Meet the Author

Dain Gingerelli is a long-time automotive and motorcycle writer and photographer. Since the early 1970s Dain’s byline has graced numerous magazine mastheads including Street Rodder, American Rodder, Hot Bike, and IronWorks. His writing and photography have been featured in hundreds of magazine articles as well as books for MBI including Hot Rod Milestones and Ford Hot Rods. Dain resides in Mission Viejo, California.

Foose was born and raised in Santa Barbara, and automobiles were definitely in the blood — his first job was working for his father's company, Project Design. By age 12, he already had five years of experience under his belt, and had painted his first car — a Porsche 356.

Early on, a chance meeting and advice from Alex Tremulus, the designer of the Tucker, was actually Foose's stimulus to attend Art Center, where he majored in automotive product design and graduated in 1990 with honors.

Foose's career profile is staggering and award-winning. He has worked at the Asha Corporation and Stehrenberger Design, Baker Sportronics, and with his father at Project Design, designing and building street rods, customs, studio vehicles and show cars for films such as Blade Runner, Robocop and Gone in 60 Seconds.

Foose joined Boyd Coddington and Hot Rods by Boyd, eventually becoming the president. He was responsible for many internationally known vehicles, such as the Roadster, Sportstar, Boydster I and II, and Boyd Air.

Currently Foose is operating Foose Design, an automotive and product design company specializing in illustration, graphics, surfacing, and complete construction of automobiles and automotive-related products. These products are available to private individuals, the television and film industry and automobile manufacturers. In November 1997, Foose was inducted into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame, and in 2002, was inducted into the Darryl Starbird Rod & Custom Car Museum Hall of Fame.

Nice in depth stories about the overhauled cars and their families, and how Chip Foose and his awesome A-team created some very nice "pieces of art in motown"!
