COLLECTOR CAR ARCHEOLOGIST WAYNE CARINI RETURNS TO VELOCITY WITH A BRAND NEW SEASON OF "CHASING CLASSIC CARS"

--An All-New Season of CHASING CLASSIC CARS Premieres on Velocity Tuesday, May 7 With Two Episodes at 10 PM & 10:30 PM ET/PT--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Velocity is lifting the hood on season six of the network's signature series CHASING CLASSIC CARS beginning Tuesday, May 7 at 10 PM and 10:30 PM ET/PT with two world premiere episodes. Wayne Carini, host and legendary collector car archeologist, once again leads viewers into the exclusive world of high-end automobile collection where he finds, buys, restores and sells some of the finest, rarest vehicles ever made. The all-new season of CHASING CLASSIC CARS airs every Tuesday night at 10 PM ET/PT only on Velocity.

"Our viewers love the extraordinary, rare cars Wayne manages to find," said Bob Scanlon, senior vice president of Velocity. "What they appreciate even more is Wayne's exceptional knowledge of these vehicles in addition to his straight-shooting sensibility and passion for everything on wheels. It's this combination that makes CHASING CLASSIC CARS one of Velocity's most cherished series."

Season six of CHASING CLASSIC CARS finds Wayne pursuing one-of-a-kind autos in secret stashes-homes, garages and barns-throughout America. Wayne is also meeting with some of the hobby's most respected collectors, restorers and artisans to bring viewers deeper into the elite inner circle of the classic car expert.

In episode one, premiering May 7 at 10 PM ET/PT, Wayne turns to someone from his past who helped him realize a dream of owning a Hudson Italia after 38 years of searching. Now, she has a few more surprises including a Hudson Hornet that might just have Wayne's name on it, for a fair price of course. The annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance kick starts the auto auction season in the U.S. Episode two, premiering May 7 at 10:30 PM ET/PT, follows Wayne as he expertly negotiates the sale of two classic car beauties, a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 190sl and a 280se Cabriolet, during the auction on Amelia Island.

From the timeless BMW Isetta bubble car and Maserati Ghibli, one of the most luxurious sporty vehicles ever created by Italy, to a 1937 Packard Convertible, a 1966 Iso Grifo, a 1966 330 GTC and much more, season six of CHASING CLASSIC CARS is sure to appeal to every viewer's taste in classic automobiles.

CHASING CLASSIC CARS is produced for Velocity by Essex Television Group. Jim Astrausky is series creator and executive producer and Hannah B Lintner is series producer. David Lee and Shaan Akbar are executive producers for Velocity. Robert Scanlon is senior vice president of Velocity.
