about_05Hi, I’m Valley European’s founder Fred Garcia. My love affair with European cars began as a young mechanic when I purchased a Porsche 914. I loved the car, but soon craved more power under my right foot. The 914 was traded for a 914-6 and the first thing I noticed was how much more complex the six cylinder car was from the four. That spurred me to devour the latest automotive technologies in an effort to aggressively move forward. After 14 years apprenticing in a well respected Porsche shop here in Los Angeles, I opened Valley European. It’s been a wild ride. I’ve attempted things others wouldn’t do and been successful. You have to be fiercely competitive in this day and age, on and off the track. Contact me and let’s discuss how Valley European can exceed your performance expectations.
