More Than Four Decades of Outstanding Service

Trans Canada Motors has been part of the Peterborough community since 1971. At this time, Paul and Dorothy O’Reilly left Toronto to begin what would end up becoming one of the most recognized dealerships in the area, due to the unique familial feeling experienced by everyone stepping through their doors.

The business began as the By-Pass Texaco on Lansdowne East. It quickly became a hot spot for commuters on their way to and from the capital or during visits to the beautiful countryside. People regularly made a pit stop to fill up their tanks, as it was conveniently located and most cars then consumed twice as much fuel as today.

At that time, automobile manufacturers were busy expanding across the globe. The Big Three dominated everywhere, and smaller imported vehicle manufacturers were not considered a threat in North America.

These smaller manufacturers asked strong businesses to introduce their new vehicles into the market, which gave Trans Canada Motors an exciting new opportunity. New cars were added to the mix, with Fiat being the first. Nissan was among those, although they used the name Datsun until 1984.
