Richard Torres' 1951 Chevrolet of Lawndale, California. Restyled around 1957 - 1958, Richard's Chevrolet featured a scallop paint job by Bill Hines of Long Beach, California. Eddie upholstered the trunk in Ricgard's Chevrolet when he was renting space from George Barris.
Eddie upholstered Dean Jeffries' 1956 Porsche 356 Carrera in the 1950s. The build was completed around 1958/1959.
Teddy Zgrzemski' 1957 Chevrolet Nomad of Rockwood, Michigan. Teddy bought the Nomad from his friend Gene Rosco back in 1964 or 1965. It came from California, and it featured a beautiful Eddie Martinez interior. Shortly after buying the Nomad, Teddy's uncle, Bill Hines, helped install hydraulic lifts on the car, turning it into what might be the first hydraulic lifted car in Michigan.
Eddie upholstered Ed Roth's Outlaw in 1959.
