An Active Part of Your Community The future of Neftin's dealership is founded on the past. Starting as a small "mom and pop" dealership in 1977 on Thousand Oaks Blvd., the business has grown into one of the leading multi-franchise dealerships in the area. "But we still carry that image of a small, friendly store where you can knock on the door and talk to any of us," say owner, Howie Neftin. And indeed, walking in Neftin Westlake Car Company is like visiting a friendly neighbor - one who's been an outstanding member of the community for over 25 years. The history of the dealership is one of family success in different quarters of the industry. Neftin's father, Murray was a vice president of finance for Mazda, brother Sam was working in Mazda dealer placement, "and I was selling Mazdas in San Diego after I graduated from college," he said. "We were all successful, so we decided to try a retail operation." The resulting retail operation started at the then Westlake Saab on Thousand Oaks Blvd. In 1977 and was a struggle to maintain. Being native Californians from the San Fernando Valley, the family saw the opportunity and jumped at the chance. Relaeasing the Saab franchise and brining in Mazda, "it was the three of us, an office clerk and three technicians, and the gas crunch was on also. Everyone wore a lot of different hats."
