Over the last seven years, Kyle has built a reputation for showstopper builds made up of incredible details tucked behind every corner. Even the parts you can’t see are cool. Take, for instance, the water pump he made for his upcoming LT4 Corvette project. It’s a D-cast water pump converted to clamshell hydro flow, beautiful in its own right. Kyle has carved out his name building cars where every component, down to each fastener, is cool to look at. His cars are the cars other builders enjoy, even if they don’t particularly enjoy the car itself.

In fact, we saw his Datsun 240Z at the 2018 SEMA show. We were surprised to be so captured by a Datsun build, considering we’re usually obsessed with stuff many decades older. The folks at SEMA were also enamored, and that build won Kyle a top 4 spot at the 2018 Battle of the Builders.

In this episode, we talk with Kyle about getting his start sneaking away with his dad’s MIG welder, learning the trade, and pulling off the last-minute theatrics that comes with the car-building territory. Kyle talks about building his 1978 Datsun 240Z, the "Ballistic Beige", and some upcoming projects he has in store, including a wild Triple 20 Dodge Dart he has on the back burner.
