“Hey, where else are you going to find the Car Song of the Week?” said host New York Vinnie.

You probably know him for sports and his involvement in the community, but one of the other things New York Vinnie is passionate about is cars. Drivetime Radio lets him share that passion with you. He grew up in the automotive business and has been a licensed motor vehicle inspector and a licensed auto and truck damage appraiser.
