Meet the Author

Don Taylor grew up in the auto trimming business: his father was a trimmer, Don is a trimmer, and his two sons were trained as trimmers as they grew up. As an expert author, Don created the Automotive Upholstery Handbook for California Bill’s and six automotive books on engine rebuilding, restoration and paint and body work for HPBooks. Don’s work on the interior of a 1932 Auburn Coupe won Best of Class, People’s Choice, and Best of Show awards at the International Auburn/Cord/Duesenberg Show.

Ron Mangus started his stitching career in 1969 with his brother, Ernie Yanez, who provided special effort in getting Ron started right. He started Custom Auto Interiors in Bloomington, California in 1989. Ron’s name has become famous as the stitcher who creates fabulous interiors. His work has received numerous Best Interior Awards at a variety of car shows. He has created interiors for: Boyd’s Hot Rods, Tim Allen, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Pete Chapouris of SoCal Speed Shop, Linda Vaughan (Miss Hurst), Thom Taylor, Bruce Meyers, Kenny Bernstein, Robby Gordon, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Cory McClenathan and James Brubaker of Universal Studios. During the latter part of the 1990s and the 2000s the street rod and hot rod magazines have been filled with featured cars showing off his interiors. How-to articles showing Mangus’ techniques and expertise have appeared in Hot Rod, Rod & Custom, Street Rodder, Truckin’ and American Rodder. His interiors continuously appear in cars featured in these and other street rodding and hot rod magazines. He also developed a line of auto trim essentials and sells these through his “Stitcher Stuff” catalog. A roadster with his interior won America’s Most Beautiful Roadster at the 2010 Grand National Roadster Show.
