Things You Didn’t Know about Dave Mungenast Sr.

Aside from Dave Mungenast Sr.’s extensive knowledge of motorcycles and automobiles, he earned a cartography degree, which is the practice of drawing maps, at St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. After college, he became a member of the US Army Special Forces from 1954 to 1957 where he was picked for the 8th Army Honor Guard. He then traded in his military uniform and appeared as a stuntman in seven major motion pictures, including being nominated for “Stuntman of the Year” for the motorcycle jump in “Paradise Lost” which was filmed in New Zealand as a pilot for a feature film. He also was the double for Gene Hackman in the very popular movie “Airport 77.”

After Dave’s time in the military and in movies, his St. Louis Honda dealership was franchised by Honda Motor Company to sell Honda Automobiles at 5939 S. Lindbergh in April 1964. Between 1961 and 1965, he was at the leading edge of the import motorcycle entry into the US market being the manager of Bob Schultz Imported Motorcycles in St. Louis. While working, he competed internationally in 9 consecutive 6-day trial, off road competitions, and earned two gold, two silver and two bronze medals. In 1964 and 1966, he was the over-all winner of the 24-hour Endurance Race at Riverdale Speedway in Jefferson County, Missouri, earning Honda its first national championship in America. After all his stuntman and racing days, Dave returned to St. Louis and opened St. Louis Honda Motorcycles at 6820 Gravois in March 1965.

Dave became a member of the AIDA dealer delegation that travelled to Japan with the State Department to negotiate Automotive Trade issues with Japan in the 1970’s. Later, he became chairman of the AIDA’s National Trade organization of International Nameplate US Auto Dealers. While apart of the AIDA and into the 80’s, Dave established Doe Run Cycle Park in St. François County Missouri, which consisted of 1700 acres, a.k.a. motorcycle play land. In 1979, he was part of the Budweiser Rocket Car team, which he helped the driver, and his friend, Stan Barrett, land the speed record at the competition. In 1987, he was nominated to the board of the Boys’ Club of St. Louis and served for the remainder of his life.

In 1991, Dave was named the “Time Quality Dealer” by Time Magazine, and then in 1998, he added the full- service auto body shop, Mungenast Collision Center, to the automotive companies. He was inducted into the American Motorcycle Association Hall of Fame in January 2000.

Mungenast Knows Motorsports

Dave Mungenast Motorsports dealership is unique in the sense that it is one of very few businesses selling both Honda Motorcycles and Automobiles. The business is very successful, winning numerous manufacturer awards in both product lines. With an ever-growing customer base and larger quantities of product becoming available, another motorcycle-only building was constructed in 1985 at 5935 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

The Dave Mungenast Group has a long history in the motorcycle and power sports industry, which continues to offer our customers with the same great products as before. Our newly renovated facility was completed in 2012, which showcases our new Honda inventory of Honda Motorcycles, Honda Scooters, Honda ATVs, and a full-line of Honda Power Equipment, including Honda Generators and Honda Lawn Mowers and Equipment. In addition to our Honda line, we are proud to highlight our Indian, Polaris Slingshots, GEM EVs, and Husqvarna motorcycles.

Dave Mungenast Collision Assistance Center

55 years of Making the Difference and Still Going Strong.

The Dave Mungenast Group has been synonymous with providing excellent, quality service since 1965. To expand our service portfolio and offer auto body repair to our valued customers, we opened the Dave Mungenast Collision Assistance Center as a joint effort with Wayne’s Auto Body in 1999. Wayne’s stood out as a premier auto body repair establishment by becoming known for their quality craftsmanship and outstanding customer service.

In January 2010, the Dave Mungenast Group solely acquired Wayne’s Auto Body, and in August of that same year, the name was changed to Mungenast Automotive Family Collision Assistance Centers. Today, we are committed to providing the same, top-quality service to our customers. Let us show you why Mungenast makes the difference!
