HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/3/15 – “This is the car that started all, my obsession for weird and unusual cars,” says Chasing Classic Cars Wayne Carini. “Normal kids, when I was 16 years old, were falling in love with Mustangs and Camaros and stuff. I fell in love with a Hudson. A Hudson Italian, one of only 25 made and mine is the only remaining totally original one left.”
In Chasing Classic Cars, car collector and restorer Wayne Carini uncovers automotive secrets through eight seasons of investigating countless leads and searching old barns, garages and warehouses.
Old cars are brought back to life and taken to auction. There is often a disconnect in what the value Carini sees and what the auction brings. During the first seasons Carini focused on pre-war American classics and European sports cars. In the last few seasons the show has featured American-made racing cars.
Carini’s passion for uncovering untold automotive stories has millions of fans. Carini’s F40 Motorsports shop is one of the top Ferrari restoration shops in the country.
Chasing Classic Cars begins its new season with a one-hour special. Carini and his friend Ralph go on an exceptional chase just north of Saranac Lake, New York, in the Adirondack Mountains, for an all-original 1930 Minerva bodied by Hibbard & Darrin. The car was owned by John Whitney Hawkinson, a recluse who lived for decades in a farmhouse where he amassed a collection of more than 40 classic cars.
Season nine of Chasing Classic Cars, still plenty of timeless cars with fascinating stories to tell.
