The Tony Monopoli/B&T 50 Year Reunion


The reunion took place on August, 29th and 30th 2014 at the DEAD MANS CURVE 3rd Annual Wild Hot Rod Weekend in Mahwah NJ. Customers and friends of Tony Monopoli and the B&T Automotive Speed Shop that opened its doors in Palisades Park NJ, in 1964. The shop transitioned into a Nationally Known Entity through 1986. B&T’s former customers, first and second generation family members reunited, gathered and caught up, chatted, minced and mingled at the B&T Reunion tent and the presentation. The B&T Shop is long gone but those memories live on forever. The Dead Mans Curve event provided a special parking area for Cars that were built and owned by attendees. The Group Photograph includes the Company Sign that was hung in the late 60’s and withstood the test of time as the centerpiece to the reunion itself. Tony Monopoli presented a back in time B&T Slide Show Presentation on Friday & Saturday. Attendees brought and shared photos and memories of the 5 decades. B&T evolved through those times from a small town Speed Shop to one of the earliest niches, as “B&T” Street Rod City, Chrome Makes It. Both provided Mail order services worldwide of off the shelf and already chromed Street Rod and Show Car products which earned Tony the Monica “Antonio-Chrome-a-Lione”. Full service Appraisals were started circa 1965 which progressed into AVM Automotive Appraisals and Consulting along with The International Automotive Appraisers Association that was founded in 1994 and the AutoMediators Association founded in 2007.
