Jay’s automotive career spans the course of his life.At an early age he began “…tinkering with cars, trying to find out what made ‘em tick.”Like his classmates, Jay enjoyed the hobby of Hot-Rodding throughout his high school days, but he wasn’t content with simply owning and driving a “rod”; instead, he had to build his own car to be satisfied with the structural integrity, overall appearance and performance.
Jay’s greatest love has always been experimentation. As he says it, “From the time a vehicle first appears on the drawing board, up through building it and adding the finishing touches, I can apply am endless variety of features which make the unit unique and outstanding, usually a pacesetter.”This creative impulse has expressed itself in the design and building of a line of customized cars that are visually and structurally innovative.Jay believes, “What better way to test innovative engineering features than through the design, development and construction of custom-built cars.”Jay’s imagination applies to the science as well as the art of car building, “My cars are functional; they are more than design exercises, for the cars and features on them are always operational.”
Jay’s interest in cars has never waned, and through the years, Jay has extended his skills to apply to a variety of endeavors, including custom cars and his own company which manufactured automotive specialty components and accessories. Today, Jay is looking to the near future, when he plans to open a permanent museum that will showcase his creations and acquisitions, many of which are currently on display on the “Hollywood Cars” world tour.
