In 1974, Carl Wegner, purchased a 350 acre farm in central Wisconsin to get away from the city. He and his wife Jane commuted to Milwaukee each day before starting Wegner Automotive in 1975 in a machine shed in the back yard. Originally it was just one man and his passion to do each project greater than the last one. Flanked by a few friends working part time Carl worked on everything from local Hot Rods to pickup trucks and even an occasional farm tractor. As his reputation grew, so did the list of customers. The demand for Wegner Engines has fueled a growth process that continues today. Wegner Automotive now employs more than 20 people and consumes more than 7500 square feet of the original backyard, with no end in sight..
