head instructor. Mike is a 47-year veteran of the car business. His talents with math and numbers make him a great fit for the Moser Ford Finance office. But, it’s his talents with his hands that dovetail with Dogs-R-Us. Mike has built a lot of the wooden agility equipment on which the dogs train. 

The 4H students have shown well in recent county fairs under Terry’s direction. Last year, Terry and Mike took a student to state who won four golds and a silver medal with two different dogs! This year three students went to the state competition. Out of the eight events, the students only registered one fault. These performances earned them eight Gold Medals! Even the Dogs-R-Us float entered in this year’s Celina Lake Fest won accolades, taking home first place in the Best of Theme category.

Mike’s talents are appreciated at Moser Ford, and we are proud to have him as a team member. When you purchase a car from us, Mike is always there to help with the numbers and you can probably get him to talk about his dogs too!

Phil Eicher in Columbia

Phil personally experienced some of the projects that Adams County FRB supports, visiting Columbia where farmers were being encouraged to switch from growing cocaine to growing cocoa beans. “I am convinced that faith-based grass roots agricultural development projects are the best way for people to be able to feed themselves,” Phil stated.

Customer Spotlight: Wilson Kirk

Wilson Kirk leaves his Greenville, Ohio shop early in the morning with an empty trailer behind his Ford pickup and tells his wife Julie, “I’m just going out looking.” Whether it’s in Washington DC, Mississippi, or out to New Mexico; more often than not, Wilson comes back with an old muscle car begging to be restored. And that’s just how they like it.

Wilson, Julie, and their two sons Griffin, 22 years old, and McGregor, 18 years old, have been completing high end restorations on classic and rare muscle cars for longer than the boys can remember.  The two started working with their parents in the shop as soon as they could hold sanders in their hands. Wilson got his start working on cars out in the shop with his dad at around age twelve. By the time he was seventeen, Wilson had developed a passion for body and paint work and started his own business in Cincinnati. Even then, Wilson was “going out looking” to see if there were any old cars that could use his expertise.

Wilson met his wife while teaching an auto body painting class in Cincinnati. As “love” would have it, she just happened to have her car in for service at the same shop where Wilson was instructing. It wasn’t long before Wilson moved to Greenville to marry that young woman.

The family’s shop is still located in Greenville, and they recently opened a new 7,200 square foot  stable alongside their 6,000 square foot garage ready to restore muscle cars.  Although Wilson Kirk’s Rod Shop is equipped to restore just about anything with its rotisserie style process, the Kirk family can usually be found working on Mustangs, Corvettes and Camaros. Griffin and McGregor have recently started restoring Harley Davidson motorcycles as well. (Griffin with a (left) ‘69 Fastback Mustang and a Boss 302 (right))

The muscle cars of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s are not easy to find. Wilson’s gift of a warm personality and just plain ol’ Midwest honesty have helped him collect several vehicles that even the larger competitors couldn’t land.

What keeps the Kirk family going is a shared passion for muscle cars. Their customers appreciate the time and effort it takes to do a job well. It’s this attention to detail and love of old cars that started it all, keeps them together today, and presents a bright future for their tomorrow.

Moser Motor Sales is proud to have our logo on many of the Kirks’ personal vehicles, including a Boss Laguna Seca  and an F350 customized in the tradition of the Mustang Shelby.

Ford Truck Sales Strong

Dearborn, MI -- Pickup trucks powered Ford Motor Company to record North American results in the third quarter, and the company expects the trend to continue. In the U.S. alone, Ford sold 207,271 F-Series trucks -- that's 85 trucks per hour -- in the July through September period.
Ford earned $2.7 billion in North America, up 89 percent from a year ago, largely on increased sales of its new F-150 pickup. Ford introduced the lighter aluminum-sided model of its best selling vehicle last fall but didn't reach full production at its two U.S. factories until June. Sales of the F-150 and its larger siblings reached a nine-year high for the third quarter.
