He was so friendly and engaging he took me on tour of the repair facility which included servicing race clients with 935's. I was amazed when he explained that the dealership flew parts in directly from Germany once a month. The most amazing part was on that day it was Vasek Polak's birthday and I was invited upstairs to the boardroom to have cake (some car or racing themed cake if I recall) and I met Mr. Polak. I was at Pebble Beach Concours recently and drove to Hermosa Beach and found the building gone!!!! So sad. Such great memories.
Memories of a special man and dealership live on...
