What differentiates us
Established in 1969.
This shop was started by a very hard working German immigrant named Karsten. He specialized in VW and earned a reputation of being the best VW shop in the valley. Other makes were added over the years and some were deleted. In 1990 Mats started working at the shop as a entry level mechanic. In 2005 Karsten retired and sold the business to Mats. Karsten can still be spotted at times visiting the shop.
