Greg Ralph (Owner)
Greg was born and raised in Fairfax Va. He has 3 children and 6 grandchildren who love to visit him at the shop. After graduating from high school, Greg entered the automotive industry working at Centreville Auto Parts. After deciding that he was in the right place, the opportunity to purchase Centreville Auto Parts opened up and he capitalized on it. In the early 80's he began drag racing. Some of his notable accomplishments include winning Hot Rod at the 1985 IHRA Summer nationals, Super Rod at the 1989 IHRA Spring nationals, and Old Dominion Speedway Super pro track champion in 1987. After selling his parts business and leaving drag racing, he moved into the repair industry working as a manager at Manassas Shell which he eventually purchased. After his son moved to Bealeton, Greg and Larry found out that Broadview was for sale and lunged at the opportunity. It was an obvious choice for them to purchase Broadview Automotive on May 1 2017 and every day is a reminder of that positive decision. Greg is more passionate being at Broadview than he has been with any of his other ventures. Greg will be re-entering the drag racing world in 2021 and is excited to share the experience with family and friends. In his free time, Greg serves on the Board of Directors at the 4H Center in Front Royal, spends time with his grandkids, takes his better half out to enjoy local restaurants, and consistently supports small businesses.
Joe Glines II (Technician)

He will tell you how he spent every summer with his grandfather who was a retired Ford Technician at his shop, Curtis Mathias' garage, as if it was just yesterday. After high-school, he decided to enroll at NOVA Community College to pursue studies in the automotive program. After 27 years in the industry, his passion, hard work, and dedication is still just as strong as when he started. Joe and Greg worked together in the 1990's in Manassas and we are happy to be able to continue the collaboration here at Broadview. In his free time, Joe enjoys spending time with his Wife trying out new culinary dishes, relaxing at their home, and simply enjoying every moment.
