From the time Vinnie was young, he loved to take things apart and put them back together. He rebuilt his first Motorcycle engine at the age of 9 and was taught to work for and repair all of his own stuff.
His teenage years were spent working on and racing cars. His blending of hard work ethic and the love of family began early on in life.
He worked for his father from the young age of 9 until 15 at his father’s gas station/repair shop and then he continued working with his family at his father’s golf course from 16-24 years old.
Wanting to try a venture outside the family’s businesses, Vinnie tried a few different avenues, such as well drilling, truck driving, car audio, and finally auto repair.
In 2001 he married his wife, Melissa, and one year later began working for Orange County Choppers.
Vinnie’s first daughter Vanessa was born a few months later. His twin daughters Ava and Isabella were born in 2006, and he made the decision to leave OCC shortly there after.
In 2007, Vinnie teamed up with Cody Connolly and opened V-Force customs.
Vinnie was asked back to work with Paul Jr. in 2009 for the American Chopper Junior vs. Senior and continued to do that while running V-Force until 2012.
In 2010 Vinnie’s son Vincent was born.
In 2013 Vinnie changed his companies name to DiMartino Motorsports and returned fully to his love of auto repair without the cameras.
His company is currently a thriving automobile, truck, and fleet and service repair shop.
Vinnie is known for being a family guy but those close to him know him as a great cook. His shop often smells like a restaurant as he always cooks his meals in his shop kitchen.
Always remaining close with his family and working alongside them Vinnie and his cousin Joey DiMartino decided to embrace a new idea in 2022 starting DiMartino Industries specializing in apparel and customizing vehicles for giveaways.
During their downtime, you can catch Vinnie, Joey, (and Cody )cooking, riding, and hanging with their families.
He loves to spend his free time on dirtbikes, motorcycles, & snowmobiles with his friends depending on which season it is.
In the past, he’s raced dirtbikes and quads on flat tracks & still races on ice in the winter with his friends.
Joey is very meticulous with everything he does & he loves to build and customize his trucks & toys.
Joey and Vinnie worked together to rebuild and customize Joey’s truck back in 2015, one of Joey’s favorite builds so far.
Joey is extremely driven and hardworking and works with his father, Ralph, running DiMartino Paving in Walden, NY.
