  • Thomas Abbott
    Owner

    I moved to Colorado with my wife Debbie in 1979. We lived in Glenwood Springs until 1986 when we moved to Montrose.

    I worked at a Toyota store for 3 years prior to buying what is now Montrose Ford Lincoln Nissan on May 1st, 1986. We used to be located just down Townsend, but we built and moved into our new building in 2001.

    My wife and I have been married for 39 years and have two great children. My daughter Kelly is a physical therapist in Texas, and she has our first grandson Gabe. My son Wes moved back here to Montrose last year to continue the family tradition. His wife Sarah is an attorney here in town.

    When I am not at the dealership, I enjoy getting out to fly whenever I can. I also enjoy archery, and getting in a round of golf.

  • Wes Abbott
    Executive Manager

    I was born in Glenwood Springs, my family moved to Montrose in 1986 when my dad bought what is now Montrose Ford Nissan. My wife and I moved back to Montrose in 2013 so that I could work alongside my dad.

    Prior to coming back here I worked in finance and investment for a real-estate firm.

    My wife and I enjoy getting out with our two dogs whenever we can. We enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer and snowboarding and snowmobiling in the winter. I try to never miss a Broncos game.
