Meet The Team
Tom Prine - Service Advisor
Like so many of our clients, Tom’s enthusiasm for Porsche started with an early 911. After being inspired by the movie Le Mans, he bought a ’73 911 when he was just 24, and he still enjoys sharing his passion for Porsche racing history today. A technical writer, he has contributed articles for Excellence and 000 magazines. He loves music, and is a very talented classical guitarist. We are very fortunate to have had Tom servicing clients with a smile since 2005.
Steve Fisher - Shop Foreman
As a BMW Master Tech and UTI graduate, Steve knows his stuff. Honing his skills at South Bay BMW, his knowledge now extends into motorsports and hybrids. On the weekends, Steve enjoys motocamping with the guys. He also volunteers vehicle maintenance and multimedia services for his church.
Sadie Durning - Office Manager
Joining us from sunny Florida, Sadie was recognized for her outstanding customer service in the boutique hotel industry. She’s making her mark on the automotive world as well, with a nod from Ratchet + Wrench’s 2015 All Star Awards. She also sits on the board for the L.A. chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. In her free time, she enjoys live music. And watchout, you might catch her singing a tune around the shop!
Ray Canales - Technician
Ray has been providing outstanding service with Callas Rennsport since its inception in 1993! He has a distinguished race mechanic background with Reiser-Callas, Werks II and Peterson White-Lightning. Our trusted engine rebuild specialist, Ray has a gift for patience and finesse on even the most fussy of specialized Porsches.
Mike Crommett - PORSCHE/BMW Technician
A graduate of Universal Technical Institute, Mike is a BMW Master Tech with experience at both South Bay BMW in Torrance and Phaedrus BMW in San Francisco. He has a dedication to excellence and is a die-hard motorhead who loves his M5! He’s also a devoted father, self-proclaimed pseudo-intellectual, and -- the shop comedian.
Andy Thonet - PORSCHE/BMW Technician
A former Field Engineer at Hewlett Packard, Andy has an eye for detail and diagnosis. His personal restoration of his canary yellow 914-6 was featured in Excellence magazine and has won two concours, including the L.A. Concours. He’s a Futaba sponsored team pilot, and built his own saltwater aquarium for fun. His dog Rocket loves to tag along with him whenever possible.
Joel Guerra - Administrative Assistant
Our super temp, Joel, helps keep accounting humming. With a sharp wit and a deep appreciation for rock-n-roll history, he has a knack for numbers and Beach Boys trivia. We are lucky to have him!
Skinny - Cool Cat
Originally nicknamed The Ungrateful Bastard, Skinny hated pets but loved food. He ate here and graced us with his presence for over 15 years, and our world wouldn’t have been the same without his adorable aloofness. Skinny passed on this year, but he's always a member of the Callas Rennsport Team, and very much loved.
