About Gorman's Family Garage

Serving the Hudson Valley since 1935, we are a Third Generation Family Business offering Complete Auto and Truck Repairs and Towing for both locally and long distance.

Our History

In 1935 with the birth of their son Don Gorman, Vince and Kathleen Gorman began their business venture with the opening of a gas service station on Rt. 55.

A second location was soon added on S. Clinton Street, and later a third on the corner of Mill and North Hamilton Street.

In 1947 Don started working at age 12 helping his father at all 3 stations. Later on he helped to operate Flying A Towing Service, a predecessor to AAA.

In 1958, all the businesses were consolidated into our current location with the construction of Gorman’s Garage on 102 N. Clinton Street.

In 1969, at age 7, Bob Gorman began helping and learning from both his grandfather and father. Bob graduated American Diesel and Automotive School in 1983. Soon after, he became ASE Certified as a Master Automobile Technician and Master Medium / Heavy Truck Technician.

In 2008 Don turned the business over to Bob into his current position as President of the company. .
