Meet Dave Zimny – Honda Master Technician
Dave has been a Ralph Team Member since 1999. Dave has spent over 1100 hours of Honda training some of which have to be completed at the Honda Factory Training Center in Windsor Locks, CT. He recently achieved the Master Technician which is not an easy task to accomplish.

When Dave (or Zippy as we like to call him) isn’t working on cars he is spending time with Nate and Makaela. Nate is 8 years old and loves anything with wheels. In the summer he has a dirt bike he loves to ride and in the winter he loves to be out on the snowmobile. Makaela who is 7 splits her time between cheerleading and gymnastics.

Dave just recently purchased his first brand new Honda which is a 2015 Civic SI.

Featured Recipe
Pineapple Angel Food Cake

­ What You Need:

1 Angel Food Cake Mix
1 large can of crushed pineapple

Make It:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put dry cake mix in a good

size bowl. Do NOT add water as directed on the box. Add

the entire can of crushed pineapple including the liquid. Gently mix together by hand until totally blended. Pour mix into either a tube pan or a 9×13 cake pan. Bake in the 350 degree oven for between 30 and 40 minutes. The cake is done when it pulls away from the edges of the pan. If you want to ice the cake, French Vanilla Cool Whip works very well. Keep leftover cake in the fridge. It is delicious!
