The Kennedy brothers, Joe and Jason, are genuine old school hot rodders. They work in the premises their dad used previously for his restoration work. We pulled up outside a huge pair of closed gates and heard dogs barking. Not sure we were at the right place or welcome, we were about to leave when someone called out – “Come in –don’t mind the dogs”. They were happy for us to walk around.
The brothers build complete cars even painting them on the premises. They were busy prepping a coupe body for paint when we visited. They had some lovely cars including a 32 three-window coupe, sedan and many other early Fords. The workshop also had the accessories you would expect to find in a Californian hot rod shop –Schwinn bikes, surf boards, cola coolers and juke box. You can imagine them surfing before getting to work on their hot rods – the American dream life style.
