Vinnie Speaks Out on His Future with the NEW American Chopper.
When reality television was a rather new concept and there weren’t too many automotive shops with cameras all around them, American Chopper was one of the pioneers. Many would agree that, in the heyday of reality television, when it was first getting its wheels underneath of it, the show was one of the first to really get this genre up and rolling as far as the gearhead corner of reality TV. However, before long, the show would eventually lose some steam and find its way off of the air, leaving everybody from the Orange County Choppers bike shop to go in their own separate ways and figure out how to live life after American Chopper.
With Vinnie DiMartino being one of the fan favorites of the show, fans who remember the original fondly have been wondering and asking what exactly his fate would be with the reincarnation of American Chopper. As he is yet to appear on screen with the return of the show, inquiring minds have been wondering what’s up.
When exactly is he going to make his way back? Well, if you ask Vinnie, unfortunately for fans of this character, he has no plans on an immediate return to the show, however, he hasn’t ruled out such a return. In fact, he even tells us that Paul Jr. has, in fact, reached out with the attempt to get him back in front of the cameras in some capacity.
Vinnie seems to be having some pretty good success with DiMartino Motorsports and doesn’t see himself dropping that to be a full-time reality personality again but would consider making an appearance on a couple of episodes if it “makes sense” or perhaps appearing on the show part-time.
After setting up his own shop and being successful for all of these years following the show, it really does follow with a reasonable logic that he wouldn’t want to come back right away at the drop of a hat. However, if we were to make an educated guess, we would probably say that it won’t be long before we see him back on American Chopper in some capacity, even if it isn’t in his traditional role.
If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that everyone has a price!
