Mention the name Mariano Rivera and you would be talking about of the greatest New York Yankee closing pitchers of all time. 

He was unanimously elected to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as part of its class of 2019 in his first year of eligibility. But Rivera has another passion, and that is cars.


The Rivera family owns a Toyota dealership in Mt. Kisco and is opening a Honda dealership in Port Jefferson on Long Island. 


Mariano’s son, Mariano Rivera Jr., also has a passion for cars, and recently opened an auto body shop, Mr. Auto Body, in Chester at 30 Lehigh Avenue. 


Rivera Jr. was born in Panama and now resides in White Plains. The opportunity arose to start his business in Chester and he grabbed it, plus there’s plenty of collision work with all the deer.  


You can’t miss the building with its huge Mr. Auto Body graphic on the front, and at the rear is a mural of his dad’s Ferrari on the wall. It’s definitely an eye catcher. 


Besides collision work, Mr. Auto Body does detailing, paint corrections and ceramic coating to name a few of the other services offered. Mr. Auto Body deals with all types of vehicles, including classic and antique, but says their specialty is paint. The shop uses the PPG brand. 


“I believe that paint is our specialty with our experienced painter and brand of paint to the equipment we use,” Rivera Jr. said. “I am a firm believer in treating the customer as family and customer service and satisfaction is important to me.”
