Neither of them ever anticipated that—26 years later—their sons would follow in their footsteps. You see, Jack Jr. recently bought his first car from Barry Jr.
Dr. Wilber, now professor and chairman of orthopedics at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, and his family have bought at least 10 vehicles from Barry Sr., who is now general sales manager at Metro Toyota in Brook Park, Ohio.
Wilber is a go-to source for medical advice and has operated on the elder Greenfield and his son. Greenfield Sr. is everything automotive for the Wilber family.
“Mr. Greenfield handles cars for my dad, and my dad handles healthcare for Mr. Greenfield,” jokes Jack Jr.
And the boys? Well, they became good friends through the years. So it’s no surprise that Jack Jr. has been driving Toyota vehicles since he started driving. But when it came time for the young man to buy his own vehicle—a 2015 Tacoma—he knew just the person.
“I wanted to buy my truck from Barry (Jr.),” he says. “It’s a great experience whenever we go there. They make everything really easy for us. And knowing that our dads did the same thing years ago makes it kind of special.”
