Long before they even were of age to operate motor vehicles legally, brothers Thomas and Tim Gerding had become obsessed with all things auto-related — from engine building to repairs to racing.
Years later, Thomas achieved Master Tech status, working for a leading Melbourne, Florida dealership, while Tim cemented a solid reputation in Brevard County Florida as one of the area’s top high-performance engine builders.
In 2017, Thomas opened his own successful full-service auto repair business, Rockstar Automotive, in Melbourne. And in 2021, the brothers joined forces — launching the high-performance engine building division of Rockstar Automotive — an exciting new venture that has the brothers revving into 2022 — full throttle.
Although they have the qualified experience to build any type of engine, the brothers specialize in high-performance LS engines. “We try to stick with high-performance builds,” Tim admits. “If somebody wants to go fast — THAT’S our specialty!”
In short order, Rockstar Automotive has become recognized as a leader in high-performance engine building on Florida’s Space Coast.
Got a need for speed too? The Gerding brothers are always available and eager to discuss your high-performance engine build.
