Richard Reina, the oldest of 3 boys, was born on Staten Island, NY to a German father and Italian mother. Dad loved all kinds of cars and passed his passion on to his oldest son. After a liberal arts education consisting of high school in Manhattan and college on Long Island, Richard entered the car business and has never looked back. At that same time, he purchased his first “collector” car, a 1957 Ford Skyliner retractable hardtop/convertible. Numerous jobs and numerous cars later, he continues to toil part-time in the automotive industry, and continues to challenge himself by owning an Italian car.
