About Precious Metals
David Young was born and grew up in the Motor City just South of Detroit, Michigan.
Gasoline runs through his veins starting in racing at the Drag Way in Milan, Michigan,
David soon realized not only was this a weekend hobby but a life's passion.
At the age of 19, David made his way back to San Diego, where he met a prominent Car Collector Chuck Swimmer of Charco Construction and The San Diego Collection. David was placed as an entry level shop hand the day the shop first opened. As his personal talents and abilities were recognized he quickly traveled up the chain. He acquired a broad experience and expertise in all aspects of a Classic Car Dealership.
Way back in the 1400's Rick started his career by turning wrenches in Chicago, from
there he moved on to working in odds and ends auto repair facilities. In 1974 he
managed and supervised truck, tractor trailer and heavy equipment repairs with his
partner and friend Gerald Marolda. In 1980 Gerry Marolda bought
a Ferrari road car. He and Rick joined the Ferrari club of Chicago and the Ferrari,
Italian exotic car saga began.
Since that time, he has worked continuously on Italian sports cars. He has restored and repaired some of the most important Vintage sports cars known, His accolades include renown for creating, arguably the finest Ferrari Lusso restoration as noted in the Ferrari market letter.
Started many years ago, Precious Metals began as a personal classic automobile service and restoration facility for a private collection of Lamborghini's and Ferrari's. Over the last 35 years the Staff has gained recognition for their work both by word of mouth and through numerous publications. The demand for the team's services grew and so Precious Metals of San Diego was born.
