European Cars of Williamsburg is a locally-owned and family-run independent automotive automotive sales and service center conveniently located minutes from downtown Williamsburg, offering a full range of automotive services. Established in 2003, European Cars of Williamsburg is locally-owned and operated by Konstantin “Gus” Fotiadis who has been offering his automotive expertise since 1983.
Konstantin “Gus" Fotiadis has been living in the peninsula area since 1972. He emigrated here with his mother from Athens, Greece when he was 12 years old. He went on to attend Denbigh High School and then graduated from the Automotive Training Institute of Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1980.
Upon receiving his certification, he opened his first repair shop in 1983, G & N Performance, on Route 60. This shop is known today as Impact Automotive and CARQUEST of Williamsburg Auto Parts. Gus also owned Colonial Amoco for a brief period during 1989-1992. In 1995 he opened a shop in Athens, Greece called Multi-Car Service, offering fuel injection diagnostics and repairs. While overseas for those 3 years, he received extensive training on European cars.
European Cars of Williamsburg was founded in 2003. The family-run business includes the entire Fotiadis family, including Gus's wife, Marina Fotiadis and their children, Helen Avramidis, her husband, Saki Avramidis, and Chris Fotiadis.
