The Future of Custom Car Design Is Not Yet Written
December 17, 2015


If there was just one thing I could communicate to anyone interested in hot rodding and custom car design, it’s this: there are absolutely no rules when it comes to letting your imagination soar.





Looking Back On SEMA 2015
November 18, 2015


Having been to SEMA so many years in a row, I’m in a pretty good position to notice the changes and trends at the Las Vegas event. Now that the 2015 edition of the show has wrapped up there are a few things in particular that caught my eye.




The Future Of Hot-Rodding: Technology Sets The Imagination Free
October 30, 2015

One of the most amazing things about the hot rod business is that it’s constantly changing. Fresh ideas are always emerging, with new shops and designers getting involved in building cars. Things are different now than they were when I got started, and I’m often asked where I think things might heading in the world of custom cars.

Five Tools for Every DIY Garage
October 19, 2015


I’m often asked what kind of tools I couldn’t live without—the "make or break” equipment that helps me and my team turn out the unique, head-turning hot rods that we’re known for at Foose Design.

You know, for all of the cool gear I have in my shop, on most of the projects I tackle, there’d be no way to get the job done without the basics. Sure, it’s great to have access to state-of-the-art lathes and computer-assisted design programs, but when it comes to what’s in my hands throughout the course of an entire project, it’s really a lot of the same types of tools that you could easily stock in your own garage.

My Dream Project Waiting to Happen: The Deucenberg
October 14, 2015

I don’t get to build every car I dream up. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to take all the wild ideas (and even some of the slow-burning inspirations) that I imagine—and create them in glass, aluminum and steel.





What Does It Take To Build a Ridler Winner?
October 2, 2015

A lot of people ask me what it takes to design a car that’s going to take home top hardware at the prestigious Detroit Autorama. I can tell you that taking aim at the Ridler award—and it is indeed something you have to carefully plan for and execute—requires the utmost commitment from myself as a designer, from the customer who has commissioned the car, and from the team putting everything together.
