The K&S Team
Bob's love of cars dates back forty years when he helped his dad work on cars as a kid. He built his first go cart when he was 12 years old, using his dad's lawnmower engine, and has had a love for cars ever since.
His first car was a 1956 VW, within a short period the VW was transformed into a slick speedster. His car collection over the years has included:
- 1961 VW Custom
- 1964 Ford XL Big Block
- 1963 Pontiac Le Mans
- 1966 Porsche 912
- 1971 240Z
- 1969 Cougar Convertible
- 1969 Dodge Dart GT 440
Bob's knowledge of cars is not restricted to building and owning classics. For the last 30 years he has been in the radio broadcast business, where he worked with new and used car dealers, assisting in the marketing of cars as well as working with factory representatives on national programs.
With his knowledge and passion for cars, opening K & S Cars with his son Chris and long time friend Bill was a natural fit. His current collection includes his 1966 custom Black Cherry El Camino and 2008 Performance White Shelby Mustang GT 500.
Ever since Chris was a kid he was always doing something with wheels, whether it was skateboards, bicycles, rollerblades… you name it! But once he built his first box car, it was all downhill from there. Chris spent his childhood building and racing box cars and eventually attended drag racing school in Nevada, where he knew he found his passion.
Throughout school, working on cars was a skill he acquired through auto shop, modifying his own cars with custom body work and paint. After high school, Chris was off to Chapman University where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing.
His lifelong passion for cars and education has equipped him with the skills to partner with his Dad to start K&S. On Chris' free time, he enjoys customizing body work on vehicles as well as continued mod work on his 2004 GT Silver Mazda 3 HTBK 5-Door.
Bill has long been a car enthusiast. As a car model builder and slot car racer in his early years to auto shop in high school, he modified and customized cars and van's for friends and himself. After the kids were gone and he retired after 33 years with the LA County Fire Department, Bill went to work in the automotive aftermarket.
He spent two years as a manufacturer's representative with "3dCarbon" working with Ford Motor Company's dealers and accessories distributors in the western United States.
Bill spends his spare time working on and showing his 1967 Candy Apple Red Ford Fairlane GT convertible and 2007 Torch Red Shelby Mustang GT 500 Convertible.
