    Hi, I’m Bobby Ledford. I’m from okc, Oklahoma home of the 405 . I’m a custom car builder , harley builder. Fabricator and long time welder for many business in okc. I have ran and worked for many horrid or auto shops here. I now live in phoenix,az. I was in a video on facebook, where I showed colin how to “Chop a model a in two minutes”. I’m wearing a black daddy dave Comstock t shirt. I help a lot of hotrodders in phoenix and most of okc knows me from working on their cars. I know a few of the gas monkey guys indirectly and would make a great working addition to any crew. I’m actually trying to get a crew together myself. I can build engines, gm transmissions and rear-ends. I do a lot of air conditioning too, haha. I grew up in a sprint car family. Street racers too. Crazy fun type of guy with awesome stories and can get some work done when it’s a tight schedule. No drama here just GITRDONE!

  4. Still looking for that one shop that’s different? I recently had a millionaire invest in me so I can show the world my talents. Providing me with a 3600ft shop at no charge as long as we build his toys. I have been in 10 magazine’s on building motorcycles now I can show that I can restore or modify truck and cars also. I do it all mechanic, fabrication to painting. I still consider myself a rookie. Rookie garage? Not afraid of showing my mistakes. That’s how I learn. I’m in the middle of restoring a1965 Chevy truck and will be lowering it 6″ Randy a friend that I’m teaching is a beginner
