Inside a restored brick building on Cherokee Lane, Mark Lange has created a shrine for classic cars.

The showroom of Vintage Reserve Garage features his immaculate collection of foreign and domestic vehicles. Rubber and leather aromas permeate the air while vivid yellows and electric blues from refurbished neon signs adorning the walls rapidly flash away.

    Thanks, councilman Katzakian for not responding to my email to you at your city hall url. I'd expect that from you, Hansen and Johnson to anyone that has the courage to question the suspected corrupt practices and pandering you constantly resort to that benefits your bottom line favoritism and nepotism. Will you get that $37,000 per employee enterprise zone welfare money? Or Mr. Lange?

    It didn't surprise me to discover that this building happens to be in the enterprise zone here in Lodi and will qualify for many city perks and freebies, courtesy of Lodi taxpayers. It seemed funny that councilman Katzakian would be selling houses from this property since his extended family has nice offices of their own. Is Mr. Lange a permanent Lodi resident or is this just a venture from an out of town resident? How does councilman Katzakian suddenly decide to locate a real estate office on the "blighted side of town on Cherokee next to a well known party bar? I certainly hope councilman Katzakian didn't use his influence at city hall to swing this deal? Jordan, just what perks and freebies will this fancy "enterprise" zone business be allowed? Water, electric and utility rate breaks? Property tax breaks? Subsidized payrolls for any employees? Councilman, do you have any interest in the ownership of that property or LLC, if that's the case?

    Councilman Katzakian selling houses out of this lavish business? That doesn't seem an appropriate fit for such a beautiful, well planned vintage automobile showroom as this. I'm really impressed with the work of Mr. Daniels and his son and the restoration of those antique and hard to find original signs. Great job, Mr. Lange! Welcome to Lodi and hopefully you'll bring some, hopefully many of your southern Cal clients to shop and stay in Lodi. A new unique business such as yours is a welcome sight. I do suggest you visit Mr. Wentland and tour his collection of vintage automobiles for added appreciation of the beautiful aotomobiles of the past. As a North Dakota kid who hung around my uncles' Kaiser, Jeep, DeSoto dealership, I appreciate vehicles from that era that are vintage, classic and drivable. Unfortunattely due to my age,health and declining driving ability, I can only look at these beautiful automobiles and dream.
