    When I was very active in FCA back in the 70s and 80s, there were some companies I remember. For example, Kessler in NYC and Grand Prix SSR on Long Island.
    Also, there was a repair shop called, as I recall, Berlinetta, in Huntington Station.
    There was a Maserati/FIAT dealership in Buffalo.
    Another shop was KTR in Groton, MA.
    And, of course, FAF in Atlanta.

    Are any of these places still in business?
    Just curious.

    IIRC, both Kessler and F/M of Atlanta are both in business. Never heard of the others.

    Where is Kessler now. They aren't in NYC anymore. KTR is still around but they are in Ayer, Ma. Some of the others I do not know.

    Cheers

    While Kessler is still in business, they are no longer an authorized Ferrari dealership. My understanding is that FNA "revoked", (for lack of a better word), Kessler's franchise. I also believe that Kessler relocated to Florida.

    Berlinetta is still in business, but my understanding is that they have downsized considerably since the crazy Ferrari days of the late 1980's.

    Maybe someone else on the board can lend further details to the above.

    The first Ferrari I ever sat in, a 308, was at Grand Prix SSR in the late '70s. I had vowed by then that I would own one someday, but that didn't happen until early this year!

    I believe Ferrari of Long Island, today's authorized dealer, is in Glen Cove?
