About Our
Humble Beginnings


I’m Jeff Owings, owner of Owings Auto, and I have been helping folks buy cars in the Fort Worth and Arlington, TX area since 1985.

I worked hard and started humbly in a vacant Chinese restaurant. I slapped a fresh coat of paint on the walls and turned on the "Open" sign. I bought seven cars at a local auction and on July 1, 1985, I sold and financed my first car. Since then, Owings Auto has been built on providing dependable transportation to more than 20,000 buy here pay here customers. But most importantly, we have developed great relationships with many of our customers and we see them over and over again as their transportation needs have changed and grown over the years.
