Carey Trowbridge - Owner

Hailing from David City, Nebraska, Carey has never ventured too far from the automotive industry. As a fourth-generation dealer, some might say he was born into the business. At a young age, working at Trowbridge Motors for his father, Skip, instilled a passion for, not only Ford, but everything automotive. After graduating from Nebraska Wesleyan University, Carey worked with manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Honda, General Motors, and Porsche in sales and finance roles. Throughout the years Carey has developed a remarkable feel for the domestic car market, ranging from classic muscle cars to current body styles. Since 2016, Carey has extensively studied the import car market while working for Porsche. Whether you are looking for a domestic or import vehicle, Carey is sure to have the knowledge you won’t find at many dealerships. In his free time, Carey enjoys spending time at the lake with family and friends, watching Ricky Stenhouse, Jr race around the track, and patiently awaiting Nebraska’s next trip to the NCAA tournament. His all-time favorite car is a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427.
