Default One of the last speed shops in NJ closing!!!

BBC Bontempo Brothers Compettion, 1539 W Blancke St Linden, NJ 07036 is closing due to the retirement of the brothers.
Amazing time capsule of a place. They were the best. You could spend hours just standing in the front lobby staring at the walls.
I had them do the rear ends in my Trans Am 15 years ago and my Cuda last year.
The parts they have stored away are astounding. Looks like they are selling out all of their stuff.

Retirement sale set for second and third week of Jun 2022

My local speed shop closed a couple years ago. They did work on my '67 Camaro and '55 Chevy and I was always happy to write the check. Super competent and close by. Now it's a NAPA.

So many great parts in those pics, so sad it is closing. I never knew about this being a bit more north NJ then I travel too, but I wish I knew about this place earlier!

It's an amazing place. The back garage area/machine shop has floor to ceiling racks of vintage engines, transmssions, and rear ends. The last time I was there, one of the brothers asked me if I could help him to ID a "hemi" A-833 four speed transmission he had. He thought it came out of a hemicuda. It still had the VIN stamped on the side and we determined that it was an 18-spline A-833 that came from a Lynch Road built, 440 B-Body.

"Our Retirement/Business Closing Sale will be held on June 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th from 9 AM-3 PM.
EVERYTHING IS FOR SALE! Motors, transmissions, NOS GM parts/used GM parts, 4 speed parts, brackets, pulleys, mounts, trim, differential parts......

My engine builder just passed away after a short battle with dementia. Most precision oriented guy I have ever met. Didn’t deserve it. Had a tattoo done of his Monza funny car. RIP Ric Deschner.

Wow, sure wish I was closer to check out that sale. And, what a sad deal to see another shop closing down.
