Hello, I am Jason Minos, I have owned and operated Alfissimo for 20 years, alone.
Here's the story, I started Alfissimo out of a love for cars, a need for a job and not paying inflated prices on parts or service from the dealers or parts suppliers in the US. I started this business in my garage in college with no money. It has snowballed since. I think I am close to where I want to be but not there yet. I am shifting gears again to offer up service and restoration work in the future when we relocate back to Southern CA.
Some background: I grew up in San Diego CA & Torrance CA always working with my father in the garage on his 1956 Austin Healey 100m BRG. Tinkering with anything mechanical to talking about car design to architecture. The Austin- Healey was the car that changed everything. My father, a pioneer in the aerospace industry (General Dynamics/Convair 55'-97'), designing and building rockets from the Atlas to the Space shuttle, passed this engineering knowledge/sense to me.
Creating a masterpiece from a stock car, both aesthetically and mechanically is what drives me. I am bit of a perfectionist when it comes to styling a car. I am very simplistic and original in my approach. One of my first cars was a VW MK1 Golf (GTI), what a car to learn on and a blast to drive.
PARTS! YES! It's what I have been doing for so long. There is something exhilarating about supplying parts that I have found in the crevices of the earth. Supplying Alfa parts is a challenge and it's what gets me up in the mornings. If I can't find it then I am not doing my job.
I strive to provide only 100% Original Parts at all times or the highest quality after-market, Reproduction parts and accessories available. In the near future I am planning on more reproduction plastic/metal/rubber parts for 164, Milano/75, GTV6 and Giulia (105/115) to the new 952 Giulia.
What I offer in the client service area is a personalized and thoughtful approach.
The future for myself and Alfissimo is to stay small as I believe growing is not going to sustain a quality of service that I want. I am growing in other ways, such as moving back to maintenance and restoration which I prefer to be doing. I am expanding in what I do and how I do it, it's a never ending learning process. I am never perfectly set in the way things are.
We are moving back to Southern CA in the next year (18'-19') which will give me more of what I am looking for.
Please call or e-mail us anytime with technical questions or advice or ordering. I am here to help you with your Alfa needs. My goal is to keep your Alfa Romeo on the road and looking great for many years to come! This means I I go far and beyond to try to carry every part possible, rare, new or used for any Alfa Romeo.
If I do not have it, I will work hard to provide it to my clients!
(Even if it takes a little time, I love the challenge)
