The journey of Capital Automotive Group is one of a pioneer company that opened its doors in 1915, the same year that Babe Ruth hit his first home run, the first stone was laid on the Lincoln Memorial, and the
one-millionth Model T was produced. Nearly a hundred years ago, with the founding of Sanders Motor Company in Smithfield, North Carolina, the region welcomed its first Ford dealership!
In the 1920s, a tumultuous decade that followed World War I and ended with the start of the Great Depression, Mr. Sanders moved his growing enterprise to the state capital of Raleigh, where it took root as a pillar of the community and has resided ever
since. More than half a century after its first retail sale, the dealership settled in a second Raleigh location, in what would become a city landmark on the corner of Blount Street and Davie Street.
With the 1970s came the well-deserved retirement of Mr. Sanders and the ascension of a close and trusted associate, Charlie Wiygul, a man who revered the company's history and success but also recognized the need for progressive planning and change. In
1983, Charlie Wiygul Ford was moved to 4900 North Boulevard (now Capital Boulevard), which to many naysayers seemed too remote and too “country.” Time has shown Mr. Wiygul to be a visionary, as the remote site now rests in the heart of
a bustling and thriving city.
On April 1, 1985, a 25-year-old man named Tim Michael claimed the third leg of the company's journey, as Charlie Wiygul Ford became Capital Ford. From the moment he set foot on the premises, Tim conveyed a vigor, enthusiasm and commitment that has never
wavered. His passion for the business, with customer service at its core, is heralded by customers and competitors alike.
Throughout the years, Capital Automotive Group has continued to grow, with 15 different locations offering 12 different brands covering North Carolina. Capital Automotive Group provides consistent customer experiences at all locations, and we are excited
to you help you with any of your automotive needs!
