Our Story

Our Story: Dave and Zoie Carney

In 1978 Dave & Zoie Carney decided they had enough cold Minnesota winters and headed for the year round sunshine of California. 1984 was a busy year, daughter Katie was born and Dave started Hillside Chevron. The “service station” business allowed Dave to put his Midwestern values of hard work, good value & down home friendliness into action. It did not take long for Dave to figure out he liked being of service to others.

Just like in the early years, winning over one customer at a time became the formula for success. In 30 years, that has never changed. Dave and Zoie have committed themselves and their employees in the art of taking care of customers.

1990 was another busy year. The Carneys welcomed a second child, their son Kevin, and a second Chevron station in Torrance. Ten years later, Hillside Auto Repair was established in its current location and Zoie joined the growing business. Her warmth and caring, attention to detail and organizational skills have shaped Hillside’s culture of service, ensuring the delivery of  an exceptional experience to every customer.

Today, Dave and Zoie celebrate over three decades of serving the community. They have been recognized as industry leaders. Dave & Zoie praise their staff for this success.  Our employees are a talented and dedicated team.

We invite you to come and join our family of satisfied customers.
