Bill Rondello has been involved in the classic car hobby for
over 40 years. Bill bought his first car, a 1967 Dodge Dart
GT, and pulled the engine and had it running before he
could legally drive. Bill enrolled in every high school auto
mechanics class his high school offered.
Born and raised in the Motor City, Bill cruised Gratiot and
Woodward Avenue with many of the 91 cars that he has
owned to date. Bill has worked in the auto industry for 34
years for GM, Chrysler, and currently, the Ford Motor

Over the years Bill has been very involved in many car
clubs such as the Corvair Society of America (CORSA),
the Walter P. Chrysler Club (WPC) as the club newsletter
Editor, the International Mustang Bullitt Owner’s Club
(IMBOC), and currently, a member of the Mustang
Owner’s Club of Southeastern Michigan (MOCSEM). Bill

Museum when it opened in 1999. Bill attends as many car
shows and club events as he can during the year. Bill
