On Saturday, February 23rd members of the MBCA Portland section visited Sidedraught City’s new location in Southeast Portland. Sidedraught City is a locally owned business that focuses on car cleaning and car care products; it is a dealer for Griot’s Garage merchandise. Owner Neil D’Autremont has plenty of experience using car cleaners and polishes and enthusiastically shares his knowledge with car enthusiasts in the Portland area.

Neil recently moved Sidedraught City to a new location inside Heckmann & Theimann Motors. Heckmann & Theimann is a 50-year-old business that specializes in Porsche and Volkswagen repair. We were given a tour around the shop viewing some classic and newer cars made by the “other” German car manufacturers.

Even though our club section has met at Sidedraught several times in years past, it’s always a pleasure to see what’s new at Neil’s shop. This year Griot’s Garage introduced several new car care and polishing products, and Neil showed them to members and explained their use. Afterward, Neil used a car’s hood to demonstrate the use of some of these polishes and waxes.

Thanks to Neil for hosting our meeting, and for sharing his knowledge and experience with us so selflessly. For more information about Sidedraught City see its website: http://www.sidedraughtcity.com. It is located at 3220 SE 19th Ave, Portland, Oregon. Click here for event photos.
