Don and Ann Long hosted more than 150 CIC participants at their amazing garage in Corona, California immediately following the CIC Meeting.
The guests were not only blown away by the amazing display of classic American cars and memorabilia but also the 60s lunch provided for everyone in Don’s Diner and at tables inside the garage itself.
Don and Ann retired from the industry a few years ago after a major consolidator bought their multiple site body shop and towing operations and are now ‘living the dream’ and it was very nice to see them interacting with their friends from the industry, some they had not met for many years.
Mark Czvitkovits from I-CAR Australia was among the guests and the visit was a highlight of his trip to NACE. No doubt he will be talking about it in his next column in the magazine!
Thanks must go one again to Don and Ann for being the best hosts and to Jeff Hendler and the team at CIC for arranging the visit.
The visit was sponsored by PPG, 3M and the local PPG Distributor Martin Autocolor.
