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

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.

Building Someone’s Dream Car Starts With Lots of Questions
September 18, 2015

What’s it like to make someone else’s dream a reality? 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.”




The Best Part of My Overhaulin’ Show: Passionate People
September 11, 2015

Have you ever held down two full-time jobs? That’s what it felt like for me when I was hosting Overhaulin’at the same time as managing my shop. It was a never-ending whirlwind of projects, cars, people, and sleepless nights—but I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world.
