Just got word Vinnie Tarrantola passed away April 6, 2007 after a lengthy illness. Vinnie owned and operated Vitar Transmissions in Brooklyn, NY. Vinnie supplied race winning automatics and convertors for the best drag racers on the east coast. Guys like Ray Allen in the Truppi-Kling SS/EA LS6 Chevelle, Bernie Agaman's 71 SS/CA LS6 Vette, Ed Hedrick's 69 Yenko Camaro and Sherwood Allen's Soul Survivor 69 Camaro, all relied on Vitar Transmissions to get the win. Vinnie later sold Vitar and it was re-named Select Performance Transmisions which is still in operation today. Rest in Peace Vinnie.

It's people like Vinnie that shoud get recognition,
for doing something positive for others.

Instead, people like A.N.S. get airtime,
who contributed nothing to this world.

I'll second that.
