Harry’s Foreign American Auto

Your parents’ mechanic was honest and treated the family Cadillac like a fourth child. Car doctors like that may be endangered these days, but they aren’t extinct—not while Harry Nesdekidis is still repairing carburetors, anyway. He knows his stuff when it comes to what’s under your hood, and truly cares about each customer (he threw extra wiper blades into our trunk and taught us how to install them). When it comes to mending crippled cars, in Harry we trust.
