Atlanta gearheads converged this past Friday afternoon on what has become an area tradition. As self-proclaimed auto enthusiasts, we here at SimplePart joined in for the ride.
The 2nd annual Fall East Atlanta Roll took place Friday night with over 100 vehicles rumbling over the historic streets of East Atlanta. SimplePart brought 4 cars to the event including CEO Cole Getzler’s 1963.5 Ford Galaxie Coupe, his 1969 Jaguar Series 2 Coupe 4.2 and a 1956 Porsche Speedster replica in 1957 Porsche Aquamarine "grey-blue".
We also brought our classic 1986 K-75 BMW company bike to the roll. Here's a shot of our own Dan Dupree channeling his inner Easy Rider:
Attending the event was just another instance of SimplePart interacting with the local community says our own Cole Getzler:
"I think it's important to be active in our community, and not just the dealer or enthusiast or technical community but the physical community in which we do business." Said Getzler.
At the event, sponsored by Village Garage and Custom SimplePart actively interacted with fellow members of the Atlanta gearhead community and even did some recruiting. We are currently actively searching for car enthusiasts to fill a variety of positions within our Decatur area office. See current openings here: SimplePart Careers
