Tatura businessman Jody Vincitorio has been ‘‘celebrating for the last couple of weeks’’, having notched up one year trading as JVs Paint & Panel at 105 Ross St (next to Rob’s Radiators).March 10, 2014 4:35am
Mr Vincitorio has put the tumultuous upheaval from the past — having to suddenly relocate the business from its former Hogan St address — behind him, and has settled in well at the new premises.
‘‘The new location is much better and more suitable than the old one, and we are very happy here,’’ he said.
With just under 30 years of experience in the trade, and with a passion for cars, Mr Vincitorio takes great pride in his work, and ‘‘can take care of all your smash repairs, repaints, insurance work, custom work and detailing for all makes and models, old and new’’ as evidenced by the pictures.
In January 2012 his love for cars was rewarded when his candy-apple green 1971 HQ Holden Monaro, suitably named Choppt which was three years in the making, took all before it at the Summernats in Canberra when it placed in the top 10, claimed third in the body work category, second in the Mild Wild custom category and won the high-impact award, and is still dominating the show scene today with first place awards.
The car also caught the eye of Street Machine magazine at the Summernats, with representatives taking photos of the car for 18 hours to use on the front of their magazine back then.
Along with offsider Mick Truman, Mr Vincitorio said they continued to look forward to a strong business presence in Tatura and welcomed new and old customers.
‘‘As a multi-award-winning panel and paint shop, JVs Paint & Panel will for the month of March, offer a 20 per cent discount off a cut and polish and detailing,’’ he said.
