Welcome to Bachman Volkswagen!

The history of Bachman Auto Group actually began in 1924 when Elwood Priestley became an Oldsmobile dealer in Madison, WV. He drove his cars up and down the “hollers” of West Virginia showing people the exciting new form of transportation that was sure to change their lives.

One of his son-in-law, Joe Holland, a native of Benton, Kentucky, entered the automobile business in 1952. Joe had played basketball for the University of Kentucky and was a key contributor on their 1948 NCAA Championship team. In 1962, Joe and his wife Betty bought out Rhodes Holland Chevrolet in South Charleston, WV and Joe Holland Chevrolet was established.

The third generation of this automobile family began when Joe’s and Betty’s daughter Teresa worked in the office or on the switchboard of Joe Holland Chevrolet during her tenure at George Washington High School. After graduating with a business degree from the University of Kentucky, she married Steve Bachman.

In 1976 Joe Holland offered Steve and Teresa the opportunity to learn the automobile business by working for him in South Charleston, WV. They trained in various capacities throughout the Chevrolet dealership for nine years while saving for a dealership of their own.

In April 1985 Joe was informed that there was a large Chevrolet dealership on the market in Louisville, KY. It had been out of business for several months after failing twice under previous management. Steve immediately went to Louisville to assess the possibilities, and by August 1985 Bachman Chevrolet was a reality. Joe Holland was the majority stockholder, Steve Bachman was named Dealer/President, and Teresa was Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer of the new corporation.
