My obsession for cars started in 1978 when my father purchased an orange 1978 BMW 320i for my mother so she can learn to drive stick shift. There is something about me that I couldn’t leave any car alone. I had to modify every car I got my hands on. Even if it just rolled off the dealership lot. When I was 18 years old my VW GTI G60 was so unique that it attracted the attention of European Car Magazine, (an American automotive enthusiast magazine published by The Motor Trend Group) to come out and feature my car in their magazine. At the age of 16 years old I entered my VW GTI into my first Autocross and I never looked back. I went on to win many 1st place finishes. In 1991 I earned my Time Trial License then in 1992 I earned my Competition License where I was competing at Lime Rock Park, Pocono International Raceway and Bridgehampton Race Track. In 1994 I joined the Last Minute Racing team which was campaigning a BMW e30 M3 in the SCCA Pro Racing circuit. My automotive career led me to start an automobile leasing and brokerage firm that catered to high net worth clients. After a long run I moved on to another passion, working for a classic and air cooled Porsche specialist. Now I feel at home at Gaswerks Garage Where I describe it as “Porsche Heaven.”

My family did not have “traditional” family outings, growing up and always yearned to be at track, rally or councours events. Most of my childhood was spent in New York City area and surround. Our “home” track was and still is Lime Rock Park, where many of my earliest and fondest memories exist of my father in his Porsche 356 Speedster and my mother in her Jaguar XKE (both acquired from Max Hoffman). As I entered my teenage years, I was eager and driven to the point where I seeked out a family friend, Mr. Chinetti and asked to be hired. The very next weekend, I found myself in Mr. Chinetti’s garage and barns cleaning up the NART collection. All the while, I was learning about each car as I worked on them. It is easy to learn when you want to. The valuable information learned has been an asset to me, going forward. My experience led me to wholesale, corporate and the inevitable front lines, working with the likes of Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche, Ferrari and others to create long term client relationships, curating collections, all the way to your first car. I have more than 25 years of classic/collector/hyper/super/vintage/collectible and race car completed transactions and look forward to many more.

Favorite vehicle: Porsche 993 Turbo S

I’ve had a love for all things automotive from a very young age. My father was a car enthusiast and had fostered my passion with some great cars while I was growing up, including a 1967 Mustang. We would go to Lime Rock Park in Connecticut for the historic races every year and sit on the hill in front of “Big Bend”, where I got to watch the likes of Paul Newman, Peter Gregg, Sam Posey and John Fitch. Since entering driving age, I have always tried to have something interesting. Starting with a 1988 Honda Civic Si, with many Audis afterwards. I enjoy Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and anything exotic. I’ve been with Gaswerks Garage since the beginning and look forward to assisting in the purchase of one of our classics or taking on a full project car. Being around these cars is a dream job for me and I wake up excited to go to work every single day!

Favorite vehicle: 5000QV Countach

As with most people reading this, I eat, breath and sleep cars. My father was an American Muscle driver, my 3 Uncles were Porsche owners. I found myself open to all makes and I have a love affair with each at different points in my life. Mustangs, BMW M, Lancer Evolution, Porsche, AMG, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati have all passed through my garage or are still in there, somewhere! There may be a few Ducatis in the back as well. Having restored a ’74 911 2.7 Sportomatic with my brother led to the most interesting bonding situation. Ultimately, we are all involved with Gaswerks because cars pump through our blood. I look forward to handling your rides as they come through our Team’s experienced hands.

Favorite vehicle: BMW E30 M3

A love of cars passes through all of us at one time or another. For some it never dissipates. I started off my early years with a Z28 Camaro and transitioned into the Golden-Era BMWs. Having owned an E30 M3 and multiple E39s (including the M5) has led to my appreciation for German engineering. Being involved with the Gaswerks team helps me satisfy the vintage car wants that I may not have the space for at the moment. Please let us know how we can help you with your projects small or large and we will aim to keep you in that driver’s seat for as long as possible.

Favorite vehicle: 1968 Porsche 911R

My love of engineering and mechanics was inspired by watching my engineer based father and uncles. As I absorbed and learned from many different experiences growing up, I was able to turn these interests into accomplishments into a career I truly enjoy. This same love I had as a small child fuels my passion for cars that remains instilled in me today. With 30 plus years learning the automotive craft and 25 years of experience as a professional Porsche technician, I am able to offer expertise to those who could benefit. I have enjoyed working with all types of people, and cars, and their unique stories led me to establish a specialization on air-cooled Porsches. Throughout my years in this trade, I have been fortunate and able to create multiple connections all over the country.

Favorite vehicle: Lamborghini Countach

I fell in love with cars when I was a young boy. I had a calendar on my bedroom wall with photos of a different sport car each month. When I got the month with the Lamborghini Countach photo I never changed that page of the calendar for years until I got a new calendar one year with pictures of all Lambos on it. I began my career in the auto industry in 2008 at Prestige BMW. That was over 10 years ago and I have been a part of the Prestige family ever since. I have been a sales and finance manager at Prestige with the BMW, Mercedes, McLaren, Lamborghini and Gaswerks Garage brands. I enjoy the interaction of dealing with people and cars. I also enjoy how the “love of cars” can connect people in all walks of life. These are the things that keep me glued to the car community.

Matthew Provenzano

Restoration & Service Technician

I’ve been with Gaswerks Garage for 2 years. Since I was young, I’ve been intrigued by classic cars. I went to a technical high school to learn as much as I could about automotive and got my first job for a drag racing team. When I finally saved up enough money to get my first car, I knew it had to be a classic so I got a 1967 Camaro. I took the car everywhere and began to start the restoration. At a show I saw a 356 Speedster. My jaw dropped, the car was stunning. My senior year of high school I went for a job interview at Gaswerks Garage and have been there ever since. I now have my dream job learning everything I can about these timeless cars.

Restoration & Service Technician

My first encounter in the automotive field came in 1999 where I began my first job at Maple Auto repairs in Fair Lawn NJ. I would work after school every day to buy the car of my dreams. On my 18th birthday I purchased a 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16v. and have been in love with German cars ever since. After high school graduation, I attended Bergen Community College where I majored in mechanical engineering. Following that I attended Lincoln Technical Institute in Mahwah, NJ to turn my passion for cars into a career. In 2005, I was hired as a technician at Prestige BMW in Ramsey, NJ where I became a factory trained BMW master technician and where the BMW E30 M3 caught my eye for the first time. After working at BMW for 10 years, I became the shop foreman at Prestige MINI and later became the Service Manager. One year ago, I began working at Gaswerks Garage and have not looked back ever since. Classic BMW's and air-cooled Porsches are not only what i am passionate about, they are a way of life.
