Ronnie’s Automotive

Pasadena Twitter meet-up erratum:  Paging Mlle Gramophone…Mlle Gramophone, please step this way for debriefing. We told 9 people you are here when you’re really here. So I’m here with a shout out to Mocha Momma, LeahPeah, Pa Kettle, Go and Go, Adrienne, JSPepper, the Everyday Goddess, and Serena. Please understand that when Mlle G says bscan she really means dbscan as in Daily Brain Scan. Twitter here.

Ahem. Now, some photos by The Scout.

At Ronnie’s Automotive in Altadena, CA, looking toward the Coffee Gallery across the street. I love the Coffee Gallery, even if they do play music (which I find distracting when I’m trying to work).

Here is the mythical man of my dreams.

You see, I have owned my Subaru for over ten years now, and I still don’t have a mechanic who I trust. Going to a dealership is pricey. Finding someone in SoCal who knows Subarus is dicey. Subarus are somewhat rare in SoCal, unlike the Northeast and the Northwest and for all I know the middle north in between.

Here she was her prime (photo credit: Edmunds). Now she’s got dents, and a bit of a putt-putt sound, and some squeaks too. I’m over 215,000 miles and I want this baby to make it to at least 250,000, if not 300,000 if not (gasp!) 500,000. But I’m going to need a Subaru expert to get me there. Or am I mistaken…is familiarity with Subarus not needed? I’ve been to this guy in Orange County, but it seems silly to go so far.

Have you found your mythical mechanic? Are you living happily ever after?

    We have found our mechanic – in reality! InFact, ck out Petrea’s post back on 8/24. She’s the nut/bolts blogger among us.

    I think you got your plans crossed when you mixed MG with MH. So, she was where she should bee.

    a good mechanic is a good mechanic and they can work on anything. If Ronnie does it for you go for it. I’m partial to Alex Romo in Duarte myself, especially when it comes to nurturing my 1972 Buick.

    I’ll get back to you on this. I know of someone in Altadena but not off the top of my head.
    K.. although you passed on the invite to join twitter and I did, I still don’t get it.

    I have a mechanic I like and trust. I don’t know if he knows Subarus. Call Vic at A-Car on Walnut: 356-3094.
