|About Mr. Muffler Auto Service Center
In 1979, Rick Luprek, Jr., the son of Richard Luprek, Sr., joined the business and together they helped the
business grow into a reputable garage. Mr. Muffler was still, however, just a simple muffler shop.
1983 saw the addition of a second Mr. Muffler location on Third Avenue in Duncansville, as well as the expansion
of the services offered by the Johnstown location. Mr. Muffler was now no longer only a muffler shop, but also
serviced brakes, provided state safety inspections, and more.
Mr. Muffler was originally established in 1978 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania by
Richard Luprek, Sr. as a basic muffler shop. Mr. Luprek, a lifelong Johnstown
resident, had already established himself as a qualified automotive specialist. A
small, two-bay former service station on Scalp Avenue provided the first home to
Mr. Luprek's new business. From the very beginning, Mr. Muffler established its
reputation of honesty, quality workmanship, and reasonable prices that have
been provided to thousands of customers for the more than 30 years that Mr.
Muffler has been in business.
In October of 1985, the Johnstown Mr. Muffler moved to its present location at 1022
Scalp Avenue, the five-bay former home of the Richland Township Fire Department.
Since then, Mr. Muffler has continued to grow into the full-service automotive repair
shop that it is now, providing state safety inspections, state emissions inspections, oil
and filter changes, exhaust repair, complete brake service, air conditioning service,
wheel alignments, tires, trailer hitches and wiring, computerized engine analysis,
transmission flushes, belts and hoses, cooling system service, fuel injection cleaning,
suspension service, and more!
Mr. Muffler is currently owned and operated by Rick Luprek, Jr.
