About The Owners
Emilio, Angelo, and Gino are the owners of Prospect Auto Sales and Repairs. Emilio and Angelo, who are brothers, came from Italy together with their cousin, Gino, and their respective families, in 1975. They lived in the Belmont section of the Bronx in a community with many other Italian immigrants. Their new home soon would become the place where they would pursue and fulfill their dreams. Being passionate about cars was something they all had in common, and at very young ages they began gaining mechanical experience. While some would say they were practically born with wrenches in their hands, in 1980, they became business owners working out of a rented 3-car garage on Prospect Avenue. Not long after, in January 1984, they closed on their purchase of Prospect Auto Sales and Repairs on Laconia Avenue. At that time they occupied a 2500 square foot building. Over the years, they expanded the business of the mechanic and body shop and therefore the capacity of the physical space needed to follow and expand as well. Presently, they are still located on Laconia Avenue, but the shop is now approximately 20,000 square feet. The evolution of the shop has been a manifestation of the significant changes that automobiles have incurred over the past three decades; always incorporating the most cutting-edge tools, technology, and facilities to accommodate what was current for the automobile.
In our over 30 years of serving the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area, we have been committed to being one of the premier repair facilities in our area. We are proud to have achieved recognition and top level certifications from several manufacturers, including Audi Aluminum, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW, as well as certifications with the Volkswagen, Nissan and FCA. In fact, we were one of the first repair facilities in the greater metro area to achieve certification when the Audi certification program began.
