Michael Galati

Michael worked as a mechanic in his native Italy on Alfa Romeos. He moved to America in 1980 and began working for various car dealers in the area including Crestmont Porsche/Audi and Great Northern Foreign Auto. He opened Galati’s Foreign Car Service in 1984.

Starting as a 1-bay facility, Michael worked long hours as the only mechanic and service writer. Through honesty, integrity, hard work and dedication to his customers, Michael expanded the facility to the 6 bays you see today. Even after 30 years +, Michael is still very hands on and can be seen turning wrenches in the garage bays, talking to customers on a daily basis and overseeing daily operations.

Here at Galati’s we not only build a customer base, but pride ourselves in building lifelong relationships. Most of our technicians have been with Galati’s since the early years, and many of our customers have been with us since the beginning.

Michael is also a well accomplished race-car driver, winning over races and 5 World-Championships in his career.
