    I'm sorry to hear, we were pretty good friends for a few years when I lived in 1000 Oaks. Watched after his house once when he and Fumiko were out of town on business.

    Sorry to hear of his passing. He gave me a tour once of the parts he had stored. It was pretty amazing, the amount of cool things he had.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of Al´s passing. His giant FAZA book was an inspiration to me. I wrote him once, and recieved a prompt reply in his handwritting. A One Man Army, indeed.

    Rest In Peace, Al

    Anyone who has tried to squeeze a little extra performance out their Fiat owes Al a debt of graditude.

    His spirit will live on in this forum

    I first met Al Cosentino in 1978 when I lived in Florida and he had his shop in Daytona Beach. One of the most knowledgeable Fiat and Abarth guys around. RIP Al, you will be missed.

    My depest respect and sympathy goes out for Al Cosentino and his family. He is certainly a legend and was a talented and colourful man.

    I never met him but Al Cosentino sounded like quite a character.

    Kevin, Hopefully you can pass on our condolances...

    to Fumiko and his family.

    I think there are many of us that have enjoyed "knowing" Al from afar as well as admiring his skills as a driver and innovator... and especially as a CHAMPION for the little guy.

    I'm sure many of us would feel privileged to attend any services to honor and celebrate his life... and would appreciate knowing when and where.

    May he rest in peace... but I have a feeling he'll be stirring up "trouble" wherever he is...
