About Steering Wheel Bob
With over 50 years as a builder, carpenter, and passionate car hobbyist, hand-craftsmanship is in my blood. I grew up around my father's car lot, and my first job as a teenager was in a body shop where I learned bodywork and painting from old-school artisans. I painted my first car at 17, and I've been hands-on in the hobby ever since.
I completed my first ground-up, frame-off restoration over 50 years ago--a 1930 Franklin that won a CCCA First on it's inaugural outing and continued to rack up a series of Firsts and 'Best in Shows' over the next decade.
I've always restored my show cars myself, and each earned multiple CCCA & AACA National First Prizes. These cars have included:
1930 Franklin 7 Passenger Sedan (1 of 7 produced)
1951 Imperial Convertible (1 of 650 produced)
1956 Crown Imperial Limousine (1 of 119 produced)
I've also owned a variety of other cars, including a 1925 Franklin Boattail Speedster, a 1950 Studebaker Pickup, and a very rare original 1951 Chysler Town & Country Wagon.
I've participated in numerous other restorations for friends and clients, and I've been exclusively performing steering wheel restorations (and dash parts) since the early 90's.
