When Tony isn't working at the dealership, he leaves his work at work. He often can be found fishing on one of many lakes in Missouri and especially enjoys the Lake of the Ozarks. 

Now lets take you back to Tony in 1990. Tony is a rare bird, he has logged over 1600 sky dives and was also on sky diving competition teams. He once did a team dive formation with 130 people, got to sky dive into Busch Stadium in '82 and his favorite place to dive is the desert. In 1990, his life changed a little bit and Tony decided to settle down, get married and start having a family of his own, so risking his life for a high flying adventure had to go. One day Tony hopes to get back up in the air but for now you can find him on the ground at Jim Butler Chevrolet.
