Houston Section visits Alara Garage

Houston Section visits Alara Garage

Saturday, September 21, 2019 -
9:00am to 12:00pm

An automotive gem inconspicuously located in the western end of the Heights area of Houston is Alara Garage. This is a first-class storage facility that houses exotic, muscle, vintage automobiles, motorcycles and anything in-between for customers. Here batteries are maintained while the vehicles are stored in a climate-controlled environment.

As visitors arrived, they were greeted by a trio of potent Mercedes – an SLS, SLR McLaren and an AMG GT.

Twenty-four Houston section members gathered for gourmet coffee and donuts graciously provided by the owner, Ara Malkhassian. Also on hand were partners Michael Keith (Specialty Car Solutions), Michael Foertsch (M.Brandon Motorcars) and Jason Cavallo (Cavallo Auto Salon) - all located within the facility. So, in addition to storage, services offered include auto sales, paint correction/detailing, ceramic and film protection, vehicle service and maintenance, including full engine rebuilds for your exotic vehicle of choice. 

After coffee, donuts, browsing some of the vehicles available for sale and the shop area, Ara led the group on a tour of the facilities. In one section there was quite an eclectic collection including an art car.

…And a nice Pagoda

One section had all manner of Porches lined on one side and Ferraris on the other - dubbed Germany vs. Italy for their soccer rivalry.


And more cars…

Afterwards, those interested were able to get a close-up view and explanation of several vehicle projects in the shop area.

After touring a quite extensive and varied auto collection, there was a raffle where a free detail and one-moth car storage were awarded.

In addition to being educational this was another interesting and just plain fun event for the Houston Section. All attending seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Many thanks to Ara and his staff as well as his partners with Cavallo Auto Salon, M. Brandon Motorcars and Specialty Car Solutions.

Hope to see you at our next event…
