apparently Cody left the shop as well. He was the apprentice that they've had for years at OCC. He went to MMI and graduated, then came back to work for them. But, I guess he's with Vinny now.

Vinny always seemed like a straight up guy that knows his stuff.
Hope he does well for himself.

did a search on google using 'occ vinnie' and found out he left in december and opened up a shop called V Performance where they build cars. supposedly it was about royalties he didnt get while mickey was, only because he was a family member.

good for him. do all that hard work for the shop and for tv and not get anything for it, that would suck.

Why does that not come as a shock ????

Having said that the main reason I watch it is as a father I'm intrigued by the whole father son/sons relationship.

Good luck Vinny

I haven't watched the show since it switched channels. Vinney and Mikey were my favorites to watch.
