The Kennedy Boyz Bomb Factory is where hot rod history survives and thrives. Joe and Jay (Jason), had no choice, they were born into a hot rod family. Sure, they do other things; go surfing, ride bikes, collect stuff but mostly they build traditional hot rods for a very small but discerning clientele that knows the gate code.
The Boyz got going around 1994 and have been building pretty much the same Ford-based traditional hot rods for almost 30 years. Sure, they’ll throw a SO-CAL chassis under a car if it warrants it or if the customer requests it but just as likely you’ll find them hammering original rails back into shape, weldin’ up holes and using original, un-split wishbones front and rear. And, even if they do use something as hi-tech as a Step-Boxed chassis or a tubular K-member they have a knack of making it their own and making it look like the factory built it.
