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.

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.

It’s a rare gift—one that I’ve been fortunate to bestow upon every customer who comes to my shop with a desire to see their vision become a real-life dream car. Of course, it’s not as simple as opening up a catalog, pointing at some parts and paint colors, and saying, "Let’s go.”
