From Hot Rod Royalty comes classic customizing. Cole Foster, owner of Salinas Boys Customs, has been constructing rolling works of metal art since 1989. Son of Hall of Fame driver Pat Foster, Cole creates cars that are so clean they don't have lines - they simply flow, as evident from the numerous magazine features written on these customs that roll from the bays of the Salinas Boys shop in the quiet California town. At the 2001 Grand National Roadster show Cole left with the Chip Foose Design of Excellence Sweepstakes award from his 1956 Ford F100 Truck.
After receiving a BFA from Oklahoma University, Susan took a job as an Associate Producer specializing in automotive programming at Bradley David Productions. There they supplied programming for Spike, Speed Channel, Discovery Channel and ESPN among others. Susan's extensive automotive background helped her segment and location produce, as well as write technical scripts for the shows. She traveled the country attending racing events and featuring some of the top builders in the country. Cole met Susan when she was doing a feature on one of his custom builds. She now joins him as his partner handling the business, merchandising and promotions. A beautiful chapter began April 2006 when they were married.
