For car enthusiasts, owning a Porsche or Lamborghini might only feel like wishful thinking. However, when those dreams come true, the awestruck emotions only last until something goes wrong. Luckily for every foreign car owner, Donnie’s Foreign Car is there to help bring the excitement back to life.
The shop, which features a staff with over 150 years of combined experience, specializes in servicing foreign cars, although they do work on domestic models as well.
The nearly 9,000-square-foot facility is home to an impressive selection of tires and accessories as well as a team of six highly skilled and qualified technicians.
Donnie Van Patter was born and raised less than one mile from the store and has been working on cars since 1986. In 1991, he took over this space and made it what it is today, building relationships with foreign car owners all across the state along the way.
For him, the most valuable service the shop offers is the average tune-up. “General service is more important than anything to me,” Van Patter says.
From the basic oil change and tire alignment to the more advanced services, it’s all there at Donnie’s Foreign Car. The best part? You’ll almost never have to go anywhere else because, with the expertise found in the shop, these technicians can handle almost anything.
“If we don’t know [how to fix] something, we’ll read about it, we’ll ask questions,” Van Patter says. “There’s not much we can’t figure out.”
Alongside maintenance services, the shop also offers what Van Patter likes to call “truck enhancements.”
With custom modification and fabrication as well as a variety of lift kits, suspension packages and lights, whatever you want to change about your truck, Donnie’s Foreign Car has the tools to help you do it.
With good attitudes, solid expertise and a striking reputation, this shop is one that Arkansas couldn’t do without.
