Jackson’s Auto Care is known for our legacy and history of hard work, cementing ourselves as a pillar in the community, we have one individual to credit for our inception and success. Manson Jackson started up Jackson’s back in 1946, originally called “Jackson’s Motors,” first located on 6th Avenue, and worked all hours to establish his business and create relationships with customers. Later, one technological advancement launched Jackson’s into prosperity. The invention of air-conditioning inside commercial vehicles were growing in both popularity and demand, resulting in enhanced comfort while maximizing a car’s efficiency. Manson Jackson also saw an opportunity to service the broader community as this new technology become widely available for drivers.
The history and development of in-vehicle air conditioning can be credited for our initial success as a business and helped establish Jackson’s Auto Repair as the oldest independent shop in the Eugene area. We started our business in 1946, in tandem with the development and technological advances of the air conditioning industry. Before the advent of air conditioning, drivers had to roll or crank down the windows of their car to allow air flow, though in particularly hot climates, this would only result in the circulation of more hot air. By rolling the windows down, drag inside the car was increased, preventing the vehicle from performing at its peak speed. Needless to say, the invention of cool air conditioning became a coveted feature. Come the 1930s, air conditioning in public buildings like super-markets, stores became the standard, turning interests to other means of air-conditioning. By 1959, the number of total air-conditioned cars had reached one million, making the feature more of a staple than a luxury for car owners. Come 1969, over half of new vehicles sold came preinstalled with air-conditioning, leaving a wide market for air-conditioning related repairs. Jackson’s took advantage of this market, becoming the best shop in the area for A/C related repairs and fixes.
The advent and growing demand of after-market and in-vehicle air conditioning became a highly sought-after commodity, and Mr. Jackson took advantage of this new technology by affiliating himself with the ARA and specializing his shop in air conditioning related repairs and fixes. As a result, throughout the Eugene-Springfield area, Jackson’s became known as the largest service center for air conditioning repairs, with a reputation for effective, professional service. Though Mr. Jackson retired in 1985, selling the company, Jackson’s has been managed by a number of passionate and dedicated owners. Jackson’s currently stands five blocks west of its first residence, on 6th Avenue at 660 W. 6th. Now, Jackson’s specializes in blending both tradition and history with new budding technologies, expert automotive technicians, and reputable service. As a cornerstone in community, Jackson’s exists to service the drivers and families of the Eugene-Springfield area, and we care about your safety when on the road.
