Jonathan has always been that guy that likes to take things apart, fix them and put them back together. Just out of high school he started working on lawn mowers at one of our local golf courses. Maintaining and repairing them so that they could continue to get the job done on the links. Finding that he enjoyed fixing things, he decided to transfer to an auto repair shop and take his skills and work on cars and trucks. His love for cars led him into a job working with European and Import cars. Joining the team at Wayside Garage has allowed him to broaden his talent to domestic, hybrid and electric cars. He recently became an ASE Certified Technician and is working on becoming an ASE Master Technician. Jonathan has a great personality and is always willing to learn. He continues to keep up on his automotive education so that he can provide proper repairs to our customer’s vehicles. He takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows.



Since he can remember, Sam has always “fixed” cars. As a kid, he would work on engines with his big brother in the garage at home, taking them apart, fixing what was needed and putting them back together. As he grew older he committed more and more time to figure out the ins and outs of auto repair. Sam went right to work at a local Chevrolet dealership as a lube technician and worked his way up to a General Motors certified technician. He continued working in the dealerships specializing in General Motors, Cadillac and Toyota. During that time he took a break from the dealers and started working at Wayside Garage. After 16 years of working in both dealerships and independent repair shops, he was asked to make a commitment to Wayside Garage and has been with us since. With his Master ASE certifications and his thirty plus years of experience, Sam is committed to making an all-around better approach of customer service and auto repair to the industry.



Stacey started working in the family business as a teenager helping in the office  Over the course of the past 30 plus years she became passionate about helping others learn and understand the importance of maintaining their cars  working directly with her father, she was able to learn and understand the inner workings of the cars they serviced and was able to explain in layman’s terms  After 28 years, her father retired and she, along with her husband, took over the business to continue to serve the Monterey Peninsula and their many generations of clients. Stacey’s passion has grown to include continuous education in the ever changing automotive industry. Stacey is proud to be an ASE Certified Service Consultant.
