Some of the upgrades include bamboo flooring and a kids play room.
"Hasbrouck Heights has always been good," said Kundert Sr., about the borough's assistance throughout the project.
The evening also included the dealership's 45 employees, over half of which have been working there for 20 to 25 years, noted Kundert, Sr.
"We have some really good ones," he said.
