OUR FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY!
Master technician Alvaro Collarini began his carburetor business in 1950's in Brooklyn, N.Y. as NEW LIFE CARBURETOR. As Alvaro's expert reputation grew so did his business, and in 1969 Alvaro moved to expanded facilities in Central Islip, N.Y. He renamed the business ALLSTATE CARBURETOR, then guided it's growth for 18 years until his retirement in 1987.
Alvaro's young apprentice took over the business, and using skills learned from the Master, together with his love for innovation and desire to fix and repair what others can not, he took the company to the next level. Changing the name to Allstate Carburetor & Fuel Injection Inc. a proud name known to professionals and enthusiasts worldwide.
From 1987 to current day...Allstate Carburetor is constantly undergoing changes and evolving like its customers. With the onset of our high performance carburetors line back in 1995 ACFI has become a well RESPECTED name at many of the Drag Strips across the country, helping racers break track speed records and winning races.
Today ALLSTATE CARBURETOR & FUEL INJECTION provides the finest custom carbs and carburetor services for Performance, foreign and domestic automotive, marine, and industrial applications.
By the way, that young apprentice to whom Alvaro entrusted the shop way back in '87 is, of course, A.C.F.I.'s Master Carburetor Technician, Jim Wilkom. Stop by the shop and say hello -- you may just run into Alvaro himself. He's 87 years young and still manages to check up on his apprentice from time to time.
