Thanks for all your efforts Johnny. Keep up the good work for those of us too lazy to do it on our own.
To Johnny Monzo and the CAC,
I wish to thank you and the CAC for the help of making my Allante, an Allante of the month, and in providing me with an all important drivers side power seat button cap that had gone missing from my Allante. All I had to do was tell you of my dilemma and you sent me the part without cost to me. All I can say is what a club and how happy I am with my membership and your leadership and knowledge of the Allante.
Thanks so very much. I love my Allanté
and had almost given up hope that I would ever resolve this issue.
It’s been quite awhile but I wanted to let you know the latest chapter in my search to get my Allante radio playing again. You’ll recall that you sent me a replacement receiver a long time ago. Well, I finally got Elmer – the retired GM electronics guy you talked to – to swing by today. He installed the new receiver and the radio works perfectly again. This whole thing took more than six months to get worked out but without you, it would’ve been six years. I thank you and the club for your patience and your assistance.
I also need to let you know how much I wish I could have attended the recent Allante repair event the club held. What I wouldn't give for a local source like that.
Nonetheless, I thank you again and assure you I’ll be a club member as long as there is an Allante or an XLR under me.

I have had this 1992 Allante (87,900 miles) since early 1999, and had been a member of the Allante Club for years until, I am going to say 4 or 5 years ago, I think, I paid a fee of $90.00 to the AAG for three years membership, and the club immediately went way. Glad it is in your hands. I am 72 years old and also have a 2005 XLR with less than 12,000 miles, a 2000 DTS Deville loaded absolutely like new, (93,000 miles) and a 2008 Escalade ESV. My favorite is the Allante. There is not a week that goes by that someone doesn't pay it a compliment.
Hope you are doing well,

Thank you for ALL your assistance over the past three Years.
I/We all love our special vehicles, yet, they can sometimes bring you
to the cliff of " is it worth it"? Then all we have to do is CALL
YOU for the solution. And away we go.

Greetings Mr. Monzo,
Just a quick note to let you know that last week I went to the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. To my utter astonishment on the second floor in the Pininfarina section they had a 1993 Allante in pearl white with the corresponding hardtop. I am delighted to now know that I drive the same type of car (93 Allante pearl white) that can now be seen in a museum. This was a great moment for me since I had always dreamed of owning a car that is “museum” material...
Thank you for taking the time to perform all of the many tasks that you do on behalf of the Allante owners, like me.
Great to meet you and appreciate all the time and effort you spent on my
car. The radio is great and top is working fine. Wish you and yours a great
Dear Johnny and staff,
had a terrible issue with electrical switches that run my windows, door
locks, memory, etc. I took out the whole unit that you instructed me to
and mailed it with all the pieces in a zip lock plastic bag. It is like
my switch blew apart! Anyway, I did as Johnny told me to and within 2
weeks, maybe less, a rebuilt part that looked new, arrived back at my
home in Cleveland, Ohio. Finally my windows, door locks and seats
started to work again. It even had the memory back. I was Allanté-ing
again! You made a tiny disaster in my little world feel all better
again. Thank you Father Allanté Johnny Monzo himself and the Mrs.
included. You are safe in Cleveland Ohio Johnny. You have a pass! Maybe
we'll meet soon. I'd enjoy that.
My sincerest regards,

the e-mails. As I stated earlier in one of my e-mails, based on the
current economy no longer do I have evenings off during the week. I did
make it down to New Jersey a couple of weeks ago to the Allanté club
event, had to promise the wife we would go to AC after the show.
Johnny put on a great event, as usual it was a learning event and the
paintless dent removal guys work on my car that was worth the trip.
I took this picture from a window at my condo, it was an amazing sight. Now knowing how much my husband always wanted to buy an Allanté I called him to the window. He was speechless. If you know of any available please don't hesitate to email me with any and all information.
Hi John, Just
wanted to let you know the car is running great!! Thanks for the good
work and friendly way you do business. I really appreciate it.

P.S Thanks for the detailing too! Mice say that it looks much nicer
My names Bill Conroy and I feel like I already know you. I live in
the Mountains of Vermont, and because I couldn't stand the number of
people that were showing up in NJ every day. I do, however, go home to
visit now and again.
Several years back I was coming back to VT and pulled into a rest
stop on the Jersey turnpike. I forget the name now but it is the first
one north of exit 5. There before my very eyes was this beautiful
Allanté! I had wanted one since the first time I laid eyes on one. Alas,
it was never to be as I am a man of modest means (okay, VERY
modest means). So I let the Idea leave my brain as all good ideas will
in time. Then came the dreaded day. “The Rest Stop Allanté”. I hadn't
seen one in years! But LO! This one was pulling a trailer! A trailer
made from the back half of another Allanté!
Oh cruel world. Who could do such a thing to an Allanté? NOW I KNOW!
It was you! The good thing is it got me thinking about Allanté again. So
recently when coming across some money I should have spent wisely; I
instead bought the 1990 Allanté sitting in the drive.
I flew out to Cincinnati to buy it and drove it back to Vermont.
However I went by way of Maryland and NJ, to visit some friends and
family and show them how I'm going senile. They all agreed I need help.
If only I had found your site before my trip. I would love to visit the
"museum". Also, what this about a $3,500 master cylinder? Why didn't I
know this before I bought the car.
Oh well, the damage is done.
I don't get a lot of time off from work but I sure would like to get
together some time with other senile people and discuss this sick
Just a short intro to me and by the way......I Love the site!

Thanks to John Monzo for solving our battery drain problem. When we had John work on our car last summer for a rough running
problem (we had to trailer the Allante to NJ), he found that the brake
lights would come on by themselves. He replaced the brake light switch.
Now, even with the 14 degree cold here in VA, the battery still holds a
charge and the car starts right up. More importantly, the car is running
better than it has in years, and the gas mileage is in the 24 to 25 mpg

My wife and I
were so proud of your terrific presentation on PBS's nationally
syndicated program, "Motor Week" last night. You looked and sounded
terrific, and the panning shot of our beloved vehicles resplendent in
color, shine, and style, was top of the line. Thank you for
representing "The flying Italian Cadillac" with such intelligence and

Wanted to let you know the box came today and wouldn't you know it --
it's raining. How is that for timing! Thanks for everything, I really
appreciate it. You Make owning an Allanté fun.
About done, detailed the car both inside and out, took care of the SDD
error according to your instructions. Just completed putting the
patches on the top. Colene is sewing them tomorrow and we leave Friday
afternoon for the show at Virginia Beach. The carrier for the hard top
worked like a charm, I cleaned it up and replaced the wheels and we were
ready to go. Framed the picture and put it in the garage near the car
and we are all set. Thanks John for all your help, I will let you know
how we do at the show, car runs like it just came off the showroom floor
and looks like a million bucks. Colene and I purchased hats (I am not a
hat guy) had the top down and off to the beach we went cruising, I lost
at least ten years and loved every minute of it.
Best thing I ever did for myself......
the tip on the toggle switch, (located under the boot well) worked just
like it should and locked the rear of the soft top, enjoying the
Thanks for being on the other end.
