Olindo was born and raised in South Florida and went to high school at Cooper City High. He later attended Syracuse University and this opened the door to a wonderful career.
After graduation Olindo played in the NFL for 17 seasons and was elected “ALL PRO”. He first played for the New York Giants, then 10 years with the Miami Dolphins. Later he played for the New Orleans Saints, the Seattle Seahawks, the Carolina Panthers and the Chicago Bears.

After his career in the NFL, Olindo was excited to have an opportunity to be an owner, since he was originally a customer of Klassic Rides. He has always had a passion for cars and his love for them includes; classic Muscle cars, Resto-mods and select imports. At Klassic Rides, he is currently an owner, but also takes an active part in the business being involved in sales and marketing.

Olindo also keeps very busy being involved in many charities such as; United Way, Red Cross, St. Jude, Cancer Research, and, since 1999, has been an active participant in the charitable organization of YATC (Youth Automotive Training Center). The YATC teaches, at risk youth, automotive skills and life skills in the hopes of enabling them to have a bright future. Since Olindo’s partnership, Klassic Rides has been thrilled to employ one of the YATC graduates.
