About Brad Bez
Brad Bez, Principal & Owner
Brad started working on Studebakers with his father at age eleven. After passing his first drivers license exam, he’s had some type of Studebaker parked in the driveway or in the garage, almost continuously. Brad says, “Life just wouldn’t be right without an old Stude to turn a wrench on, to fix-up and for driving fun”.
When time allows, he judges Studebaker Drivers Club Car Shows and contributes repair and restoration articles to Avanti Owners Magazine.
Brad’s 30+ year career is in automotive repair, everything from detail focused, factory correct classic car work to later model frame pull, heavy hit insurance work.
Brad specializes in Studebaker and Avanti, but also has the resources and knowledge to produce other make/model custom and resto-mod rides with increased horsepower and internally strengthened engines and transmissions.
