About the author

Richard Reina

Richard has been an auto enthusiast since the age of two when his dad taught him the difference between a Chevy and a Ford. After a childhood spent building car models while his siblings watched TV, he decided to make a career of it, working for the U.S. importer of a major European auto manufacturer for over 20 years. During that time, Richard held a variety of service and technical positions within the company, and even got to tour a few car factories in Europe.

At present, to satisfy his love of anything Italian, he owns a 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia coupe. On the days when the Alfa is being serviced, he enjoys his first-generation Mazda Miata (but both get stored away during winters). Richard is also passionate about music, especially classic rock and especially the Beatles. He currently works as the Product Training Director at CARiD.com, an aftermarket automotive retailer.
