Changes… Starting 04-28-2018. Just me

23 Apr

April 27, 2018 will be Ryan’s last day working for me.  He has gotten a job as a mechanic for the postal service.  It is a nice step for him and I happy for him to wish him well with the new career move.

What this means for Hoyeboy Automotive… for the time being I will be taking over the automotive repair.  I am keeping my daytime job so it will make my schedule evenings and weekends for the time being.  Scheduled work will be my priority so I will be making a big push on scheduling appointments.

I still have a couple loaners for those in need of transportation while I am working on their vehicles.


It has been a little rough since the Randolph shop closed and I would like to thank all my loyal customers.  I will do my best to keep up with timely high quality repairs at reasonable prices.

Please leave message or send a text on the shop line and I will get back to you as soon as possible to schedule repairs.

Finally Up and Operational…                10-21-2016

So quick update… I have a friend and experienced mechanic named Ryan running the shop from 8am to 5pm Monday thru Friday.  I am around after 4pm most days when I get off my day time job.  You can find me working from 4pm ish till 8pm on Monday and Wednesday,  Fridays I usually cut out closer to 7pm.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are not as set but you may find me at the shop or trying to keep up with other business items that arise.  However  I do plan to keep steady Saturday hours from 9am to 5pm.  Sundays I will usually work a bit but the schedule will fluctuate.

I am currently focusing on the machine shop work because I no longer have a machinist working for me and when we parted way I was left with a dozen rotary valves to finish.  Once I catch up I will be helping out with automotive work and operating the machine shop until I find a replacement machinist.

Feel free to stop by or make an appointment to bring in your car… Ryan will treat you with the same respect and quality of work you were accustom to from the old shop.

550 Como Ave St Paul MN 55103  Phone numbers is the same 651-983-8150… It is now a mobile number so feel free to text.

One thing to note… while I was closed I had my computer taken and lost my history.  I am slowly trying to rebuild my customer data base but feel free to start passing along the word… Hoyeboy Automotive is back

I have purchased a property…

550 Como Ave

St Paul MN 55103

NOT open for business yet… working on getting the license set up thru the City.  Slowly moving in the right direction.


8 Oct

Hoyeboy Automotive will be closing on October 31st 2014. Problems with the purchase of the property has turned into closing of the shop. I am working on a relocating plan but there is nothing set yet. The phone numbers will be staying with me but I am unsure of how things will be working out. Updates will be posted when I have them.
