Beau Boeckmann 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe. Named "Iron Orchid," the coupe was built and designed by Dave Shuten at Galpin Auto Sports. Dave's vision for the coupe was to build the ultimate 1960s show car. “I wanted this to be the best you could build in 1965, with nothing on the coupe newer than 1965,” Shuten told Jorge Nunez of Hot Rod Magazine. The build was completed in 2013.

Ed Roth's 1956 Ford F-100 truck of Maywood, California. Ed, who was a member of the Maywood Drag Wagons, bought the truck in 1957. He wanted to use it as a promotion vehicle for his custom paint and pinstripe business, so he gave it a red flame paint job the same year. In 2016 Beau Boeckmann at Galpin Auto Sports bought the truck. Led by Dave, Galpin Motors' team of vehicle restoration experts refurbished the truck with NOS and other period-correct parts. The restoration was completed in January of 2017.
The Hard Hat Hauler was built by Barris Kustoms in 1971. Dave led the restoration of the old show rod for Jeff Dunham at Galpin Auto Sports. The restoration was completed in 2017.

Dave Shuten of Northridge, California.

Dave was born in 1972, in a small town outside of Detroit, Michigan. In 2018 Dave told Kustomrama that his father was a mechanic at a Standard Oil station on Woodward Avenue. "Dad always had cool cars when I was a kid. I started with Hot Wheels, then model cars, before I went on to the real thing. My first car was a 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS."[1]
