Founder Kevin Hinkley was born, raised and educated in Castro Valley. He graduated from CV High, along with all of the technicians on his staff. The longtime Crow Canyon auto repair specialist has been in business at the same location for 28 years. He handles all kinds of maintenance and repairs for domestic and Asian cars. "Many of my customers are second- and third-generation customers," Kevin says. Almost all are from within a five-mile radius; staff will drop off and pick up customers waiting for repairs within the local area. The shop is AAA rated and open all day on Saturdays. It's on the right (southwest) side of the road as you go uphill, at Waterford Place opposite Greenridge Road.
