BLACK FOREST MOTORS was founded as an automotive repair company, specializing in German and Swedish imports, in 1978 by Wolfgang Wahlers. It was originally located at 3701 North Shadeland Ave. in Indianapolis. The business was incorporated in 1982, and moved to a nearby location, at North Shadeland, in 1986.
In 1987, BLACK FOREST MOTORS, Inc. became an authorized Bosch Service Center, one of only five in the Indianapolis area. Mr. Wahlers named his company after the mountainous district of southwest Germany, an area renowned for its natural beauty and dense dark belt of fir forests. He did this to symbolize the visual and mechanical elegance of the high-precision German and Swedish automobiles we service. The founder has been involved in the business since its inception and continues to be active in its direction.
The present facility is a full-scale service center, custom built to accommodate the rapid growth that BLACK FOREST MOTORS underwent in its first decade of operation. The facility has a parts department. It is equipped to handle complete engine and transmission overhauls. Mitchell on Demand and All Data information systems are sophisticated tools matching service needs of high-performance German and Swedish automotive products.
BLACK FOREST MOTORS is easily accessed from two Interstate highways, I-70 and I-465. The facility is conveniently located in an attractive commercial area with restaurants and an antique mall.
