In this episode, Vinny and Greg talk about all facets of car building with Detroit Speed’s President Kyle Tucker. Builder of the numerous-award-winning “Tux” 1969 Camaro, Tucker talks about how he came from fixing equipment on the farm to building some of the cleanest and most recognizable muscle cars on the planet.

  1. Kyle’s Early Influences: We talk about Kyle’s early days on the farm to spending time at his local racetrack and how he fell in love with all things automotive.
  2. Working As An Engineer For Chevrolet: We fast-forward to Kyle’s college years and beyond when he began working for Chevrolet as an engineer. From data acquisition and testing Corvettes to eventually getting bored behind a desk – we cover it all.
  3. Starting Detroit Speed Inc.: From humble beginnings in a two-car garage, Kyle started with one employee and a dream – to make quality parts and cars. Years later, with numerous awards under his belt, he’s done just that.
  4. The Detroit Speed Process: We cover just how Detroit Speed’s parts and cars are built. With an eye for true craftsmanship and unrivaled attention to detail, every car Kyle touches seems to be a show winner.
  5. How To Build A Show Winner (TUX): We expand on that idea and Kyle gives some tips to would-be builders out there on how to set themselves apart and develop a personal style.

We hope this episode offers some insight into the man behind Detroit Speed Inc., and gives our viewers a look at just how some of hot rodding’s most beloved cars are made.
