Exceptional Care For Almost 30 Years
Fords are strong and well built, but it takes quality maintenance and repair to keep them reliable. Motor Works has been providing these services to DeKalb and Northern Illinois since we opened in 1984. The owner of Motor Works, Marty Fay has been working on these cars even longer. Please see Bunches And Gobs Of Fords at the end of this article.

Special Schools and Special Tools
Superior Ford care is no accident. These vehicles are at the cutting edge of the auto industry. Their hybrid and Eco-Boost systems are just two examples. Our staff is constantly going to classes to keep up with the manufacturers’ ever changing technology.

A large inventory of special tools and computer scanners, plus three ASE Master Certified Specialists are another part of our commitment to the brand. Motor Works is determined to be the Dealership Alternative!

Bunches And Gobs Of Fords
Hi, I’m Marty Fay, the owner of Motor Works. My first Ford was a 1965 Galaxie 500. The car was formerly green but had been painted by brush to its lovely new color; dirty tan. Well, maybe dirty tan is not so lovely after all, but I loved this indestructible car.

My second was a Blue 1967 ¾ Ton Pickup. My third was a Blue 1968 ¾ Ton Pickup. Yup, I owned them both at the same time. Why? It’s a long story. But, since you asked… just kidding.

I learned to drive at the wheel of my parents 1965 Country Squire Wagon. (Basically a Galaxie 500 Wagon). I put more miles on that car than they did.

I could go on, but you probably get the picture. I like Fords. I’ve worked on them for my entire career which now spans 43 years. Having a Ford come into Motor Works is like greeting an old friend. That’s a nice feeling, and a good way to do business.
