Lipsticks and Dipsticks

Lipsticks and Dipsticks

I’m not necessarily excluding men, it’s just that when it comes to car care, let’s be honest. The sex that is most often associated with being oblivious with cars is women. To that effect we are having a car care class called “Lipsticks and Dipsticks” and it’s happening 10-12:30 on March 25, Saturday. Please RSVP as space is limited. Still working on a vendor list for people to help us out, and food arrangements at this time. We will discuss how to talk about your car to a mechanic, checking your fluids, changing your tire on the side of the road, and much much more. Get ready to get dirty …well not too dirty! Empower your lady friends guys! …and make some friends from the community

Glenknoll Superhero

Tokyo Automotive prides itself in supporting the community. A little while back my daughter's school, Glenknoll Elementary, we sponsored, got our Logo on their T-Shirt, and a banner. But the most fun part of it was watching the kids run. It's a timed race. I think was 15 minutes and it's how many laps you can clock off in that span of time. Kiyone, my daughter, got 6 laps. It's great watching the kids do their best

Alyssa joined her dad today at work!

Sometimes it happens. Grandma and grandpa are busy, and the summer camp activity you just don't feel safe sending your kid to. So today became an impromptu bring your daughter to work day. Alyssa for the most part watched videos and played games on dad's phone, had a lunch date with Alan, and her Dad. We gave her a hot wheels die-cast car. Hey maybe she becomes inspired to become Tokyo Auto's first woman technician
