"Inspired by American Graffiti, I Larry “VooDoo Larry” Grobe began building cars off of my driveway at the age of 17. My vision is to build unique cars like early customizer did.

Garnering heavy interest in Mid-Kustoms, Radical Kustoms and Hot Rods. My  creations have grown to be crowd favorites over the years. Whether the car is sleek and mean or loud and proud or low and slow, my taste for design is far from normal and that's why I build the way I do, I love to see the WOW factor from my fans faces.
With 70 Chops under my belt. I run my own shop and have been going strong for 10 years but have been customizing for 37 all together. VooDoo Larry Kustoms in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. My shop is 5000 square feet of customs and Hot Rod heaven that I get to enjoy each day, At any point in time. there are complete builds from the ground up alongside some daily drivers aspiring for mild modifications that I can't wait to get my hands on. My shop may not be all fancy or filled with the latest and greatest technology, but it doesn’t stop me from staying committed to what I do. I put my heart and soul into every build and modification I am tasked with. Daily goals are to bring cars back from the dead, rusted or rotting, I sets out not for the quantity of my work but the quality. truth be told it's not always about the cars, it’s also about the culture I live. from the pinstriping and playing the standup bass in a rockabilly band, told you I live the lifestyle to the fullest

You can see all my work in many publication such as
