Melanson Motors Inc. will deliver each of our clients a comfortable experience that aims to exceed their expectations. We believe every car is unique and should be cared for accordingly. A sincere automotive passion combined with attention to every detail will deliver the highest quality service every time.
We pride ourselves on our expertise in the classic and performance car industry. We enjoy helping you find a car that is exactly what you have been dreaming of. We love what we do and we look forward to helping our clients have a wonderful experience before, during, and after their purchase.
Melanson Motors' detailing approach is different than other "car washes". Other methods can tear down both painted and delicate surfaces, leaving them bare and unprotected. We clean all surfaces with a delicate touch that restores interior components and will not swirl paint. Whether it be a leather conditioner or a paint coating, we believe proper maintenance of an automobile requires protection. Our goal is to have your vehicle leave our shop in "better than new" condition, looking fantastic and protected from everyday wear and tear.
About The Owner - Warren Melanson
I have been a passionate car buff since before I can remember. Even before I could drive, I remember working on vehicles every chance I could get. I always wanted to be learning, fixing, and cleaning. When it comes to automobiles, I am a fanatic. I have lived in the Stratford area my whole life and attended the University of Guelph for a baccalaureate degree in commerce. It was during that time, at the age of 18, that I decided to start a business detailing vehicles. As years went by, the business continued to grow and I took the ultimate step toward my dream; I opened 'Melanson Elite Automobile Sales'. I attend some of the largest automobile events in North America and I always have an eye on the market for classic cars. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family. My wife, Jessica has been with me since we were 16 years old. She supports me in every aspect of life and she also enjoys driving classic cars. I want to continue to find the best examples of these unique cars and improve each one that comes through the door. When you leave your vehicle with me, you know it will be left in the hands of a perfectionist.
Meet The Team
Attabiq Bhatti - Sales/Photography
Life has always revolved around cars, it’s my hobby, it’s my career, it’s how my friends and I spend time together. I started my sales career in retail for 7 years, then jumped to the automotive world at Toyota in the pre-owned department, until I met Warren and joined the Melanson Motors team. Buying, selling, and working with classics and collector cars is a dream come true. As someone who grew up with exotic cars, I love the speed and the noise of special cars. I help run a car club in London where we partake in cruises and local meets, mostly consisting of Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, among other exotic makes. I started my own photography company showcasing these cars in and around the London area. I’ve always been attracted to the odd ball cars or the more grassroots companies like Koenigsegg, Spyker, and Pagani. 70-90s German cars, BMW 2002 or older AMG models and somehow I ended up owning a 1978 Corvette…which I love. V8, pop up headlights, T top roof, and curves. My perfect combo. Growing up in London I do have a soft spot for American muscle. Stop by the shop to say hello and check out some cool cars, I'm always happy to meet new and old friends!
Mason Vernooy - Detailing Specialist
My passion for cars has evolved because of my dad. Growing up he had an 88' Foxbody Mustang that he has now recently been restoring. Because if his influence, in my spare time I enjoy modifying my Mk7 Volkswagen Golf. I enjoy being able to express myself through my car and make it one of a kind. After recently graduating from Lambton College and earning a diploma in General Business, I've joined the Melanson team where I can work alongside cars everyday
