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
