Teaching Students at Kustom Built Cars [RR 509]

Jack Weaver is a custom car builder of 25+ years and the owner of Acme Chop Shop. He started teaching the art of custom auto restoration at Kustom Built Cars (KBC).

Kustom Built Cars was started out of Jack’s love and enjoyment of custom cars and hot rods. He wanted to be able to continue a legacy for our generations to come. So he and his friends got together and came up with this awesome workshop so that future car builders of the world could come and learn the fundamentals of restoring a custom car from the ground up. The leader of our program wanted to share his story with you all so you can see how this idea became a reality and how it can for you too!
