Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle Skunkworks

With our 10 year anniversary, we are proud to announce the formalization of our Race Car Division as the Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle Skunkworks. Since the beginning, we've built 1964 and earlier hot rods and customs or any year race car. The race car division has always been a little under the radar. We've consistantly built cages and suspension in drag car Camaros, and road racing Porsches and muscle cars. It was our best kept secret. We joked internally that it was the "Skunkworks"…. top secret stuff that goes mad stupid ridiculously fast! It seemed only natural to expand that work into something more visible to our customers and fans around the world. The first car to come from the new Race Car Division will be the Violent Valiant. We'll be announcing the 2nd car in March. We're all very excited about the expansion of the Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle brand and look forward to the future building killer hot rods. mind blowing show rods and purpose built race cars into our next decade.
