Rick Love

Vintage Air

I am currently the Executive Vice President of Vintage Air, Inc. and have been with the company since 1995. I have been involved in the industry since the late seventies when I built my first hot rod (a 1940 Chevy Coupe) during my senior year in high school. I am a past Chairman of the Hot Rod Industry Alliance SEMA Council, and remain active with it today. In addition to making this industry my career, I still enjoy it at a hobbyist level. I recently completed a complete rebuild on the ’39 Ford Coupe that I have owned for more than 35 years, and driven literally coast to coast for over 200,000 miles.
