As one of the founding partners of Prospect Auto, Angelo’s success is a product of his love for cars, which began at an early age. He came to America from Italy at 15 with a dream to make a name for himself. Taking advantage of what he was most passionate about, he, his brother Emilio and cousin Gino were able to start a business on the very street where they called home (Prospect Ave). They turned that small autobody garage into the thriving business it is today. Angelo continues to grow his knowledge on luxury cars on a daily basis. As the car industry evolves, so does he, his team and subsequently, the shop as a whole.
