Capital Toyota’s Assistant Service Manager – Donnie Thacker

Capital Toyota is excited to introduce our new Assistant Service Manager, Donnie Thacker. Originally from East Ridge, Tennessee, Donnie has been working in the car dealership industry for 28 years. Donnie started working on Capital Toyota’s pre-owned lot sweeping the shop when he was 16 and slowly worked his way up to this position. Congratulations, Donnie!

Donnie is dedicated to serving the entire Chattanooga area, and Capital Toyota will service any make and model of car. If we don’t have the part on hand, we’ll get it from a local parts store as quickly as possible.

Donnie loves working at Capital Toyota because of his passion for cars, people, and the McKamey family, who founded the dealership in 1966. Capital Toyota is where Donnie met his wife, and their fifteenth wedding anniversary is in just a couple of weeks!

Cars are a big part of Donnie’s personal life, too—he races them in his free time and he even acted as pit manager for his son Trey’s kart races. Donnie’s favorite Toyota is the 2001 Tundra he drives, and he loves the outdoors and hunting and fishing with Trey.

Donnie has been an important part of the staff here at Capital Toyota for a long time, and he’ll make sure your car gets the very best service around, regardless of make and model!

 

Next time you’re in for service, say “HI” to Donnie!

Chattanooga Mud Run

Who’s afraid of a little mud? We sure aren’t! Join us for the coming Chattanooga Mud Run next Saturday, August 15th, 2015 at the grounds of Greenway Farms in Hixson, TN. It’s sure to be a fun event with a great cause behind it!

The Chattanooga Mud Run is a 5K mud run to help raise funds for Habitat of Humanity of the Greater Chattanooga area. This run is through a military-style obstacle course with most of the obstacles covered in, you guessed it, mud! Come on out and get a little dirty while getting in your exercise and help support a great local charity!

Your participation in the mud run helps many hard-working people and families purchase energy-efficient Habitat for Humanity homes in Chattanooga that are both affordable and sustainable. You can help change someone’s life by joining us on August 15th.

“We are extremely blessed to be participating in an event such as this, contributing to the organization that helps so many people across the United States and in our local community with the Habitat for Humanity,” says Ed Emerson, Toyota New Car Sales Manager here at Capital Toyota. Be sure to see us there as we’ll be bringing our TRD Pro Toyota 4Runner for show!

A Grand Opening in our New Facility

Join us this coming weekend for our Grand Opening in our new facility here at Capital Toyota on Lee Highway in Chattanooga, Tennessee! It has been a long time coming and we’re very excited to share it with you.

Along with some improvements to the exterior of our building, we’ve also been doing some updating to the interior, including our all-new café, coffee bar, and updates to our waiting areas, which show off our new, large televisions, fireplace, and even a special children’s waiting area for our younger customers! It truly is a site to be seen, and we’re happy to finally be able to provide this to our outstanding customers.

All of us at Capital Toyota wanted to thank you all for your patience and understanding these last few months as we’ve been working hard to improve our facilities. It was difficult maneuvering around our mess during all of the construction that took place, so again, we thank you for being patient with us.

Come see us this weekend at Capital Toyota for an incredible Grand Opening event!
