    I just wanted to thank Tony at T&R Automotive in SF for wonderful attention to detail on a major service for my 456. I can't tell you how much I recommend him to take care of your ferraris or any car for that matter. The cars sounds nastier than ever and runs like a top!

    +1 for Tony.....
    One of the best and caring techs I have worked with....
    Plus he gives you his 430 as a loaner when your car is in service....who else does that?

    GO TONY.....

    Meticulous, contientious, fair-priced + highly educated and articulate ... what more could anyone ask when it comes to dealing with a mechanic?

    Tony removes the drama from owning an exotic!

    I concur with all Ferrari Pilotis who had a great experience with Tony.

    By way of background, I live part of the year in Manhattan (NYC), and my Ferrari stays all of the year in SF. Due to the winter and my 6-month absence from SF, she hadn't been driven; so, when my fiance and I returned to SF, the sun was out, we took my Ferrari out for a spin on the way to dinner at Perbacco's.

    As we shot up California Street, I saw a few Ferraris hanging around at a Union 76 Gas Station; I decided to check it out, and I met Tony. I was so impressed with his technical knowledge and experience that I decided to let him handle the maintenance to my Ferrari.

    He exceeded my expectations; and, I am so pleased with his work. He is now my primary Ferrari technician.

    Next week, he will be replacing the bushings and other maintenance stuff.

    If you want excellent and reliable service and great price, check out Tony at 3898 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94118 (Union 76 Service Station).

    Ciao -- a presto!

    Let us know when and where you are going to try out your airbag. I'll bring my video camera, if you don't mind.

    Tony, can you check the advance curves on my 308 dizzies with pertronix setup (two pickups in one distributor)? or do you just work on the modern stuff?

    I have had three maintenance services along a major service performed by Tony and I am very satisfied with the work and pricing. I have also had him install a new exhaust system and aftermarket parts. Just as important he is always generous in his giving back to the marque through his associations with FCA and FOG.

    Just had the 456 in for a simple oil change. Tony was able to repair some wheel curb rash at the time. The silver color-match was spot-on! All of this done in-house!!

    I have known Tony thru the local Ferrari Club for the last few years. Recently I needed help for an air bag "light on" problem in my 550 Maranello. Tony had the experience and proper electronic diagnostic equipment and fixed the problem in a fast efficient manner.
    I recommend him highly.

    I brought my Ferrari to Tony and Ed at T&R Automotive in San Francisco for the first time; and, as I mentioned in my previous post, I was more than pleased with their work. I'm glad to read, all other Ferrari and exotic car owners are also pleased with his work too.

    I just got my Ferrari back; and, I thought y'all would like to see some photos of my car, as well as the Ferrari 458 Italia, of which Tony and Ed worked while working on my car:

    Tony and Ed: Thanks for keeping my Ferrari running better than new.

    Hi Alfonso, you got the skid plates and radar - looks like you are all set for the Rally! Beautiful car. I looked at it last week when it was at Tony's shop. Love the black leather with red stitching. BTW who signed the air box.

    Yes, no doubt that Tony is one of the best and I would trust him with any Ferrari!

    Hi, 4RE886.

    The 458 Italia isn't mine -- I drive the 328 GTS. The 458 was present at the time Tony was working on my Ferrari.

    The signature is from Mario Andretti. I forgot the name of the owner of the 458; Tony mentioned his name to me in the past.

    It truly is a beautiful car. It was really cool to see my 328, Tony's 430, and the 458 all in one area -- the engineering development and style through the ages are spectacular from an enthusiast's eyes and POV.

    Hi, Financialman.

    Thanks for introducing me to the investment opportunity in San Jose last week. My meeting with them was positive. I'm waiting for them to provide with some statements before I move the cash over to their company. Many thanks for the introduction.

    Yes -- you are correct in that Tony is the best -- I feel truly fortunate to have met him.

    Are you set for the Fog Rally event in September?

    BTW, your 430 sounds wicked!
