About Us

SourKrauts Automotive is the result of a life long fascination with automobiles and trucks. Owner, Christian (Chris) Schellberg, has been involved in the automotive field since repairing his first wrecked car at age 14. From that point on, he could always be found in his parents garage repairing or modifying some type of transportation equipment.


After graduating high school, he worked at a body shop and several dealerships before spending the next 25 years as Fleet Manager/Technician at Carpenter and Smith Fuels in Monroe N.Y. Along with an ever growing client base in his home shop, Chris and his brother Andrew sharpened their skills in every aspect of automotive repair, maintenance, fabrication and performance.


Having spent the past 33 years concentrating on the automotive field, along with 25 of those years in the fleet and heavy truck field, he brings with him a deep knowledge base ranging from basic repairs to high performance power trains, suspensions and fabrication. This background is supported by much experience in fleet operations from light duty to heavy truck, including vehicle specification, maintenance practice and all aspects of repair, rebuilding and new vehicle fitments (bodies, tanks, pumps, lift gates and plows) to name just a few.


SourKrauts Automotive is ready to serve any and all your auto, truck and high performance needs. From basic maintenance, tires and wheel alignments, to major repairs. Including all brands of vehicles along with antiques, performance road cars and race vehicles.
