“It’s always nice to be recognized at SEMA,” said Dore. “When I go there I want people to go there and really like my stuff. I’m known for the new cars but I really love working on the radical custom older cars.”
Dore started his career in the automotive industry more than a decade ago. His resume contains a full list of awards. He has been named Builder of the Year on many occasions by hot rod magazines and custom car organizations. He also won the Heritage Award from Ford two years ago. Dore’s list includes the Harley Bradley Design Achievement and World’s Most Beautiful Custom awards.
“I have three cars on covers of magazines in Germany and Holland,” said Dore. “I also designed a 1953 Skylark for Metallica’s James Hetfield. This year, James and I will do a 1937 Ford. The Skylark is equipped with K&N Filters and the 1937 Ford also will have K&N.”
Dore said he likes to be unconventional with his designs. “One thing I don’t change is K&N,” he said. “A lot of other companies claim they give you more horsepower, but K&N really does. I notice a radical difference in performance when I add K&N. The other good thing about the product is I can easily make K&N fit on the older cars.”
Some of the add-ons to the 2008 HHR from SEMA are:
