In 1977, William J. Cofer had a vision, he acted on it and B.C. Automotive, an auto repair garage, opened on North Sheridan Rd in Zion, Illinois. In its grassroots stage, Cofer worked very long hours, persevering to see the business through.
Several dedicated people, including two teenagers, Cofer’s sons Steve and Ron Slocum, labored with him.
In 1981, the business moved to 2809 Damascus Ave, where it stands today, now as a “Recycling Facility” for new and used recycled car and truck parts.
