SHOP AND STAFF
California Rod and Custom first opened in 1993 as California Tire, a small tire and wheel shop in downtown Langley. Owner, Harold Hopink started the company with two business partners, eventually becoming the sole owner. Within 6 months of running the shop on his own, he hired Manny Colorado, an experienced mechanic. He expanded the business from custom tires and wheels to 4x4 parts.
Soon thereafter we out grew our building and moved shop to a brand new 10,000sqft building. This past December, Derek Paton joined our team, specializing in welding and fabrication.
View photos of the shop below. All work is done in house from body and paint to custom interiors.
