I haven't been to the Cortez Conversions website in a while, but was pleasantly surprised to see Sal's photo on the home page.....

It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!


Not a day goes by I don't think of Sal. It's only fitting.
Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.-Sal


Tom is a class act the whole way....

I see Philly on a map, I think of Sal. I eat a cheesesteak, I think of eating them after the Penn tour. Perroni....yeah, Sal had them chilling in the snow when I went over there. I wear my yellow Columbia fishing shirt....that's what Sal had on when he picked me up at airport when first we met, and gripped my hand in the 10-ton vise of his grip.


Two solid dudes in my book, Sal and Tom. 
Sal loved Tom's work... we discussed it often.
Thanks for being you,


Three solids...count yourself in there, brother. Flew in to Newark this week and think about your stories every time I see the Freedom Tower.


Are you still here, bro?
Come over!!

Shark Hunter

Brothers in Arms. Solid!!!!!
Sal will never be forgotten.
Life is Good!

I have to agree, Sal will never be forgotten by my family! He was so kind and generous to us.
And, Happy Fathers Day to all you AT dads!!!
Brett and the girls


Looking for a jiggy pic for Jason, and found this!!!! Dan and I at dinner at the Ciarlante's. Cathy took the pic. A fantastic hosting and food, such gracious folks. Of course we got the tour of Sal's cave, shown, as well as his workshop. He gave meold phone 735.JPG  a 29-100 spool out of a drawer full he had, and you can't get it from me for love or money.


send me an email at for questions!



hey, it's been six years this week since I was out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
