About this business
From Our Editors
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.
