A Day @ The Shop… Cool Cars a Cometh @picturecarwarehouse #moviecars @thebigphotoshow #Hollywood

A lot going on right now at PICTURE CAR WAREHOUSE. Full restorations, movie builds (Which I can’t show here), Personal Celebrity Cars and more. Some going to set, some coming back and some going to The Big Photo Show this May. Photos should be going up on their site shorty. Next week, I’ll be shooting a 5MINUTE DRIVE episode in the 2014 Challenger SRT with Dukes of Hazzard creator Gy Waldron. That should be fun.

But here’s a few rides sitting at the shop in various stages, waiting for a wash to look pretty. Plus, some close-ups of DREDD’S LAWMASTER.

WATCH! 6TH ANNUAL GALPIN CAR SHOW GOES OFF!! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 686

6TH ANNUAL GALPIN CAR SHOW GOES OFF!! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 686 – Fireball and Ken grab the WIKD 356 and head to a VIP Experience at the 6th Annual Galpin Car Show in Chatsworth. Crazy-Ass cars, cool peeps and some tasty morsels. Then, back to the pad for some Inspiration!

GALPIN AUTO SPORTS (or GAS) is an American automobile dealership and automobile repair shop located in Van Nuys which specializes in customizing and remodeling vehicles specifically for their drivers. They also provide spare parts.

The shop was founded in 1946 by Frank Galpin and later purchased by Bert Boeckmann.

Galpin Auto Sports is the car garage featured on MTV’s #PimpMyRide hosted by Xzibit.

The show was moved from West Coast Customs to GAS in the 5th and 6th season.

They also own a second-hand car shop.

On site at the main garage is an extensive array of customized cars which can be bought direct from the garage.

GAS’s work can also be seen on the new television show Knight Rider.

They were asked to create the star of the show, a new version of the 2008 Ford Mustang called the GT500KR. “GAS had one week to create the new KITT, and they pulled out all the stops.

Six people worked full time to create the Mustang that would be sent over to Picture Car Warehouse as the father of all the KITT derivatives and stunt cars.”

“Galpinized” custom-designed vehicles have won national attention and awards.

Galpin Motors is the number one volume Ford dealership in the world, and “the top California car dealer(s) with more than $700 million in annual sales,” including well-known auto brands such as Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Jaguar, Volvo, Aston Martin, Lotus, Honda, Subaru, Kia and Volkswagen.
