It's been quite some time since there has been a news item update. It's actually been too long and I apologize for this since it truly comes down to me. First and foremost, in case you didn't know this already and you're just now learning about this, a little over a year ago to date, the Dave in Eddy and Dave's Garage passed away unexpectedly. Although it's been a little over a year, it has still been very difficult to grasp and acknowledge his absence from the shop. For those of you that didn't have the forune of meeting Dave or getting to know him the way I did, let me tell you firsthand that he was an incredible person and in many ways. Ask people, google him, or just ask me the next time you see me at a show. He was a great guy, an awesome dad, and a fantastic family man. I am very fortunate to be able to call him my brother and my best friend at the same time. I know that he is missed greatly by everyone that he came in contact with, and of course, needless to say, by me. A lot has gone through my mind since and I have been working diligently to make sure that things continue with Eddy and Dave's Garage. Let's face it, Dave would have wanted it this way, and quite frankly, it's an honor to drive my highroof around with Dave's name plastered on the side. Proud and ready to help you all with your hobby, project, or daily driver. With this said, our shop hasn't changed too much as far as what we can offer you. Our location is slightly new for those who have come by in the last year. We are now in the corner just about 3 doors down from the original shop. The hours of operation, in regard to the physical location have changed. Due to the demand of parts delivery, we are now by appointment only when it comes to picking up parts at Will Call. We offer local delivery of parts to shops and will even do housecalls if time permits. As far as mail order is concerned, please place your orders accordingly online or over the phone if you prefer, and they will be shipped as usual. Our phones are on 24/7 and email is also available from 7am to 10pm. If you receive our voicemail, we are tied up on the phone, but PLEASE leave a message and a contact phone number. We WILL call you back. If you want us to call you "after hours", we will. Just tell us please. Although we may be closed during what most people call "business hours", it's our goal to answer your emails as soon as possible and when you need help. As a hobbyist, wrenchhead, and VW aficcionado, I know the importance as well as the luxury of having somone to call on at the odd time of day or night to either order something or have a question answered. I know that this is something that most places do not offer, and therefore it's a nice-to-have and we'll do our best to help you. Thank you to all for your business and for your support. We look forward to seeing you at the next show or gathering.
Kindest of regards,
The Eddy of Eddy and Dave's Garage
