Recently, the graves of El Tonto again caught the attention of the Spanish media , as a missing accessory was installed. It is reported that the Audi Q5 in front of the grave was not the first choice for funeral cars. Antonio's father's original idea was to choose a Ferrari sports car for him. But his wife retorted, claiming that the Audi Q5 was Antonio's favorite car because he always drove the car. In the end, the family poured the Audi Q5 for Anthony.

Although from the legal point of view, Antonio is an outrageous and extremely desperate gangster, but Antonio is still loved in Pinos, a small town with more than 10,000 residents. It is reported that each time Antonio "returns in triumph", some of the stolen money will be distributed to the local poor residents. After his death, people often spontaneously went to his grave and laid flowers to express nostalgia.
