About the West Parmer Lane Team

Darin Hinkle Manager

I have lived in Austin, Texas for more than 40 years. I got my start in the automotive industry working in an auto machine shop. I worked in this shop for eight years rebuilding engines, building race cars and restoring classic cars. I also managed an auto parts store for four years. I started writing service in 1995 and became a service manager in 1996. I have completed several training classes including: total wheel alignment, ride control, understanding emissions, engine management and solutions and many more. I am ASE Auto Repair certified and ASE Master Machinist certified. I joined Brake Specialists Total Car Care in 1999.

I have served on the Youth Optimist board for several years and have coached youth baseball and football for 16 years. In 2009 I won a Community Service Award from the Travis County Sheriff’s Department. In 2011 I won the Austin Mayor’s Award for People with Disabilities.

My hobbies are fishing & golf. I also enjoy watching sports, especially Kevin Harvick in NASCAR, the Rangers in baseball and the Titans and Longhorns in football.
