Back in November we mentioned Race Safro of RT Rods, the 16 year old who was headed to SEMA to unveil a custom-built Factory Five ’33 Hot Rod. After many hours of dedicated work and enthusiasm for the job, he successfully completed the build in time and showed how great his talent truly is. When it came time to hand the keys off to the proud new owner, SEMA attendees and the media definitely took notice. From a write-up in the New York Times to numerous mentions throughout SEMA-related press, Race is getting some pretty good exposure in the early phases of his career.
Race is high school student with amazing ability and is the primary force responsible for the impressive end results. As the owner of his own business, RT Rods, he was recently given full permission from the owner of a ’66 Pontiac Lemans to incorporate his talent into the restoration of this classic car. His father Jeff runs a custom upholstery business and occasionally assists Race in his builds, but it is Race himself who creates the vision and takes it from start to finish.
AMSOIL looks forward to supporting him in future endeavors and watching his ascent to the top in the world of custom car building.
