This Rebel Gearhead Taught Himself to Build Hot Rods

Hot Rod

"You have to suck to get good."

Skoty Chops didn’t grow up with much money. He also loved cars, specifically hot rods, low riders and muscle cars. A purebred gearhead, Chops refused to let that lack of cash get in his way of doing what he loved most, fabricating cars. Instead of a "proper education," Chops taught himself his passion and profession through hard work, sweat and trial and error. Slowly but surely he learned and perfected his craft, and even found some customers along the way.

He never really intended to start his own shop; it just sort of worked out that way. Skoty Chops (a name he gave himself) is not just a gearhead, but also a free spirit who defies the mainstream. The world needs more people like him.
