Jeff Perez

Miami born BoldRide Content Director, Jeff began writing and attending auto shows while still in high school. As much as he loves the run-of-the-mill Italian supercar, his dream would be to compete in a bare-knuckle rally stage behind the wheel of a Lancia Stratos. If the classic Lancia ever does make it’s way back into production he will be giving up his soul to own one.

Michael Prichinello

Michael co-owns the Manhattan Classic Car Club. His idea of a dream vacation is flying somewhere to drive for a few thousand miles and, accordingly, he’s racked up close to 500,000 miles driven in his lifetime. That includes five trips to the Nurburgring, and countless other races. While he’s piloted more than 400 different types of cars, his first was a 1991 Trans Am.

Bill Wilson

Bill was born with grease under his fingernails and a socket wrench in his hand. Okay, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But he has nurtured a passion for both writing and for all things automotive during most of his 46 years on the planet. He lives with his wife and a motley crew of dogs, cats, and other furry creatures near Asheville, NC. In his spare time he can usually be found at car shows.
