About Us

Charly’s Garage is a family-owned business with over 40 year’s experience.

Our passion for customizing and repairing cars began in the 1950s during the Beach Boys’ days along the coast of Southern California. Chuck Spencer planted this automotive obsession into his family and together they successfully created Charly’s Garage. Over 40 years and hundreds of custom cars later, Charles Spencer was inducted into the Sacramento Autorama Legends.
