Celebrating 50 Years of Mercedes-Benz of Smithtown

May 31st, 2019 by

Competition Automotive Group was founded by championship racecar driver, Joe Buzzetta. Buzzetta became friends with a well-known hot-rod mechanic who owned a repair shop in Smithtown and the two decided to go into business together. They became partners on a car dealership made up of 3,000 square feet of space. In 1970, Buzzetta was prompted to open a dealership, with the idea that he would construct a new building on Jericho Turnpike and upgraded to 8,000 square feet. In his late teens, Buzzetta was working at the auto group as a parts truck driver and worked in almost every job except as a mechanic. In the 1980s Buzzetta and his business partner split their partnership and decided to go their separate ways.
