Say, if you aren’t doing anything Saturday morning / early afternoon before the Dinner Drive, you can drop by the open house put together by our friends at German Auto Service. Ben Zeew and the crew will make you feel welcome. There is a car show, so you can put your car on display. Lunch is provided. You can find more details here and at the German Auto Service website. This is a “rain or shine” event.
