Behind an unassuming two-story façade of brick and mortar, shop owner Candice Quinteros oversees the expert, efficient maintenance of vehicles through drivability diagnostics, engine tune-ups, tire services, and 24-hour road service. In the proud tradition of Eleanor Roosevelt and her souped-up 1970 Plymouth GTX, the bustling female-owned shop proudly supports women's participation in the mechanical trades.

ZP Auto Repair keeps wheels on the road and minds off the wheels with comprehensive care packages for any type of vehicle. A quick 30-minute oil change keeps cars hydrated and lubricated with a replacement of the oil and oil filter for standard vehicles (an extra fee applies for luxury and nonstandard vehicles, which will receive a $42 credit toward any oil change). Knowledgeable technicians also inspect and top off fluids as needed, and rotate and inspect tires to preserve the treads on automotive sneakers.
A native of Park Slope, Parkside Auto Care owner Charlie has spent four decades indulging his mechanical curiosity in the automotive industry. It all began with a simple thirst for the knowledge of how things work—as a child, Charlie's toys were his father's tools, and his hobby was to dismantle and reassemble anything he could find, including his father's transistor radio. Today, Charlie and his 20-year collaborator, Darwin, specialize in exotic and European cars, their minds encyclopedias of automotive knowledge that guide them through such tasks as repairing engines, servicing transmissions, and breaking in wild Lamborghinis.
