Nevada Auto Sales, Inc., was co-founded in January 1968, by Colorado native Mike Bonicelli and his father Joe. Mike still operates the dealership at the same busy location on south Nevada Avenue in Colorado Springs. He was named State Quality Dealer in 1994,the same year he became president of the 900-member Colorado IADA. A race car driver since the early 1970's, Mike owned a
NASCAR Winston Series race team. His wife, Sharon, runs the couple's 40-acre
horse ranch, and trains and shows horses with their daughter, Mischa. Mischa is the mother of their granddaughter, Madison. They also have a son, Marcus.
Mike has an active history with NASCAR Winston Racing Series and cars in general. His most recent stock car was a 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. He ran the Busch Grand National Circuit in the South and East from 1985 to 1987, and dabbled in the NASCAR Southwest Tour Division in the late 1990's.
Nevada Auto Sales stocks over 125 preowned vehicles including cars, trucks, vans, 4-wheel drives, conversion vans, commercial vehicles and the occasional motor home. The price range is very reasonable, $10,000 or less, with the average price at about $7,000. Mike's goal is to help every customer buy a vehicle, regardless of his or her financial situation. The dealership has relationships with many different finance companies, banks, and credit unions, and helps about 95% of its customers with financing.
Mike Bonicelli is a proven leader in the Colorado auto industry, whose greatest concern is helping those who need it most get a vehicle of their very own. Through his vast knowledge and experience, he has the drive to make it happen!
