Not only is the staff very knowledgeable and experienced, but actually enjoy working on the various domestic and foreign cars that come through their shop. They will also take the time to explain in detail what is needed for your car. I feel extremely fortunate to have found them. At the time I was looking to purchase a 1988 Porsche 911 in the area and needed a PPI inspection. They were able to work me in, conduct a thorough inspection, refer me to someone for a smog check, and I was able to confidently purchase this car. They helped make the whole experience less stressful and very rewarding."

"They are the best for wintage cars and any car for that matter. They know what they're doing, They have done their homework to research the best practices and the best buys and they are not in it to rip you off. They pass their smart research and ethical standards on to their customers. They have a sense of pride and family honor to give the best and most honest tranparency of costs for parts and labor. They stand by their work and make good for any work they do. I would recommend them to anyone that needs help with their car, even old lady school teachers like myself, who know nothing about cars. They are an honest company and are not in the business to rip off innocent naive people like myself. I appreciate their honesty and willingness to help. I'm grateful that I found 101 European when I needed to learn about cars because I bought a vintage care and knew nothiing about them. Thank you for being so helpful and caring to teach me about cars and especially the very specific and complicated needs of a vintage car. Thank you for helping me achieve my need to relive the past by buying a Volkswagon Camper that was so much fun for me in the 1970"s. Now I can relive my dreams again and travel with my house on my back. What a hoot! :>)"
