We feel it is vital to give a massive thank you to a bunch of legends who have helped United Speed Shop (and continue to), so we'd like to give you guys a peek behind the scenes at some of these guys and publicly acknowledge their contribution to United. If they hadn't been there for us, we might not be here now!
The man responsible for the fine detail welding on United Speed Shop’s innovative new Independent Front Suspension (IFS) units, Brett Fogarty can TIG weld with the best of them. The Newcastle-based dad of two is a sheetmetal guru by trade, but these days divides his time between shuffling paperwork in an office job and the fine detail TIG work USS requires on the new IFS front-ends.
A prolific builder Brett’s carried the keys to a bunch of super-slammed rides, from his original black EH Holden, through a slew of manically lowered rides. That list included building a bagged Volvo wagon, then a body-dropped Datsun 720 ute, before moving on to a bodied and bagged, full size late model GMC Suburban.
His current ride is a seriously cool Triumph bobber. The stumpy Trumpy is a real piece of work, with the heavily chopped down beast able to scare pedestrians with its short pipes and aggro flat green paint.
