Our Team

Jon and Clint Spohn

 Owners Jon and Clint started from a very young age working for their father Kurt at their other shop, Action Auto in South Minneapolis. Jon and Clint have also purchased Hometown Auto in Lakeville within the last few years, and with the recent purchase of John's Auto Shop , Jon and Clint now have 3 conveniently located auto repair shops for your vehicle's service needs. A positive attitude, hard work, and dedication has been instrumental to their success. Doing something they truly enjoy is the added bonus.



Shop Manager

Starting out in the early 80’s working at a service station by the Old Met Center, Jerry has compiled many years of experience. Transitioning from an auto technician to shop manager in 2002, Jerry has many responsibilities from test driving cars, to keeping the shop flowing. If you happen to see Jerry riding his Harley, give him a wave. He is just as friendly on his Harley as he is at work.


Working on cars since the early 80's Mike has just about seen it all. Broken bolts, stripped threads, blown out spark plugs etc. "I can fix that", "I have one", "I'm on it" are just some of the words that come out of his mouth. There are other words, but we will keep those private. With kids in hockey, you may see Mike at a hockey rink. If you happen to see Mike at the rink, stop and say hi, but beware, his hockey stories get a bit long.


Matt has been in the auto repair field since the 80's. He is one of our most versatile technicians. Whether working on a complex anti-lock brake system or installing wiper blades, Matt gets it done. If looking for a special tool, just ask Matt. "I have one" he'll say. If you happen to see Matt at a campground, don't be afraid to ask him for firewood.


Josh is one of the newest members of the John's Auto Shop team. He has worked as an automotive technician for many years and is one of the most highly skilled in the industry.  He enjoys working on his race car in his spare time and has plenty of pictures of it to share if you want to check it out!
