Chip has international acclaim as an automotive designer, fabricator and innovator. He has worked with many of the great car builders in the industry. His father was the first who believe in his son – at an early age – letting him work in his shop. At the age of twelve Chip already had five years of automotive design experience.
He quickly moved up in the ranks of OEM developers and building cars for the movie scene.
Hot Rods by Boyd started a relationship with Chip where he started working on internationally vehicles like the Roadster, Sportstar, Boydster 1 and 2. Eventually, Chip assumed responsibilities of president of Boyd’s enterprise.
He was the youngest inductee into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame at Peterson Publishing. He has been inducted into the Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame. Two prestigious Ridler awards from the Detroit Autorama. Good Guys Street Rod of the Year award eight times.
An alliance with MHT Luxury Alloys meant Chip could start his own line of Foose Wheels.
And then in 2004 Chip was given the lead in a new TV show called “Overhaulin”. This is where many people outside the industry really got to see his great skills as a car designer and fabricator. But we got to what a great guy he was. After 11 years Chip has decided to start other adventures.

Cub Scout Pack 29’s Cruisin’ Car Show
We will have a couple of cool Cubs in the studio talking about their first car show. As part of earning a badge the pack decided to host a cruise night in their home town of Mukwonago, Wisconsin. The group has been working hard in learning how to promote and organize a car show. They are even designing their own trophies for their selected award winners.
To learn more about how identify the many different categories for cars and motorcycles they invited Captn Bob and Arlo to come to one of their meetings. They went through the Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio’s Car Spotting Guide. This guide was developed to help classify things like – what is the difference between a “stock” or “modified” vehicle. Then Captn Bob and Arlo brought in some of the cool and unusual trophies they have collected and built throughout the years.
