LYONS MOTOR CAR • APRIL 2018
The Lyons family is a car family with a long and intimate history with the automobile. Duke Lyons Sr (grandfather) was a horseless carriage and farm implement repairman through the 1910s and 1920s. He introduced his son, Duke Lyons Jr, to radio TV and later automobile repair, which led him to work as a union Longshoreman, Automobile, and Truck Mechanic to Steel Fabricator throughout the late 1980s.
He, in turn, taught his son Kevin Lyons the intricacies of cars over a lifetime of learning. Duke Lyons Jr. was considered by many to be a mechanical genius and had a turn a wrench for a living mentality; he believed the American dream was only equal to how hard you could work. One of his many life slogans, "if you want it to go out and work for it" and "if you think you're less talented, outwork the next man. These words, among many, taught his sons how to conquer adversity and failure and are now part of the Lyons Motor Car mission and philosophy.
Duke was a man who started life in the segregated south and died a millionaire with only a 6-grade education. His steadfast beliefs and never-quit nature many years ago enabled his son Kevin Lyons to start a career in Graphic Design, leading to the start of Lyons Motor Car.
