(Photos by Bob Chiluk and Greg Rourke – Words by Bob Chiluk) – Talk about an American hot rodding success story! A couple of guys have dream jobs building high end street rods, hot rods, and customs when an opportunity comes up to buy the very business that they are employed at. Obviously a no-brainer, right?.
Randy, Dan, and Paul knew a good deal when they saw it so they skrimped, scratched and cashed in all the chips that they had to buy the shop. Since Midwest Hotrods already had a loyal following and was a respected business, their next step was to take it up several notches, and boy did they ever! What they built besides the cars is a 23,000 square foot full shop and 2000 square foot parts store. This place defines, “full service”.
All metal fab, paint and body, interior, and chassis dyno work are done in house. These guys do it all. Weather you need a gauge replaced in your classic car or a Riddler award contender built they can do it, no problem. Thursday nights at the shop (www.midwesthotrods.com) are open to all to come in and browse the shop.Randy gave us a personal tour and we will bring you along through the photo gallery linked below. Check it out!
Thanks to Bob and Greg for the killer tour of Midwest Hot Rods!
