About Shottenkirk Automotive Group

It all started over 58 years ago in Abingdon, Illinois with the opening of Dean and Bob’s Chevrolet. Bob Shottenkirk took over sole ownership four years later and served the communities of western Illinois for 20 years before moving the dealership to downtown Fort Madison, Iowa in November 1984.

Shottenkirk Chevrolet/Oldsmobile grew quicky in southeast Iowa, raising the level of service and competition and spurring considerable growth in automotive and service sales. Shottenkirk became a “magnet” for regional car and truck shoppers.

Over the next 5 years, The GM GIANT, continued to dominate the car market as well as draw regional customers from a 100 mile radius. In the fall of 1989, following the untimely death of Bob Shottenkirk, his son Greg, assumed the primary leadership role in the dealership.

Under Greg’s leadership and following his father’s “customer first” vision, Shottenkirk Automotive Group currently operates 24 dealerships in 6 states with more on the horizon.
