  • Lowell Grooms
    Service Advisor
    317-298-9068

    Meet Lowell! He joined our Tom Wood Toyota family a short time ago and has made an excellent addition to our service staff. Speaking of which, Lowell has recently welcomed a new addition to his family as well! So far, he's found the dad life to be pretty amazing and pizza has been fueling his new found dad bod(his words). However, pre-fatherhood, Lowell would spend most of his time working on finishing whatever project car he had at the moment. Fun Fact: Lowell enjoys any form of racing and competition. So, next time you're in our service department, be sure to say hi to Lowell!
