Sometimes when a business moves, its old location is empty a while. Not the case with the longtime Swedish Automotive (WSB sponsor) spot at 7501 35th SW (map). As first noted here in late July, a tenant was lined up long before Swedish moved to its newly built headquarters a few blocks south. Above, the proprietors you’ll now find at 35th/Webster – Todd Ainsworth and Chris Christensen (above), who are now up and running with West Seattle AutoWorks. They went public with details a month ago, as Swedish prepared to move, and today marks the start of their first full week in business. Chris and Todd are both West Seattleites and have worked locally for a long time too; they do repair/maintenance on everything but the cars Swedish handles to the south. They’re online, too – on Facebook here, on the Web here – open Mondays-Fridays, 8 am-5:30 pm.
