New Canaan Car Donation Winner

A Car Donation, A Life Changing Event, Project Wheels

Ms. Princess Henderson had a life changing event when she received a donated car. As a single mother with a special needs daughter, Princess was in desperate need of a car until Matt deGarmo’s Project Wheels provided a miracle in the form of a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta!

New Canaan Foreign Car donated all the labor to make minor repairs and fully service the car to make it safe and reliable for Princess and her daughter. The Umbrella Club of Stamford, a local community-based charity, graciously helped Matt deGarmo purchase the car. Leelee S. Klein, President Emeritus of The Tiny Miracle Foundation, identified Princess as the perfect recipient for the miracle Jetta.

After 35 successful years in vintage cars, Mr. deGarmo of Matthew L. deGarmo Ltd. Classic Motorcars in Norwalk is giving back to the community, using his network of car people to provide cars to local needy families who have special-needs children. Mr. deGarmo’s longtime friend and car dealer, Matt Konspore of New Canaan, found Princess’ perfect Jetta. New Canaan Foreign Car supports Project Wheels as part of their mission to provide the best possible service to the community every day!

Automotive Maintenance for Women

In the United States, women buy more than half the cars, and are responsible for maintaining 85% of them. One-third of all repair shop customers are women. For this reason, we strongly believe women should understand the basics of automotive maintenance—because understanding a vehicle’s maintenance needs will reward you and your family with a safer and more dependable vehicle. In addition, an understanding of automotive maintenance will improve your car’s value, making it worth more at trade-in time.

Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you have about car care. In the meantime, read our Service Tips.

Proudly Serving New Canaan & Nearby Areas

We’re proud to serve New Canaan, where family-owned businesses like ours are an important part of the community. Compared to dealerships and franchise service centers, we are a small company, which our customers appreciate, but at the same time, we’re one of the most esteemed and well-known European auto repair facilities in Connecticut. This means we have all the equipment and resources you’d expect at a full-service auto repair center, and people come from all over the area—including Wilton, Darien, North Stamford, Ridgefield, Greenwich, and Silvermine in Connecticut and South Salem and Vista in New York—to take advantage of what we offer.

If you live in the New Canaan area, we hope you’ll call NCFC for all your automotive needs. We won’t settle for anything less than your car’s excellent performance and your 100% satisfaction.
