It all started when…

This concept of "Style" books was created by noted automotive historian, editor and photographer Richard Lentinello, who has long dreamt of creating a special series of collector-car books for enthusiasts to enjoy and treasure.

Since 1987, when Richard started publishing Carrozzeria magazine, he has become an integral part of the collector-car hobby. Richard has been the editor-in-chief of nine car magazines, including Hemmings Motor News and Hemmings Classic Car, Special Interest Autos, Hemmings Muscle Machines and Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car. Prior to his 20-year career at Hemmings, Richard edited High Performance Pontiac, Muscle Cars, Vette, and High-Tech Performance, He also authored the highly-collectible It's Only Original Once, no longer in print.

When not writing about cars or photographing them, Richard restores them. To date, he has completed several body-off restorations and show-quality paintwork, along with many other aspects of restoration. He has judged at many top concours, including Amelia Island, The Elegance at Hershey, Hilton Head, Greenwich, Bloomington Gold Survivor and, of course, his own Hemmings Concours.
