I'm pleased to join the many others here who have had the good fortune to find Tony! I took possession of my first Ferrari, a 2004 360 Spider, this summer. It had been serviced by other mechanics here in the Bay Area. The experiences were OK, but I was hoping to find someone I felt a better connection with and also closer to my home here in San Francisco. ... I found Tony through the many earlier posts here and it turns out Tony's shop is literally minutes away. A few weeks ago, I decided to take my Spider over to introduce both it and me to Tony and meet this person who so many admire. When we opened the engine cover Tony said he noticed an electrical smell and then we went on to talk about the car and Ferrari's. Then, while we were standing there a large plume of spoke billowed out of the engine bay! What luck I was there! Turns out the solenoid had literally melted, the starter motor and battery fried, and the cooling system had not been bled properly in it's last service. ... A few days and many emails later (that is another great thing about Tony, he keeps in touch with you) he had found a way to rebuild the starter and solenoid, bleed the cooling system, replace the battery and, while he was at it, work his way down a list of small jobs I had asked him about. Having owned many cars of different makes and models over the past 40+ years, I've met and worked with quite a few mechanics. Tony ranks at the very top of my list! His passion for Ferrari's is obvious. But what is special is the care he takes with his work and the way he communicates (even to Ferrari novices like me). Thanks Tony for all you've done and will do!
