A New Business in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque

There’s a new, trendy, upscale auto shop in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. Sunday, April 3, 2011 was the Grand Opening for a second location of Dan Brown’s Automotive at 7702 Fourth Street NW, at the corner of Fourth Street and Los Ranchos in Northwest Albuquerque. From the eye-catching mural on the south side of the building to the classic leather chairs in the office area to the spic-and-span garage, it was clear that this is no ordinary auto shop.
