" 'Tony Avenso, who said he is a New Jersey dealer in high-end customized classic cars, primarily Cadillacs, and has sold Ramírez five classic cars, said Ramirez has plans to join him at the Atlantic City Classic Cars Auction at the Atlantic City Convention Center, which begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday.

Ramírez is planning to be there Saturday, said Avenso, who said he has been talking to Ramírez on a daily basis this week. Ramírez had not finalized plans, Avenso said, because of his mother’s medical condition. 'His mother had surgery, then was taken back in [to the hospital],' Avenso said.

‘‘ 'There’s no question he was coming up,' Avenso added. 'He was flying up and staying with me in Atlantc City. He knows his good cars and his bad cars.' ’’ -- 2.21.07, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
