I found Fremont Foreign Auto simply by using a search engine, then reading the websites of various "foreign car" repair places. Fremont Foreign Auto mentioned that they got interesting cars through their garage from time to time, and my Trihawk certainly qualifies under that category. When I talked with Eduardo Porta on the phone, he mentioned that he owned a Renault Dauphine, which is a very underpowered vehicle that nobody but a mother could love! Well, that was my first car and I figured the guy I was talking to had a soul. His Renault was actually at his shop when I went back to get my car. Eduardo sounded excited to see the Trihawk and knew what it was, but only from magazine articles. When I brought it in he got very excited and went into detail on what might need to be done. I was going to have him install a power shut-off switch near the battery, and he suggested a better one than the one I had, and he installed it out of sight (but within reach), inside the glovebox. He was familiar with the engine (he does own a Renault, after all), and knew it had a Weber carburetor, which he mentioned made everything that much easier (I was having problems with starting the car and figured that most of the gaskets were crushed or pulverized). During the first phone call, we made an appointment for when he personally could work on the car; he said he wanted no one but him to touch it. And then when I first drove in and saw a Ferrari, a high-end Porsche, an Alpha, and a Roller, well... seemed like the right place. When I picked it up he said he'd taken the liberty of calling an upholstery expert in to look at it just in case I want to spruce it up a bit. I would have someone who was good having already seen it. There was also an issue with what looked to me like exhaust tubing that was rusted through. He said he might have to fabricate new pipes but later called to ask if he could just remove them. Turned out to be smog add-ons that aren't really needed. So that saved some money. I highly recommend Fremont Foreign Auto. The last mechanic I had for this car is over in Santa Cruz - too far away. The guy before him closed his shop to work for Jay Leno as his private mechanic. I rate Eduardo higher than either because of his obvious love of interesting cars, his personal energy level (very high), and one last thing... When I was filling out the forms in the office, the lady at the desk was having trouble entering my Trihawk (not a name found in most computer systems), so she asked Eduardo what to do. He didn't just tell her what to do and walk away. No, he took the time to explain the logic and reasoning why he came up with the solution that he did. As a small business owner with many years behind me I know good management practices when I see them. He wasn't just answering and dismissing; he was training, and it was wonderful to witness. That meant to me that he is a "good" boss, someone that people want to work for. Such a man runs a happy shop, which is where I want to take my automobiles.
