All in the Family
We’re all family in the hot rod industry
Many of us starting wrenching at a young age thanks to our fathers having grease under their nails; hot rods are often hereditary. But what do you do if you’re the only one in the family with 110 octane in your veins? Breaking into the scene can be tough without a mentor.
Enter Kevin Keep and his genius program called, most appropriately, Rebuilding Generations. The idea is to bring young guys (and gals!) together with seasoned car guys to help foster their interest in cars. The benefits are three-fold; the green horns get priceless experience building a complete car, the grey beards are able to share their knowledge, and both generations come away with a new appreciation for the other.
The inaugural year of the Rebuilding Generations program was a rousing success, which is a big relief to sponsors like Optima Batteries and Magnaflow exhaust, because high quality manufacturers in the hot rodding industry know that reaching out to young people is the future of our hobby
