Hal's Garage and Autobody


Hal's Garage & Auto Body was established in 1959 by Hal Thomas Sr. After leaving the U.S. Navy he settled in Rhode Island. With his extensive knowledge in all facets of automobile repair, which he acquired both as a boy growing up in Alabama and through the Sea Bees and the U.S. Navy, he opened an auto body repair shop in the Peace Dale area.

Over the next forty years, his business expanded to include mechanical repairs and moved to its present location on 171 Old Tower Hill Road in 1967.

Hal's philosophy is simple: Give the client a quality repair at a fair price and stand behind your workmanship. This is how Hal's Garage & Auto Body has built its reputation and its name is synonymous with Quality.

Since 1967 Hal's Garage & Auto Body has grown from a simple service station to a complete service center including a collision repair center that serves southern RI.

In 1987, the second generation was introduced to the motoring public. Hal Thomas Jr.or Harold as everyone calls him, joined the family business after finishing his education at the University of Rhode Island. He, along with his father, holds dear the same philosophies with a strong commitment to client satisfaction.

Hal's has endured the test of time through a commitment to training pertaining to technological developments in automobile design and repair techniques. We have a strong commitment to continuing education and believe in ASE certification for all technicians. Hal's exercises reasonable care for the client's property while it is in our possession.

Middletown, RI 02842


Michael Saccucci was taking cars apart and putting them together from the time he was 13 years old. This son of Italian immigrants, born in Providence, Rhode Island, wanted nothing more than to be in the car business. He became an ace mechanic before entering World War II.

When he returned from the war, he approached the Ford Motor Company about opening a dealership. They responded that a couple had opened a new Lincoln Mercury dealership in Newport and shortly thereafter, the husband passed away. The company wanted Mike to prove himself by running that dealership. The dealership was Cummings Motor Sales on Connell Highway in Newport. Mike soon bought into the company and when Mrs. Cummings died, he bought her shares and became sole owner. He loved people and he loved cars. His wife Cora would come to work with him as their two daughters grew.

In 1967, the Newport Bridge Project took the dealership property on Connell Highway by eminent domain leaving Mike, then 52, and his wife Cora with a decision to make; retire or relocate. They decided to relocate to 5 acres of property on the West Main Road in Middletown and rename the dealership Saccucci Lincoln Mercury, Inc.

The business thrived as Mike and Cora made sure to deliver excellent service, non-pressure sales, a fair price and a comfortable environment for employees and customers. Their motto was and still is " our reputation is your protection " and they wanted their customers to feel good about their purchase. They passed this dedication along to their two daughters, Barbara and Carol. The girls would spend time working at the dealership after school so that they would understand all aspects of the business.

Barbara studied teaching but came to work at the dealership in 1974 when teaching jobs were scarce. Carol became an attorney and set up her legal practice at the dealership. It was important to all of them to continue to work together. The dealership took the Honda franchise in 1976. Since Mike's passing in 1983, Cora, Barbara, and Carol have continued to honor his memory by operating the business using his philosophy.

Saccucci remains a family owned and operated dealership to this day. Currently there are there generations of Saccucci's at the dealership everyday. Barbara's son Gardiner (CIO), and Carol's son Michael (Sales Manager) continue in their grandfather's footsteps.
