My name is Dave Lohr and I was convinced at an early age that I was placed on this earth to cut up and build HotRods. My fate was sealed after signing up for High School autobody class. I was hooked and lucky to have had a great teacher that let me do what ever I liked. Attending that class is the only reason I graduated - it was my driving force to not skip school. I also spent a lot of time at the local DragStrip. I joined the Army soon after High School and found myself jumping out of perfectly good airplanes as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division. Which filled that need for speed I was always craving for. My time in the Military helped mold me into what I am today. It instilled a work ethic that I am very proud of.
I have met some key people in my life that have taught me the value of learning on my own and to teach myself how to run all sorts of equipment. My goal has always been to foster the ability to think up an idea, draw it, then build it. To me, thats an awesome freedom to have at your finger tips. My equipment are my best friends. I tend to lean towards the early to mid-sixties dragstrip vibed Hotrods and race cars - a time when every thought was outside the box! Most of my thoughts are inspired by this period and I believe it reflects in most of what I build or think of.
My dream is to build HotRods for a living and I find myself inching torwards this goal. None of this would be possible if it was not for my awsome wife Jennifer and killer daughter little Ellie’s total support and understanding. HotRods consume my every thought… more than they should…
