Sure, the nice folks at the corner gas station do smog checks. They'll also check your oil if you pay them. But you wouldn't take your twelve-cylinder 1953 250 Mille Miglia Vignale Spyder there for a tune-up. Frankly, despite what the Yellow Pages might claim, if you own a serious Ferrari there's only one place in Berkeley you'd take your prancing pony -- Pat's place. Truth is, if you're a serious Ferrari owner in Connecticut and you want your engine rebuilt right, you put Enzo's masterpiece on a flatbed and have it trucked out and back to Berkeley because you know Pat's a master mechanic. You could eat meringue off the floor of his shop and it would still be white and tasty. In a world of superlatives, Patrick and the automobiles he works on are simply the best.
