My name is Danny Luevano, and I am the owner of Danny’s Hot Rods (DHR) of El Paso, Texas, where I was born and raised. I have over 40 years in the automotive industry. DHR has built high-end custom cars for people throughout the United States.
I took vocational classes in high school, which made me a very successful painter, specializing in candy apples, pearls, etc. Throughout the years, I attended college and took courses in mechanical engineering and welding, to name a few, which I knew would help me achieve success as custom hot rod builder.
My professional experience includes building and fabricating custom cars, which goes back to when I was seventeen years old. I started working on cars when I was fourteen years old. I have always been an automotive enthusiast at a very young age, and I further became self-taught as a:
Custom car builder;
Custom motorcycle builder; and
Very well-known custom painter.
In 1983 to 1984, I toured the International Show Car Association (ISCA) and received top accomplishments in custom hot rod building.
In addition, DHR built custom motorcycles from 1979 to 2008.
In 2007, I developed, implemented, and fabricated blower/tunnel ram “big and ugly” (BAU) street scoops that fit 750-1050 CFM, 4150 Series Double Pumper carburetors. Thereafter, I managed to complete the product manufacturing process. These products took considerable development and are finally ready for the market effective 2016.
