What started as a dare from his twin sister (to carve an egg shell) has now become an identity. The Eggman, Frank Casciani, wants your eggs - unfertilized and sterile, from finches to ostriches (ladies you can keep your ovaries). That makes him different than most people. We crack them and toss the shells aside for the omelet we can create; Frank Casciani turns them into beautiful pieces of kaleidoscopic art that have garnered him International fame.His studio in Balboa Park's Spanish Village is shared by several other egg artists and jewelers, although he is one of only three, that he knows who make kalidescopes with the shells. The studio is jam packed with beautiful eggs that are carved, painted, bejeweled (Swarovski crystals only). A single painted Egg can take up to 10 weeks to build, and have as much as many as 14 layers of paint. Casciani use automobile paints and glitters in his process. The eggs themselves come from various sources and donors. Your normal super market extra large eggs, however, will be politely declined. The Finch eggs come from a 4-year-old boy whose family raises Finches. He brings them in regularly on a large flat egg carton and earns a buck a piece for them. To be honest, I never thought a shell could look so good and that they could be decorated with more than just food coloring and vinegar. The art is indeed inspiring and beautiful. When in Spanish Village I recommend stopping by Shells In Design for an omelet...I mean "Awe-umm-letting".

I had a rear brake job done here on my 2003 T&C minivan and the price and service was great. What I especially liked was that I asked them to check the front brakes and they told me that I should be able to get another 3 - 6 months out of the brake pads before they need replacing. They easily could have said I needed them replaced and got the extra work, like I think most places would have, but they gave it to me straight. To me this honesty is so helpful in feeling confident in a repair shop. Note: As other have said here - don't confuse this service station with the nearby Shell Car Wash.
They talk to you like people. I've gone here twice for service and a few times for gas. Usually the gas is about 1 cent less than the 7-11 across the street, which isn't much, but we all know how that adds up. I know they've gone through a couple of management changes, that may be why their services were delayed. However, I went for a Smog check and to have my brakes fixed, both of those were done in a timely manner. I was definitely not overcharged. I have never had a bad experience when coming here, and I will continue to do so until proven wrong.
Drove from Phoenix to San Diego on a friday. Fuel pump goes out about a mile from the shop. Called A-Street on a Friday night after 6. Scott said he would wait for me to be towed over. Diagnoised the fuel pump issue and repaired it the next day. Allowed me to pick on Sat nite. Totally saved my weekend. The cost was more than expected, then again he is a prime spot, had the best review on the internets, provided me a tow reference, fixed it in one day.Gotto enjoy the rest of the weekend. Truck runs good - got back to Phoenix.

I was stuck today after jury duty as I had left my parking lights on. When I returned, the battery was dead in my red Miata. After a quick search, I found your shop around the corner and Scott grabbed a charger and walked over to my car and got me on my way. I want to thank you very much for the assistance, and you were even refusing payment that I offered. Thanks again, your shop and Scott is the greatest.
UMI SMOG is the best smog in San Diego, CA 92105. They are very friendly, fast, and affordable. I recommend this location to everyone. If you live in San Diego an your are looking for a good deal then go to UMI SMOG. UMI SMOG price me at $21.75 that was $30.00 out the door. What a unbeatable price.
Very quick courteous efficient and best of all very good price, it was only $30 plus the cist tor the certificate. He was able to smog my v8 mustang that I'd just bought, which I did not think it would pass. It's just a little hole in the wall place so careful you don't miss it.
Our son is going to college in San Diego and needed some car repairs so he took it to Scott and team and they were WONDERFUL!! Extremely knowledgeable and effiecient! Got our son's car going! We will definately go back! It's nice to find trustworthy people!! Thank you!
