I loved that car. Angelo! Are you still there in Brooklyn?
Brett should have taken his car to Life Quality Motors, they would have taken care of him.

I'll always remember Angelo's partner (whose name I can't remember) asking me if I wanted to have this car get an "Italian tune up?" I had complained that it was hesitating. I didn't know what that kind of tume up was, but he was Italian and I thought, sure, he knows about these things. He asked for my car keys and told me to take the passenger seat. We left the dealership and he found an empty stretch of road. He looked at me and said, "ready?" Sure.
Off we went, pedal to the floor and redlining the engine in each gear up through 3rd (he undoubtably would have done 4th as well had we not run out of room-this was after all Brooklyn!) Needless to say, I nearly fainted. Here was the car that I babied EVERY day in EVERY way!
Also needless to say, the car no longer hesitated.
