Over the weekend we attended Poor Boys Hot Rods open house in La Habra. Poor Boys is owned and operated by Dan Sobieski who is a former employee of my father. Poor Boys resides in part of the old hot rod shop in La Habra. It was a great turn out. Lots of great looking rides. The food trucks were in full force, the music was pumping, and overall it was a great time. We were excited to get our new catalog in peoples hands and to show off a lot of the new 2013 designs and finishes. Thanks again to Dan and his crew for having us. Hope to be back again next year.

For those of you that remember Dan Sobieski from American Hot Rod he now has a shop that resides in part of my dad’s old shop on Lambert Rd in La Habra. Dan’s shop is called Poor Boys Hot Rods. Don’t let the name fool you cause Dan and his crew are working on some nice high dollar, high performance builds. We are working with Poor Boys on one in particular. It’s a 1969 Camaro with all new ZR-1 suspension and drivetrain. The wheel of choice is our Pro-Touring HR-01. 19×9 up front and 20×12 in the rear. As soon as we were done machining them I press fit them in some rims and brought them over for a test fit. The beauty in dealing with 2pc welded wheels is that you can, if needed, test fit them to insure proper fit. The wheels you see in the pics are just machined. The final wheels will have a brushed center with ceramic black paint in the windows and a polished rim. Stay tuned for more updates on this build.
