Larry is a Michigan native with an extensive background in custom car fabrication and design. Larry began his journey as an auto body paint and repair technician servicing the types of vehicles you and I drive each day.
But there was something more that Larry felt he wanted to do than auto body and paint. He had become bored with the everyday repetition of his chosen profession and wanted to do more.
He began doing restoration services on vintage automobiles and the rest is history. Larry craved more knowledge of the automotive design aspect of the business and began to intensely study such custom car builders as Craig Naft, Dick Dean, Bill Hines, Boyd Coddington and many others.
His love of the lines and intricacies of fine European vehicles led him to work under the apprentice of many of the designers and builders he so admired including Dick Dean a fellow Michigan native.
Larry has also studied the works of famous designer Battista “Pinin” Farina who designed cars for companies including Ferrari, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Cadillac, Jaguar, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, and Lancia.
Larry has extensive training in steel and aluminum body panels which he has designed and built, shaping them by English wheel, hammer and dolly as the master craftsman of the past have. Ask Larry about the lines, shapes and contours of a Bentley, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Bugatti, Maserati or any number of other fine European automobiles and you are in for a real treat in his response.
He has created such pieces of craftsmanship as a 1948 Bentley One Off Wide Body, a 246 Dino Ferrari backend and much more.
Today Larry embarks on a new adventure with his move into hand crafted “wearable art” and sculpture with the same spirit, excitement and enthusiasm he has for fine automobiles.
