Kustom Designs…from Mild to Crazy WIKD!™
When it comes to old school fabrication and design, Wikd Kustoms is your preferred choice…founder Ken Vela a self-taught designer, engineer and fabricator, draws inspiration from art, architecture as well as the greats Darrin of France, Gene Winfield, George Barris and Dean Jeffries.
I started customizing in 1979 building cars like the 1974 baby Z-28 “Golden Rod” Vega V8 swap, 1963 Pro Street Impala and a chopped top 1973 Vega Fiat X19 conversion. In 1984 I was commissioned to paint Kustom stripes on brand new van conversions for all local dealerships straight from the manufacturer in Elkhart, IN. I also, specialized in hand painted pin stripes, fabrication in fiberglass and metal…hand making scoops, flares and spoilers as well as headlight covers and taillights. What-ever my customer wanted I could design it and build it!
After a successful career in the Medical field it was time to get back to business and build my most WIKD creation “WIKD 356” a 625hp nitrous snorting Porsche powerhouse.
