Steve Strope from Pure Vision in So Cal. Had to look up the name of the show I forgot it. The show is called Hand Built Hot Rods. I'd heard his name here and there but didn't realize how big a player he is. Small shop, a few guys and cars at a time. Could take three years to get the car. Mostly hot rods and restomods but the restomods I've seen out of his shop are classic looking, including the interiors but with all the rest modern stuff. You could look at it and think it was a car from 1969 but once you looked at the dash and drove it it would be apparent what it was. He contracts the paint and upholstery out and at least on the TV show used the same guys for each build. The designs and ideas are his and most all the mechanical comes from his place in Simi Valley.

67 Hardtop, brought it back to a driver
