Carini is no stranger to vintage car buffs across the country and around the world. His show, “Chasing Classic Cars” aired on Velocity is must-see viewing for millions of fans each week as he seeks out and restores some of the most interesting and unique classics available.
With a lifetime of experience in automobile restoration under his belt, Carini’s lengthy resume includes body and paint work on rare car collections owned by the likes of David Letterman, tennis great Ivan Lendl and the DuPont Family. He’s been featured in The New York Times, numerous automobile magazines and starred in two hour-long television specials for Discovery’s HD Theater Channel, Monterey Week and The World’s Most Expensive Cars.
Carini’s three companies in Portland, Connecticut see some of the world’s finest cars pass through his garages: F40 Motorsports buys and sells vintage and classic automobiles; Continental Auto Ltd is a collision shop specializing in high end and exotic car repair, and Carini Carozzeria is the restoration shop where Wayne spends most of his time. While he loves restoring cars to perfection, Carini’s personal preference for unrestored, original cars shines through in the Chasing Classic Cars TV series. Often shown in the elite “Preservation Class” at concourse events nationwide, Carini’s increasingly rare cars are the focus of his private collection, with an emphasis on his first love, the Ferrari.
Meet authors Tom Cotter and Bill Warner following the seminar by Wayne Carini. Their book will be available for purchase in the AACA Museum retail store for $34.99.
Cotter and Warner take readers of Cuba’s Car Culture on a whirlwind tour of all things automotive, beginning with Cuba’s pre-Castro car and racing history and bringing us up to today’s lost collector cars, street racing, and the challenges of keeping decades-old cars on the road. The book is illustrated throughout with rare historical photos as well as contemporary photos of Cuba’s current car scene. For anyone who enjoys classic cars, from old Chevy Bel-Airs to Studebakers to Ford Fairlanes, a cruise around Cuba will make you feel like a kid in a candy store.
