It’s the ideal place for their clients to store exotic and classic automobiles. Rick also offers Brokerage Services for cars, limited and rare race collectibles, automobilia and petrolina related items that are for sale. His entrepreneur nature started at the early age of 6 when he sold his pencil-drawn pictures of early model Ford roadsters to fellow classmates for their lunch money. In addition to The Vault, trucking has been Rick’s primary business for the last 42 years working for 3 large corporations and as an independent salesperson for the last 12 years.
Rick is on the Board of Directors of the Gasparilla Concourse, an annual event that takes place in April. He has been instrumental in gathering business owners and fellow philanthropists to donate good and services for their annual charity event. Through those efforts, they have donated over $20,000 to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
A shout out to Joanne Pistorious and her husband Brando who introduced me to Rick. They are the founders of the Gasparilla Concours and both are past guests here on Cars Yeah.
