Callas Rennesport   310-370-7038

Tony Callas is who you wanna see if you own a Porshe or BMW. Why? In his free time he travels around the country to these dealerships lecturing their mechanics on proper service for these cars. He has been involved in endurance Porsche road racing in Europe as well as here. His shop is like walking in to an Operating Room, clean, organized and mechanics moving fast to get your precious baby back on the road/track and then triage the next guys precious patient, i mean Porsche,  to a bay. Like clockwork. We even hired a couple of his guys to wrench for us at 25hrs of Thunderhill a few years back. They have the passion.

Johnson’s Alignment   310-370-6301

Steve Alercon, owner, road races Porsches. When you go to a shop to get a track/road race alignment you don’t want to have to explain to the technician about more positive caster for high speed stability and more negative camber to keep you tires happy and your car balanced. The tech usually will scratch his head and tell you, ” you don’t want that, It will wear your tires out”. Thats when you want to turn around a run. Run to see Steve over at Johnson’s alignment. Even if you don’t know what geometry you want, don’t worry about it, Steve knows. He can set up your old vintage stuff right for track/road race as well the new stuff. It’s everyday stuff. See him before you buy all the aftermarket stuff ’cause he might be able to save you a bundle of cash.
