Conaway Motors is your VW service & repair shop near Kirkland. We specialize in European and Asian model vehicles, and we pride ourselves on being the shop where honesty is not left by the side of the road. The brand VW is special to us – as it is to many Americans, thanks to that iconic folk singer, Arlo Guthrie.
Millennials might not be familiar with this singer unless their parents embraced the beads, headbands and folk singers of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Arlo is the writer/performer of the famous (infamous?) track, “Alice’s Restaurant” about a Thanksgiving Day feast, a pile of garbage, a VW Microbus, and what it was likely to take to NOT be drafted in the late 1960s. A Yahoo questioner typed in, “What did Arlo die of?” That questioner was just a tiny bit confused. The movie Alice’s Restaurant was produced to help pay the medical bills for Arlo’s father, Woody Guthrie, who died of complications of Huntington’s Chorea – a hereditary disease that was poorly understood at the time. Arlo, who regards the fifty-fifty chance of developing the disease, says that life is precious and that if he were to change how he was living because he had the disease, that would mean he wasn’t living as he should in the first place. Not only is he alive and well, but he has four adult children – a son and three daughters – who are musically talented.
Conaway Motors will be glad to be your VW service and repair shop near Kirkland, just call us at (425)905-2424. We won’t promise that your VW will have the kinds of adventures attributed to Arlo’s microbus, but we do promise to give it the tender loving care we would give our own vehicles.
