Car care products, accessories, garage supplies, tools, gift ideas and more. Griot's Garage started out, quite conveniently, in my garage back in 1988. Being frustrated at the lack of high quality products to set up the perfect garage, whether that included the finest car care to take care of my vehicles, or a concrete floor paint that didn't lift up when you drove over it, no one was offering it. Two years went by and I said, "I can't believe no one else is entering this market! Everyone seems to be excluding the guy that eats, sleeps and squanders his hard earned cash on cars... and there is no one there to offer high quality products to fan the flames of his passion!!!
