History of Frank’s Automotive
Nick & Frank circa 1969

Frank Lettini came to America after leaving Italy in 1959. After serving in the U.S. Army he came back to Sacramento and found work at a local Volkswagen dealership. He excelled in his position, eventually became the shop foreman and quality control. However, Frank had a vision for a different, more personal approach to automotive service and repair. In 1969 Frank decided to open his own shop where he worked on nothing but German vehicles.
His son, Nick F. Lettini, started working along side his father as a small child. Nick would spend summer vacations at Frank’s Automotive helping his father and team of technicians. Many of our clients have seen Nick grow up in the business. The father and son’s love of providing exceptional service and taking care of customer’s vehicles was shown in their outstanding work.
Nick’s Son Luca
In the 1980’s, Nick began to take a more active role while attending Jesuit High School. While attending Jesuit, Nick began spending afternoons and vacations learning the trade and seeing his father’s vision. In 1997, the father and son duo became partners. Since then, Nick has taken the reins of the business and expanded on his father’s dream; providing Sacramento’s German Vehicle Market with an alternative to the dealerships.
