  • All foreign and domestic cars, per the business card. I have been going to these guys for many years with my Ford van. They have helped me out in so many ways and always made my car run great for a great price. Super friendly and great people! This is the second generation of "Kevin Hinkley's" running the shop, and I believe his kids work in the shop with him.
