About Us


Western Star of Dothan History - Gene and Melba Peters

In December 1967, Gene Peters, along with his wife Melba, started Peters Garage, a small, two bay diesel machine shop. Shortly after opening his doors, they became an authorized Detroit Diesel Dealer and in 1974, Peters Garage was relocated to accommodate their growing business. Gene built a 15,000 Sq. Ft. facility with eight drive-through bays including a parts department with a 6000 Sq. Ft. warehouse.

As the years passed and the business continued to grow, they decided to change the name to Truck Central of Dothan and added used vehicle sales to offer an all inclusive dealership with parts, service and sales. In 1996 Gene became a Western Star truck dealer and today we are proud to be the Western Star truck dealership of the surrounding area as well as a Detroit Diesel and Cummins engine dealer.
