Class Auto Center Tech Session Raises $1,000 for Children’s Dental Health Clinic

Chandler Rabens & Dr. John Blake
Class Auto Center hosted a Tech Session for the Porsche Club of America, Grand Prix Region on Saturday September 21st. The $1,000 in event proceeds directly benefited the non-profit Children’s Dental Health Clinic located on the campus of the Long Beach Memorial Hospital.
According to Executive Director of the charity Dr. John Blake, the Children’s Dental Health Clinic must provide 60% of the treatment costs per patient so they rely on corporate and personal donations from the local community.
“I want to thank Class Auto Center for hosting this event and for supporting us,” said Dr. Blake. “We have a good partnership with the community and this is an awesome local tie in to what we do down the street at Miller Children’s Hospital.”

The four-hour event included a lecture for Porsche Club Members on the latest collision repair technologies and a demonstration of modern body alignment equipment on a 2013 Porsche 991.
Ted Sanders, Project Manager and Porsche Specialist at Class Auto Center, insists it’s important for vehicle owners – especially those with the newest generation models – to be aware of the changing technologies.
“We always encourage the enthusiast customer to be involved in these tech sessions,” said Sanders. “We explain the repair process for their high-line vehicles, and by fixing the car per factory specifications, we preserve its safety, value and integrity.”
Porsche’s latest models, as well as those of several other leading manufacturers, (Audi, Ford and Mercedes-Benz) feature aluminum sheet metal and aluminum structural components. This makes the car both safer and lighter, as opposed to traditional steel.
“The 1960s, 1970s and 1980s cars were a lot easier to fix,” said Charles Weaver, Executive Board Member of the Porsche Club of America, Grand Prix Region. “Because of the lightweight frames and different metals that are in the cars nowadays, you really need a more specialized tooling to ensure the cars are brought back to prior-collision condition.”
Only a handful of shops in Southern California are equipped with the Porsche manufacturer certifications, state-of-the-art aluminum repair tools and factory-trained technicians necessary to repair next generation Porsche vehicles like the all-new, all-aluminum Porsche 991.
