                Riz…Do you remember my Sunoco station in White Plains at 10 Tarrytown Rd. just over the Greenburgh line?….I was in front of the (no tell motel) The Kings Inn and N.Y.Tel by the County Center….Also The Ground Round restaurant was on the adjacent corner….The state widened the road and I had to move……I think there is a deli there now…I never got to know you guys at your store…….I used Uncle Lou and Donnie at Official, Lenny at Giant Auto and Ray and Stan at White Plains Motors…I guess you guys never called on us or I would have spread some to you also…………I knew everyone in that whole area….I miss those days……………Don………

                  Don,you bought parts through Rizzi’s Auto Parts many times indirectly.Len Altizio and me had an agreement not to sell to each others customers and we would trade off parts to help each other out.Ray was ok Stan was a …. he made a comment to Joe Bonasissi when I opened up he did not like me a year later he hated my guts because I was pumping parts out to 30 + of his customers and Speed Parts to the locals.I used to gas up at Vinnie Garafolo’s Sunoco and when he moved to North White Plains used to sell him parts as well as PJ Whalen who later worked at Audi in Conn.You were across the street from Eddie Keegan’s,Dom DIBozzio’s and Roland Cassia. His brother was Rudy I used to call him the back door man always would walk out the back door when it was time for him to pay his bill.I was in White Plains 10 years with the DePalo’s until alot of stuff went down on the street then moved to Tarrytown.Alot of the guys are gone one way or the other….

                          Bobby Mac, Dino was right this site is GREAT !!!! (except for that Kauer guy HA! HA!) Always wanted your 55′ fast and clean. I sold the Chevelle for a lousy $2000.00 when I opened the Auto Parts store .Frankie Salerno heard the guy who has it now is trying to sell it for 30 G’S. I think a friend of his might have the 55′ he used to work in Firestone when I was in WP. I saw the car a couple of years ago all restored with a few mods.I spoke to Billy a couple of weeks ago. I will never forget the night I let Billy drive the Chevelle against that Camaro from Mount Vernon that was the biggest money run that I could remember.To shut the whole Sprain down and to have about 50 cars lined up to see Casey was unbelievable.In all my years of street racing I could never pull that off. But then again there is ONLY ONE BIILY CASEY !!!

                            Don, Lenny as far as I know was doing mobile windshield repair and had trouble walking used a cane.He used to have a shop up at the airport in the late 90’s I used to bring him up parts here and there.Tommy should be ready to retire a cop in Scarsdale.Roland as far as I know is still around I have a customer that has a GTO and SJ Grand Prix that goes there.My son restored a 79’Trans Am a couple of years ago and we went to Colucci’s up the street another piece of work….
