“I recently learned about a tragic fire that hit one of our dear automotive aftermarket members — AAA Undercar in Los Angeles.
AAA Undercar has been in business since 1990 covering Los Angeles and its surrounding areas. Benjamin Shahmaram is a good friend and the nicest person you can find. Unfortunately, his business suffered a very tragic fire on December 19th on a Sunday right before Christmas. In this fire his building was destroyed.
“Based on what they can see most of the inventory has been destroyed as well. AAA Undercar had five longtime employees working for them at the time of the fire and thankfully no one was at the building or hurt during this horrible ordeal.
“Benjamin and his partner Sean are hoping to rebuild the business back up as soon as possible but in the meantime every little bit helps. All of the proceeds from this campaign will go to AAA Undercar’s employees.” — Michael Rukov
