Developed for the Driven: Jimmy Shine - Never Lift

Local hot rod building legend and longtime MagnaFlow friend, Jimmy Shine, recently gave us a look at his latest projects and took a few minutes to talk with us about his life growing up in Orange County, California and the role hot rodding has played in making him who he is today.

Jimmy's full throttle, "never lift" lifestyle has led him down quite the impressive path. From working alongside Pete Chapouris to collaborating with ZZ Top and working on TV shows, Jimmy has nearly done it all. While we were there, he also gave us a quick walk-through of some of the builds he’s currently working on, including a 1952 Buick with a truly unique MagnaFlow exhaust setup and a 1959 Pontiac Station Wagon built to match (and tow) the owner’s boat!

Thanks again to Jimmy and his team at Shine Speed Shop for inviting us into their awesome lair where they bring their creations to life.
