In our in-depth Interview,Posie and I covered many, many subjects.  His expertise & knowledge, along with that of the amazing team he has assembled at Posies Hot Rods & Custom Cars, is responsible for some of the most unique statements of Rod & Custom building in the Industry.

This time I wanted to know if  there were any problems that came up that couldn't be solved, as well as a question I always like to ask the HOF Legends: "Who were the early influences in your career ?  Who helped you get to where you are ? "

                           

                                          

Ken is a true Craftsman in every sense of the word,  and treated me to one of the most candid and refreshing Interviews in the HOF Legends Series !

If you ever get the chance to meet him in person, please do yourself a favor:  say "hello", introduce yourself, and, enjoy the company of one of the R & C Industries Ultimate Legends !   JK

     

                                   

(Above left: The late Joe Mayall from NSRA/StreetScene at his desk; Above right:  Jim "Jake" Jacobs doin' what he does best...drive 'em hard !  Both influenced Posies early career. )
