About Full Tilt

Full Tilt Automotive is your one-stop shop for car repair and performance. We help our clients with everything from an oil change to full classic car restomod.

Our owner, Jon Longworth, graduated at the top of his class from Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in 2007. UTI is well known for providing technical training for students seeking careers in the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, marine and collision repair industries. UTI has direct relationships with approximately 30 OEM manufacturers, such as Ford, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Cummins, and Harley-Davidson.

Jonathan took everything he learned at UTI and started Full Tilt Automotive to give people in the Tampa Bay Area an honest mechanic they can trust.

Our History

Full Tilt Automotive was started in 2014 by Jonathan Longworth. He branched started this business after serving 3 years as a Lead Mechanic for Bert Smith BMW and and 5 years at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Starting Full Tilt Automotive was a perfect fit because Jonathan has always enjoyed working on all types of cars. Some shops discriminate, but whether they’re new cars, old cars, race cars, performance cars, exotics or restomods – Full Tilt Automotive loves all cars!

Happy Customers

Full Tilt Automotive is by far one of the best places to take a car. My engine was repaired and now my car runs like new. There has been no return for that problem. They are now my go to place for tires and regular maintenance. Keep up the good job. Thanks!

I had full tilt install a complete rotating assembly, into my 1971 440 engine block including; crank bearings and crank, install rings to pistons and pistons with connecting rods to crank. Installed the camshaft and timing chain. Lubricated entire assembly. The engine ran perfect.
