I have owned/operated Alfissimo alone since 1998. My wife now helps with some aspects of the business. We exclusively an Alfa Romeo Parts house Supplying all parts from the hard to find up to new Performance parts for your 4C or Giulia, etc...
I started Alfissimo International out of a love for cars, a need for a job and not wanting to pay inflated prices on parts or service from the dealers or parts suppliers in the US. I started this business in a rented garage in college with no money. I worked on no stock and just ordered parts when my customers needed them. Since then, I have a massive stock, have gone through about 7 websites and I am making somewhat of a living. I think I am close to where I want to be but not there yet. It’s always changing. The internet and social media have added another task to the mix but I am on top of it making sure my customers new and old know what's available.
I grew up in San Diego and Torrance CA with a stint in Flagstaff AZ (28 years). I got this car bug from my Father. You could always catch him and I in the garage working on his 1955 Austin Healey 100m BRG, 280 zx or whatever. In-fact tinkering with anything mechanical, to talking about car design, to architecture was what we did together. The Austin-Healey was the car that got me hooked. Then the GTV6 came out and we drooled over it. In-fact my dad put a deposit on one. 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 love of engineering and car knowledge/sense (and loads of other random knowledge) to me. Literally the smartest dude around. (James L. Minos 1925-2017- RIP Dad!!)
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. If you add too much it can ruin it, it's a sweet balance, this includes mechanical components. I am very simplistic and original in my approach as long as it slightly varies from OEM but is not perfectly OEM.
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. I do not supply parts that are known to be inferior, even if it’s the only product available.
From the very best parts to the very best Tuning parts. I don’t mess around with cheap parts or useless “upgrades”. You can visit other vendors for those parts!
Feverishly adding 4C, Giulia and Stelvio parts to our line-up. From OEM parts to Tuning parts of the highest quality.
Here is what I offer, excellent customer service, excellent pricing, if it's not please tell me and I will do my best to meet or beat. What you also get in the client service area, a personalized and thoughtful approach focusing on your needs/wants. If you don’t really need it. I will tell you!
The future for myself and Alfissimo is to stay small and specialized as I believe growing, offering everything for every car is not going to sustain a quality of service/selection that I want (Again, see other vendor’s). I am growing in other ways, such as eventually adding tuning programs of our own. It's a never ending learning and changing process. I am never perfectly set in the way things are.
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...
