Diagonally across the street from the Will Rogers Theater, is Beck's Garage, another "Ice Box" service station. A close look and you will notice the two foot square porcelain panels on the exterior.

Jeff Beck, owner of Beck’s Garage, said he remembers admiring the auto garage at 4217 N. Western. Beck was always fond of the building and jumped on the opportunity to lease it. After weeks of 14-hour cleaning days, Beck opened his new location.

Although the garage has a strong interest in hot rods, vintage and custom cars, Beck said the garage handles all services.

The transformation the garage has made may be evidence that Beck’s is versatile. From demolition to painting to pressure washing the floors and walls, Beck said the work and nearly $5,000 worth of materials put into the location was well worth the sweat.

“The layout of this property is better than our previous location,” Beck said. Beck said the Western location feels like home.

“We’ll probably retire out of this place,” he said.
Beck said the garage, which can often be identified by the vintage cars parked in the lot, will be different from other auto shops.

“We want it to be more of a show place,” he said. “The shop will have a clean, tidy look that shows we take pride in what we do.”

I'd quote my source, but I forgot where this information was found.

Oh, and before I forget, Beck's is a proud sponsor of the Tornado Alley Roller Girls, Oklahoma City and surrounding areas rollerderby league.
