Get The Good Stuff !

GEM Auto Parts was founded in 1964 by Gladys, Earl, and Merle, and is deeply rooted in the Atascadero community. GEM was selling auto parts when the Beatles were touring America ... and now it's a few years from celebrating its 50th year in business!

In 1979, current owner Kelly Powers's brother and their dad took over the business from Gladys, Earl, and Merle, and kept the name GEM. After Kelly's dad retired in 1989, Kelly joined the business, and in 2004, he took over as proprietor.
