Car care: Some things change, some things stay the same at Fall City’s Model Garage
May 24 2013, 4:09 PM
Keeping the Valley’s cars on the road has been the way of things at Fall City’s Model Garage since 1923.
Dennis Musga has owned and operated Fall City’s Model Garage, backed up by his manager and a crew of six mechanics, since 1985.
The auto repair business is Musga’s career. Out of high school, he attended trade school at Renton Tech, training to be a mechanic. Musga served an apprenticeship at Ford and worked at the Ford dealership at Eastgate for 20 years. Then, he partnered with his Valley-resident brother-in-law to buy the Model Garage when the owners were retiring. Plenty of customers followed from the dealership, Musga said.

Small, perhaps, but big in service.
