As automotive enthusiasts, we all know that the automotive industry is constantly evolving, with new trends and technologies emerging every day. However, not everyone has the same level of experience and knowledge when it comes to cars. At 3Denton Auto, we understand that experience and expertise are crucial when it comes to delivering the best automotive services and products.

When you have been in the automotive industry as long as we have, you start to notice that people come and go. But with a comprehensive background that spans across multiple eras, industries, and environments, we have come to realize that there are plenty of people who just talk about cars. While it's cool to add performance parts to your vehicle or try to drag race the local $1500 Honda Civic, these activities do not truly put your skills to the test and prove your automotive knowledge.

However, Henry Denton, the founder of 3Denton Auto, has taken his automotive skills to the next level. Henry started honing his skills as a teenager in the local automotive shop, Sug's Super Service, in Vandalia, IL. He then used these skills to serve our country in the US Army during the Vietnam War, where he was in the motor pool, working alongside other members of the US Military in Vietnam.

When he returned from his deployment, Henry didn't just stop there. He went on to become a multi-time stock car racing champion, designing award-winning race cars through building, tuning, trial, and error. Henry's vast background in the automotive industry has spanned his entire life, and he has always had a passion for anything auto-related since a young age, which clearly shows in his work.

Now in his 70s, Henry still taps into his over 50 years of automotive experience to make decisions, repairs, and architect solutions for both current and older vehicles. He has put so many sides, experiences, and in-depth personal touches on the automotive industry over the years, and we're dedicated to using this blog to help describe those experiences, as well as how we have collaborated as a family to build a modernized method of how we can bring his experiences and skills to the masses.

At 3Denton Auto, we strive every day to build the very best innovations that help the automotive and performance enthusiast. We know that experience and expertise are crucial when it comes to delivering top-notch automotive services and products. That's why we have built a team of experts who share Henry's passion for cars and automotive innovation. Together, we continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in the automotive industry. We are dedicated to providing our customers with the very best products, services, and advice to help them take their automotive experience to the next level.
