Wayne Carini Net Worth
Wayne Carini Net Worth: Wayne Carini is an American master car restorer who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. Wayne Carini is a car enthusiast whose interest in cars was piqued at age nine when he took his first ride in a 1960 Rosso Chiaro 250 SWB Ferrari. Since the times of learning the art of Ferrari restoration from his mentor Francois Sicard—a former racing mechanic and a Ferrari expert from the east coast—Wayne has been the owner of three companies in Portland, Connecticut: F40 Motorsports, Continental Auto Ltd. and Carini Carozzeria. Though Carini never went looking for a career in reality television, the opportunity came knocking when producers came across his name in a New York Times piece, and 'Chasing Classic Cars' was born in 2008. The show follows Carini season after season as he wheels and deals across the country. Though Carini never doubted his passion for classic cars, he says he came to do what he does almost by accident in that he started working for his father's shop in grade school, sweeping floors for $5 a week, went on to college to become a teacher, but ended up stepping into his father's shoes in 1973. Carini also has a passion for getting young people involved in collecting and restoring classic cars, stating on his own website that he fears that without the engaging of young people, he fears the art of collecting classic cars will become extinct. Carini resides in rural Connecticut in a log home with his family. He is an avid supporter of the cause for autism, an incentive that arose from his own daughter's diagnosis at an early age.
