My wife and I opened Shoreline Fastener & Supply Company in 1979 specializing in automotive and marine fasteners and also selling all types of industrial supplies to the automotive, marine, and manufacturing community. In 1981 we bought out a local construction / outdoor power equipment company called The Tool Crib.
In 1993 we opened a speed shop called AtRo Racing Products, a speed shop that specializes in Dodge Vipers and speed parts. My family started racing back in 1904 and won the first "Climb To The Clouds" hill climb at the Mount Washington Auto Road. Before collage I raced karts & hydroplanes.
While attending college in New Hampshire, I earned a degree in race engine technology. This program was the for runner to the NASCAR Institute. While in college I raced ski boats, SCCA sports cars, and World Karting Enduro Karts.
After college I raced late models and Modifieds before teaming up with Lovetere Motorsports as a crewman and sponsor of a NASCAR team fielding Late Models, Modifieds, & Pro Stocks.http://www.ahexp.com/member/AtRo+Racing
This MG Midget Mk1, Deluxe Model, is 99 % original except for a new white leather interior and red carpet set. It has the optional passenger adjustable seat, the heater, the factory Healey front disc brake conversion, and the Mercury vented wheel covers. This Tartan Red Midget is a California black plate car that is still a positive ground car.
The car was owned by a British car technician, who had passed away, and was stored for over 20 years when I bought it. Everything on the car is in like new condition. All the parts on the car are original OEM, NOS, factory parts with the exception of the mechanical fuel pump being upgraded to a, period correct, SU electric fuel pump. This pump was installed by the previous owner after he installed an aftermarket Street / Race camshaft that does not have the lobe on it that drives the mechanical fuel pump.
I entered the car in two shows during 2013. I tool 1st place at the "Ultimate Restoration Show" in Clinton, CT and a 2nd place at thE "British Cars By The Sea" show at Harkness Park in Waterford, CT. This is a "must see" show along with the British Car Show in Madison, CT on the Town Green in the fall.
