|My name is Eric Tod and I am the owner and mechanic at Accelerated Automotive. After 10 years as an Auto Technician working for both a shop, as well as family and friends, I have made the leap into business ownership. I have always had a passion for cars, but after pumping gas throughout high school at a local shop after class and on the weekends, I decided I wanted to make "cars" my career.|
I attended school at Universal Technical Institute in Chicago, IL from 2005-2008 from which I received my Auto-Diesel and Industrial Certificate. After graduation, I returned to St. Louis and began working as a technician at Green Park Automotive for Robert Jackson. He invested in my future and allowed me to continue my education and become certified in the following areas:
Aside from his dedication to helping me further my automotive knowledge, he provided me a role model and mentor on how to honestly take care of customers and maintain a successful automotive business. Because of this, coupled with the 10 years of experience I have gained being a technician, I am proud to open my doors as Accelerated Automotive and begin to service the Arnold and surrounding areas for all of your automotive needs. I pride myself on being an honest mechanic who is dedicated to fixing the problem correctly the first time and treating every vehicle as if it were my own. I look forward to being able to earn your business.

When I'm not at the shop, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a wife, Megan, a 2 year old son, Gannon, and 2 fur babies - Zoey and Thor. We spend the majority of our time hunting, fishing, camping, riding the Harley and pretty much anything outdoors. One day I hope to have my son at the shop with me!!
