Moss Motors Founder Al Moss Passes Away

British car enthusiasts are saddened to learn of the passing of Moss Motors founder Al Moss yesterday. 

Motivated by a desire to find a reliable source of parts for his MG TC, Moss took his wrenching skills and a little money and opened a small shop in Los Angeles where he did repair work on the imports just coming into the country at the time. Eventually he obtained franchises for several foreign marques but it was parts for MGs, Triumphs and Austin Healeys that became the focus of the business.

British car owners today are in a much better place thanks to Al's vision and passion. 

Godspeed, Al Moss.
