Concho: Concho is the head mechanic on the estancia. De Niro hired him after he caught him trying to steal one of his most expensive sports cars. While waiting for the police, De Niro engaged Concho in conversation, in Spanish. He was greatly impressed by the young man’s knowledge of automobiles in general and of his fleet of vehicles in particular. They both shared a love of finely made machines. By the time the police arrived, De Niro had dropped the charges and offered Concho a job as mechanic. Within a year he was put in charge of De Niro’s entire fleet of vehicles. Concho had a small team assigned to him, all of them family members of his. Together they maintained all of De Niro’s sports cars, SUVs, one stretch limo, off-road vehicles, farm tractors and equipment, trail bikes, motorcycles, boats - De Niro owned three, a luxury yacht he kept docked in Newport Beach, CA and a speed boat and fishing boat he transported back and forth to Lake Mead, jet skis, as well as De Niro’s Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible, his Bentley Azure Convertible Mulliner and his favorite, a midnight blue (with white racing stripes) Shelby GT500 Mustang that Carroll Shelby’s Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas rebuilt into a 725 hp “Super Snake.”
