  • Fortunato Papaleo
    Service Expert

    Hi my name is A.J.
    I have been in the automotive business for almost 25 years. 20 of those years with Armory Garage.  I started out when I was a kid building and riding ATVs and then got into cars when I turned 16.   I love the sound and power of a V8 and making them faster and louder has always puts a smile on my face.

  • Sauro Iardella
    Sales Expert

    My name is Sauro Iardella, I am originally from a small town in Italy (Carrara). I fell in love with Dodge back in 2009 when I first moved to the States and saw my first Challenger, leave it alone when I heard the 5.7 HEMI cold start!!! 
    Forward that six years later I started my adventure at Armory Garage.
    I have been in the Automotive industry for almost seven years and there is not a day that goes by without being impressed by the Dodge brand and it's relentless commitment to constantly push the limits and boundaries when it comes down to performance and styling! 
    I am thrilled to be part of the Power Broker Direct Connect Program and being able to help our Dodge customers and community when it comes down to their POWER needs.
