He was born in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn on April 11th 1962 to the parents of Joseph and Marie Rivieccio and was the youngest of 3 children. Vincent, better known as Vinny, had a passion for cars and was gifted with an ability to fix any issue. This led Vinny to open Auto Magic Collision shop in Park Slope Brooklyn in 1983. 1983 was the same year he married his wife Leanora and started his own family with 4 beautiful children, 2 sons and 2 daughters. Vinny took the family out of Brooklyn to settle down in Staten Island in 1990.
