Gold Coast Auto Works began in 2014 under the name of Gold Car. The name change in 2017 came as an idea to make more customers aware that we service all of Broward and Palm Beach but also have clients that will drive up from Miami to have us service and repair their cars. While we began as a general automotive repair shop and continue to service most makes and models, we have developed a specialty in working on Jaguars, Land Rovers, Mini Coopers and Volkswagens as we are one of a few shops in the North Broward South Palm Beach area that offers that specialized service. Rest assured that we are equipped with a modern facility and prepared to give you exceptional and honest service. We do try our best to treat you like Gold.

Lundy Poponne co-founder has had an interest in cars since his childhood watching his Stepfather working on cars. Lundy always found time to help out at the family auto shop in Virgin Island so he was already an experienced auto tech well before attending Devry before graduating from Devry in 1984 with a degree in Electronics and Auto Tech. Lundy immediately entered the automotive industry and established an excellent reputation for accurate diagnosis and solutions to repair a variety of cars. Over the past twenty five years Lundy has worked for companies such as Goodyear and Volvo before deciding to open Gold Coast Auto Works with his close friend Marli Pinto in 2014.
