I have known Whitey since 1977 and he is the best at what he does. I am convinced that there is no one better at VW engine work. He is very honest and trustworthy guy who takes great pride in his work. Not many in this world left like Whitey. You can't go wrong patronizing his business.

Best of the best ,,A+++

Whitey is the most knowledgable Vw vender around!!
I am amazed he knows the small difference of each year, most people see a Vw bug or bus and assume one part fits all, you be amazed by the small but numerous changes.Whitey will sell you a economical part but will give you the option to buy quality, and not pressure you in your decision. You can't go wrong buying from Whitey. When you buy from online; the parts come wrong, dented, scratched, or very poor Quality, it's nice having Whit
...view moreey around to buy Quality parts from ,by the time you pay shipping & handling and the waiting, it works out cheaper buying from a local Vw parts store! Plus if you listen you will learn something. Whitey is as unique as the cars he works on! A true treasure in the Vw Community!!!!view less

Whitey is the best

Whitey is the go to man for any & all things pertaining to VW's, machining, parts, etc...The man amazes me with his in depth knowledge of the air cooled engine. He always takes the time to explain the difference in quality of parts. He is a pleasure to deal with and very witty as well. Not to mention...keep it local people! German Automotive...I will definitely be back!!

This is the best vw shop around!!! Whitey knows volkswagens inside and out, I have been doing business with him since 1998 , he has always given me the right parts and the knowledge to install them correctly ! He does all of my machine work, and I buy all my motor and suspension parts from him. I have three vw's and all the parts come from German Automotive!

I've had several VWs since my high school days and well into college. Whitey has always provided me with honest advice and quality parts. I even crashed my bug in college (not my fault) and he worked with the insurance company & body shop getting them what they needed to repair my car. Whitey is a very honest and capable business owner. He is "old school" so he not only respects people, he expects respect in return and holds people accountable if they try and take advanta...view morege of him or his services. These days with the internet and big box stores taking over, it's nice to find a specialist who knows his stuff and is not afraid to show people the door if they disrespect him or his place. Long live German Automotive!view less

I've known and done business with Whitey Worsham since 1995. Whitey is the owner/operator of German Automotive in Fletcher North Carolina.

In all my years of dealing with Whitey he has been: Honest to the core, Very Knowledgeable about automotive machining, Extremely knowledgeable about the Volkswagen Air Cooled engine line in all variations and dependable/trustworthy to a fault.

He is a person who prides himself in giving great service to and taking care of his customers. If som
...view moreeone has a problem with Whitey, in my opinion/experience, they went Way Out of Their Way to cause it, because Whitey will bend over backwards trying to help and or satisfy a customer. However, as you may know from your own experience, you simply can not satisfy some people no matter what you do.

I believe Whitey opened his business in the late 1970's. Anyone who has been in business that long must be doing things right. You can't stay open for 37 + years in the same location, in a small community if you haven't taken care of your customers and provided good service.

This recommendation of Whitey as a person and German Automotive as a business shouldn't be taken lightly. I drove my first VW beetle in 1957. I have been in a Volkswagen based business since 1975. I have owned 497 Volkswagens all at the same time and currently own 93.

If anyone had or has a problem with Whitey, I can only say that if you want to be treated like a gentleman, then you must act like one.

The best air cooled VW shop (and store) this side of the Mississippi I have owned air cooled VW's now for 15 years and always go there for the excellent service and knowledgeable info that he is willing to share. Always willing to order parts if needed and I NEVER had any problems with a return Highly recommended A+++

I have had 6 VW's over the years, and currently have a 1977 bug that I am in the process of restoring .Over the past three years. Whitey has gone out of his way to answer my questions,and order hard to find parts. I just can't say enough about this guy. If you have an air cooled VW this is the place to go.
