The Bumper-to-Bumper Auto Repair Shop in Fort Walton

Ft. Walton Radiator Auto Air & Repair is a family-owned and operated auto repair facility serving the Emerald Coast for nearly 40 years. Our owner, Danny Spitznagel, opened the business in 1977 after working at a shop in Cinco Bayou. He took the plunge based on his love of a good challenge and because he was good at what he was doing. He didn’t want to stop working as a technician, and he knew he could provide a valuable service to the community.

Danny started the shop with the name Fort Walton Radiator, but by 1980, he was already working on A/C systems, so he changed the name to Ft. Walton Radiator & Auto Air. In 2005, he expanded to general auto repair, and we became Ft. Walton Radiator Auto Air & Repair. It’s a long name, we know… But hey, we do a lot and we have a lot of history!

Getting the Job Done Right, The First Time, Since 1977

We built our current location on Perry Avenue in 1988, but we’ve been in downtown Fort Walton Beach since 1977, so we’re well-known in the area. Our customers appreciate that we get the job done right the first time, when promised, at or below the estimate. It’s our motto, and we work by it every day.
