AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Chrysler Group LLC announced this week the opening of Golling FIAT of Birmingham in the upscale shopping and dining destination of Birmingham, Mich.
Golling FIAT of Birmingham joins more than 100 open FIAT Studios across the United States. This latest FIAT Studio blossomed from a former contemporary furniture store on Woodward Avenue, the main artery that runs through Birmingham and the Detroit metro area.
Golling FIAT of Birmingham, 34500 Woodward Ave., complements dealer Bill Golling’s FIAT Studio in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., which opened in March adjacent to his existing Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck dealership.
Golling’s Birmingham FIAT Studio opens just in time for this weekend’s nationally-renown, 17th annual 2011 Woodward Dream Cruise. More than one million visitors are expected to attend the world’s largest one-day celebration of classic-car culture on Saturday, Aug. 20. Golling FIAT of Birmingham has 14 Fiat 500 and Fiat 500 Cabrio models on display in the showroom. The Fiat 500s are positioned in a sweeping curve in this unique showroom.
“Birmingham is a big walking community, so I tried to make this FIAT Studio a walking destination,” Golling said. “So in addition to our indoor cafe, we also have a stunning outdoor brick patio area with a waterfall for visitors to enjoy while shopping in Birmingham.”
Golling FIAT of Birmingham has the capability for service operations with three service bays and a car wash. Service also will be provided at Golling FIAT at the Bloomfield Hills location.
