Curt Tow has owned and operated gas stations for over 30-years. For the past 20-years, Tow has been located off of Route 127 in Murphysboro. “It’s a good location, I’ve been here long enough that I’m well established,” Tow said.
He started working and getting an appreciation for cars and auto work when he was a boy, “When I was about 9-years-old we use to farm, when you’re a farmer you have to work a lot of stuff yourself, that’s where I learned a lot of this stuff,” Tow said. Tow is the only employee of Curt’s Garage, he works 13-hour days and is open six days a week.
