It's quite possible. Manhattan isn't like anywhere else in the world.

By the way, all Long Island dealerships, Glen Cove, Huntington and Southampton are owned by the same organization.

What about Larchmont? They are currently hiring.

I'm sure they'll want to pickup the business going forward. There is very little margin on new car sales as I'm sure you know. Dealers make the difference between what they charge and what they pay you! Plenty of meat in there to offer a few extra services.

Not related as far as I know. They are located a short drive off 95 on the New Rochelle/Larchmont border. Not a bad drive from Brooklyn, about 30 mins no traffic, but you have to cross either the Whitestone or Throgs Neck bridge and the toll adds up fast.

Maybe they will offer that to displaced LRM customers, but the pickup service is an incentive to purchase from that dealership rather than price shopping the other dealerships in the area.

That's good to hear, at rush hour Google maps was showing over an hour to Williamsburg from Larchmont. I figure I'm going to get hit with tolls wherever I end up working. From what I've heard, LRM will be closing in September, so that really sucks for me because there will be a bunch of other Land Rover technicians looking for a job. With LRM off the table, I'm looking at close to an hour commute regardless of which dealership (hopefully) hires me. I imagine I'm a pretty competitive applicant, but I also don't have a New York state inspection license.

With the amount of coin the NYC Boost club puts into shoes, scotch, and smokes, would think that all would be lined up for your services. Sublet a garage bay and show your stuff. Word travels quickly.

If it were located somewhere much further north I would be interested. I don't like hot weather, sand, beaches, sun, ect..

I'm getting burnt out on side work, but I also struggle with turning it away! The Boost club needs to invest in a group shop space.

Holy shit, moving sucks! I am throwing away a ton of Land Rover parts, and still have junk everywhere. I should be in New York on Saturday evening.

Say it ain't so!!!

Honestly, if you're pitching them, I can put some in my garage and put them on the free for shipping thread until my wife figures out they aren't for the Classic I'm rebuilding (especially if you have the transmission oil cooler fitting I twisted off a week ago that I'll trade you a Hardywood GBS for).

Do you just need the adapter piece that threads into the radiator? I think I do have a couple of those.
