A Family Legacy
The original Leehigh Autobody shop, located at 8810 Lee Highway, Fairfax, was originally built by the present owners’ Father, Armistead Turner Thompson circa 1925, as a wood-slab sided dance hall.
This forerunner of the Leehigh Autobody shop ceased to operate as a dance hall in 1933 and was used primarily for storage from 1933-1938.
Shortly after that, the building was converted to use as an auto body repair shop, and Leehigh Autobody was born. Over the course of the next 1/2 century, both the building and the business expanded. The building added cinder block walls, indoor plumbing, concrete floors and rear bay doors, and the business expanded its staff and ownership evolved to include RSG Associates.
RSG Associates is comprised of the three sons of the original builder, Armistead Thompson.When the original building was planned to be torn down to make way for new development, Armistead’s sons Ralph, Spencer and Gordon decided to carry on the business in a new location. With the vision of a lasting legacy and continued excellence in the automotive service industry, RSG Associates have built a state-of-the-art 30,000 sq.ft. automotive repair facility in Loudoun County, VA near Dulles Airport, which opened for business in June of 2006. With the addition of an automotive repair shop, auto detailing facility and two of the industry’s best paint booths, Leehigh Autobody and Service Center continues as a leader in the automotive repair business in the Greater Washington, DC metropolitan area.
