CARSTAR has announced two new locations that have opened in New Jersey, CARSTAR Proline Auto Body of Pinebrook and CARSTAR Proline Body & Chassis, according to a press release. 

CARSTAR Proline Auto Body of Pinebrook is located at 91 US-46 in Pine Brook, New Jersey. It measures 7,000 square feet and has a staff of 10 individuals. The other store, CARSTAR Proline Body & Chassis, is located at 545 River Drive in Elmwood Park, New Jersey. It measures almost 9,000 feet and has 16 employees.

Both stores hold I-CAR Gold Class certification and are OEM certified for Tesla. They’re both owned by Todd Fontana, who has decades of experience working in local shops and as a body painter. 

Fontana’s passion for working with automobiles started when he was 18 and bought a 1969 Firebird for his birthday. Performing modifications and fixes became a hobby he was passionate about, which led him to the career he has now.

“Joining the CARSTAR family has been like going to business school for the auto body world,” Fontana stated. “I have seen first-hand the value of the working relationships CARSTAR has with its partners, and I feel inspired to keep my business growing.”
