From 1970 to 1985, George D'Angelo Sr. was in commercial lending at Barclay's Bank of New York.
Then he purchased a failing Ford dealership, and later obtained an Acura dealership.
His Acura store in Larchmont, N.Y., ranks fourth in volume in the nation. D'Angelo is chairman of the Acura National Dealer Council.
D'Angelo told Special Correspondent Monica Link that about 85 percent of Acura dealers have become involved in the new showrooms and signage program that started a few years ago.
