Shake my hand, you bitch.
00:04
(laughs)
00:10
I'm Matt D'Andria, and this is Car Collectors.
00:19
At Galpin Auto Sports we do all areas of customizing
00:22
for literally all makes and models.
00:24
Basically, if you can dream it, we can build it,
00:27
and we do anything custom.
00:29
Oh buddy, good seeing you again.
00:31
Good to see you too.
00:32
Thank you for inviting me over.
00:33
Any time.
00:34
Galpin Auto Sport Collection, this is one of the best
00:37
places in Southern California to check out muscle cars
00:40
and your whole line of Galpinized cars you guys
00:43
have been building over the years.
00:44
Let's go take a look at them.
00:45
Beau, you and I are huge Mustang fans, we know this,
00:48
and I know you love these Shelbys.
00:50
[Beau] Yes
00:51
Tell me about this Shelby Mustang.
00:52
This is a '65, GT-350 and it was literally put in a guy's
00:56
garage and stored for over forty years and untouched.
00:59
It's a true barn find, we left all the patina on it,
01:03
inside and out but we got it running like a clock.
01:05
So it drives beautifully.
01:07
This is one of the greatest cars,
01:08
I think, in your collection.
01:09
So these are some of our Galpinized vehicles,
01:11
this was in the movie Kickass, it's the Red Mist Mobile,
01:15
so kind of cool.
01:17
This is the car my kids love, our Focus RS,
01:19
and one of the fastest, best handling cars
01:21
you could ever drive.
01:23
This is our Focus ST, that we did for SEMA this year,
01:26
we actually did a whole custom wide body kit, really emulate
01:29
the rally cars of today, as a street car version of it.
01:33
And this is our '66 Bronco, one of my favorite projects.
01:37
This is truly a custom inside and out, it was all hand
01:41
built, everything from the suspension, all the interior
01:45
functions, and it's got an awesome 302 engine in it
01:49
that is just so powerful.
01:51
I love the Gulf colors, you'd never think it would work
01:53
on the Bronco but it does and it just came out great.
01:57
When I first saw it I knew we had a winner
01:59
and so far everyone that's seen it has absolutely loved it.
02:04
This has to be one of the craziest custom cars
02:07
you guys ever made, it keeps getting better and better
02:09
every year, tell me what is this?
02:12
This is Scythe, it's twin supercharged,
02:15
thousand horsepower, super crazy custom car,
02:18
that was actually based on a Mustang.
02:20
Our idea was let's come up with a modern, crazy show car
02:25
that not only showcased design but also technology.
02:29
How do you open it?
02:30
Can you open it up?
02:31
Everything is on voice command, so Scythe, doors open.
02:36
Voice activation, how do you drive this thing?
02:38
There's no steering wheel.
02:41
Well it depends if you want a left-hand drive
02:43
or a right-hand drive depending what country you're in.
02:45
So for you, we'll hit the button,
02:48
that activates the steering and now your pedals
02:50
are activated as well.
02:52
(loud engine noise)
02:57
Twin superchargers, a thousand horsepower,
02:59
this would scare the (bleep) out of you.
03:02
What I love about this place is that it's a big toy store
03:04
and everything in here is for sale.
03:06
Except for one car, and that's my baby, this is my very
03:09
first car, '65 Mercedes, 220SE
03:13
and the first car that I ever customized.
03:15
It used to be green on green and now it's black
03:18
with leopard skin interior.
03:19
[Matt] The leopard skin, that was your idea?
03:20
[Beau] That was my idea, yeah.
03:22
Now you've got to tell me,
03:23
what is this crazy thing right next to it?
03:26
Well that's just Liberace's Zimmer,
03:28
it's got to be one of the all-time tackiest cars,
03:32
and what's not to love about that?
03:34
Oh I love it.
03:35
Beau, thank you so much, it's been an absolute pleasure.
03:37
My pleasure Matt.
03:38
The Galpin collection is really amazing
03:40
and what you guys can do with these cars is incredible.
03:43
I'm blown away every time I come by here,
03:45
you guys are always pushing the limits on stuff,
03:47
so thank you once again.
03:48
My pleasure.
