Chip Foose's Story
In a relatively short career, Chip Foose has created a legacy of designs and accomplishments that are well beyond his years. Chip was born and raised in Santa Barbara California and automobiles were definitely in his blood. Chip's first job was working for his father's company where Chip specialized in project design. By age twelve, Chip already had five years experience under his belt, and had also painted his first car; a Porsche 356.

Early on, a chance meeting from Alex Tremulus, the designer of the "Tucker", was actually Chip's motivation to attend Art Center, where he majored in automotive product design and graduated in 1990 with honors.

Chip's career profile is staggering. In 1986 he was Staff Designer/ Fabricator for the Asha Corporation, eventually becoming director of design in 1989. Chip was responsible for conceptualizing new proprietary ideas and fabrication of prototypes for the O.E.M. Since that time Chip has distinguished himself with his "cutting-edge" combo designs of retro and techno plus his unique style of wheels, paint and design have led him to host his own makeover show "Overhaulin"
