DAVE KINDIG, BITCHIN’ RIDES, KINDIG IT DESIGNS“I am a Hot Rodder married to my beautiful wife Charity for 23 years. We have two amazing children, Baylee and Drew. I love what I do everyday!”
Dave Kindig – Owner/Designer
Dave started as a young child, drawing cars and playing with hot wheels and turned that passion for cars into the self-taught entrepreneur that he is today. Dave’s imagination and keen sense of style continually produce some of North America’s most beautiful hot rods and customs. Dave continues to push the envelope on what is possible with car design and year after year his shop churns the best Bitchin’ Rides on the planet.
(They) say, car design is an art form with few true masters. From concept & design, to build and then the finished product. It takes a person with special skills and vision to craft manufactured automotive vehicles into customs. It takes an entirely separate set of skills to turn these vehicles into masterfully designed One Off Custom Car Design fabrication business.

Tim Stevens and Warren Petryk first met as six-year olds on the bleachers of the Boyceville, Wisconsin, High School Gym in 1961 while watching their older brothers play basketball. They began performing music together during their grade school years with both playing trombone in the Junior High Band. Starting their freshmen year in the fall of 1969, Tim & Warren had every class together, for all four years of their high school career. Studying together, playing sports together, and spending extended hours in the band & choir room with music instructor Ken Kline, nurtured a friendship and bond that remains strong today.
