Adam Di Carlo - 1970 1750 GTV
I met Pino over a year ago at a FIAT cruise night. I still remember his warm greeting and the good references that everyone at that cruise night gave him. I had just purchased a set of good used Campangolo wheels with Bridgestone RE71s and to my horror I discovered that the wheel studs on my 1970 GTV were too short for the rims. I took the car into Pino’s garage and he changed the studs the same day. At the same time he repaired a wheel bearing on the rear axle all for a reasonable amount of money. Pino’s shop is immaculate and I was very impressed with their knowledge of the Alfas. All of the work that Pino has done for my Alfa has been very satisfactory.
The guys at Pinarello have passion for the Alfa marque as well as other Italian cars. They are members of the various Italian car clubs and their reputation is second to none. Keep up the good work guys.

A month ago my wife came across the Toronto Fiat Club on the web and sent me your info to see if you could recommend a reputable place for service on my '81 Fiat Spider. (I was tired of being screwed by people who don't know the car). On your recommendation, I took the car to Pino @ Pinarello Motori. They rebuilt the transmission; corrected mistakes that other companies had created (I'll spare you the details) and did a complete once over on the car so that I could plan its revitalization. Last night on my way home from work, the car started to run very weird. I was concerned to say the least. This morning I stopped into Pinarello to ask them to check it out. Not five minutes later they had me on my way, no charge. Pino told me not to worry, it would be fine. And for the first time in the five years I've owned the car, I am actually not worried about making it to my next destination.
Scott, thank you for steering me in the right direction. You saved me an enormous amount of time and money.
Pino, thank you for putting care and honesty into your work & the enjoyment back into driving the car. Your skills are truly appreciated. My car proudly wears a Pinarello Motori license plate frame. And damned if anyone else will ever touch her again,

I am very impressed with your work! You did a wonderful job rebuilding my 164's engine, diagnosing and repairing wiring problems and generally correcting problems that I believe were created by other less knowledgeable mechanics. I was especially appreciative of the maintenance tips you provided on the small things I could do myself. Thanks again for a job well done making my S perform the way a sport sedan should.
