From a young age, Dan was drawn to almost anything with two to four wheels. In high school, Dan attended vocational school to gain skills in a career he was driven by. Once graduating high school, Dan worked in a dealership body shop until he decided to open his own shop in 1979, never looking back. Dan began by painting race cars and completing award-winning Ferrari restorations. In 1990, Dan took his personal project, a 1932 Ford Roadster to Detroit Autorama, where it was awarded The Ridler Award. In the mid 1990's, Dan developed a relationship with Duraliner, where he built multiple custom SEMA trucks that were awarded multiple Ford Motor Company design awards. This developed into a working relationship with Ford Motor Company, where Dan was hired for over 20 plus years to create cutaway display engines and displays that were showcased around the world. Dan has gotten back into his main passion, where he enjoys the history of hot-rodding. Recreating significant race cars that you can find featured on magazine covers such as The Rodders Journal and Hop Up Magazine. Today, Dan enjoys blending old technology and design with new, which the pioneers would possibly do today.
