    I did 2.5 hours drive today to Tonkin just to get an oil change. I was treated respectfully by Kelly Brown and all other staff. The car was running smoothly, NO OVERCHARGE, and stopped by at the Sales department.

    Greg was showing me the inventory they have there.

    Thanks to Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo's staff especially Greg and Kelly!!!

    Keep up the good work guys, Shelbee

    I was there today picking up my 456-- was your car the black 550?

    There were 2 F50s in the shop when I was there... pretty cool for Portland!

    I have to agree, btw, Kelly and Greg are both great.

    Right, it was my 550 there getting 10k service. I hang out a little bit at the sales and Greg was showing me 00 456M GT Nero daytona/sabia there. Very nice car !!

    I saw a blue 456 GT from the service and it must be yours. I love the tan interior, you kept it so clean. Nice color combo

    Nice pics!

    I wish I could take credit for keeping it that clean, but the truth is they just finished detailing it.

    RTGT are a great bunch of guys...when i had my little incident at the gas station with the battery they fixed it ASAP and did everything perfect, and then some! i remember talking to kelly and asking him what he thought about working on italian cars so much his response was "im more of a truck guy"

    Slightly OT: Anybody know what happened to Brian Keegan, the parts manager?

    Sure! PM me next time you come down and if I can make it, I will. With any luck my 365 will be out of the shop (not RTGT) and I can bring that.

    Nope. Tonkin is not talking, and the usual suspects can't seem to find him.

    Alien abduction?

    When I called down to Tonkin to talk to Brian regarding a part last month, the person who answered the phone said that Brian was on leave do to a "family matter".... I don't know the specifics or if that was true or not.
