His romantic interests before getting married are not known to media. He never talked about how he met his wife and when he got married. He never shared his struggle with his daughter’s autism in any interview. He was never married, before meeting his wife. None has ever come up to the media to talk about Wayne’s past life.

He never shared any intimate detail about his family life in any interview.


He started his career as a car restorer; taking up his father’s business after him. Today he owns three companies namely, CariniCarozzeria, Continental Auto Ltd, F40 Motorsport. In 2008, he started a small one-hour documentary about buying, restoring and auctioning exotic and rare car models. It drew so much attention that in 2015, the show had its 8th season. In 2008, he wrote to New York Times that he found a car that he loved when he was 16 and bought the same car when he was 52 years. This story sounded very interesting to Jim Astroski. Jim is the chief of Essex TV Groups and he gave the show for Wayne. He has also appeared in a few Discovery Channel shows like Monterey Week and, World’s Most Expensive Cars. His career milestones and future projects are not known to media. After 2015, his show was cancelled. It is not known whether or not he is planning on starting a new show in near future.
