About Luscious Garage

The Shop

Clean, attractive, comfortable, spacious: LG is a place for people, not just for cars. Watch us work or relax in the lounge with a book or our wifi. Coffee and groceries are just a block away.

The Team

Auto repair has always required strength, but today that strength must be mental above physical. Our staff has the experience, intellect, and enthusiasm to provide the best auto service anywhere.

Carolyn Coquillette | Owner and Master Technician

Founder. Boss. Occasionally answers the phone and/or fixes cars when everyone else is busy. Still very passionate about the business; if you have any comments, don’t hesitate to contact her directly.

Carolyn currently works full time for her new business Shop-Ware.com, providing LG’s innovative tools to the repair industry at large.

John Peters - Master Technician

John came aboard the good ship Luscious in 2008 and has been pleased with the results. He is a musician, but is willing to work on your car for a modest fee. He likes dogs, but prefers cats, does not own a car but still remembers how to drive one. He has forgiven Stanley Kubrick for “Eyes Wide Shut”

Gil Caramanzana - Technician

Gil was born in the NoPa area and grew up in Upper Ingleside. He started his career with Luscious in 2010 and his favorite job is replacing generation 2 Prius engines. In his free time, he likes to stay active with outdoor activities. Gil rarely watches TV but will never stray away from current events, Jeopardy, or classic 90's SNL episodes.

Karry Walker - Bookkeeper

Usually buried in what little paper Luscious Garage allows on premises, Karry has been counting the beans, minding the regulations and managing staff benefits for Luscious Garage since it hung up a shingle in 2007. In her off time you'll find her in Oakland masquerading as a rather accomplished musician and recording artist.

Gina Petrone - General Manager

Gina hails from Sutter Creek, CA home to California's Gold Rush and arguably the best demolition derby statewide. She has called San Francisco home for over ten years and enjoys living the beach life in the Outer Richmond district with her wife.

Doug Fredell - Technician

I have been in the auto repair and service industry for 25 plus years, most recently as the owner/operator of "California Shell Service" in Pacific Heights, until the inevitable loss-of-lease-syndrome. I am now pleased to make my home at Luscious Garage and belonging to a world class team of professionals. I enjoy traveling the world and spending time with my wife and 3 dogs.

Greg Jones - Master Technician

Gregory Jones is a native to the San Francisco Bay Area and taught himself how to work on cars while still in high school. He has been a professional Technician since 2003. In his free time he likes to restore and modify his own cars, ride motorcycles, and create things in his small home shop. He and his partner live in Sunnyvale with their two cats, Max and Theo.

Elias Ramirez

Son of iron worker and community organizer, Elias was born and raised in the San Diego/Tijuana region and moved to San Francisco to study cinema at SFSU. He likes to play and make music in his free time and work on cars, especially his 1980 Toyota Tercel.

Marlon Fajardo

Marlon was born and raised in San Francisco. He is currently enrolled in Skyline College for the three year automotive program. His favorite basketball team is the Warriors and he tries to watch every game with his busy work and school schedule.
