Is Bodie Stroud a designer, mechanic, builder, inventor or TV star. Well actually all of the above.
Bodie’s a small town boy whose first vehicle at age 16 was a beater 1961 VW bus that needed a lot of work. Since Dad wouldn’t pop for any of the repairs, Bodie had no choice - he had to figure it out himself. and that “figure it out/do it yourself” determination has been a hallmark of how he’s lived and worked ever since.
A refugee of automotive corporate America who got fed up with the rat race, Bodie decided to go it alone & opened up his own hot rod shop - Bodie Stroud Industries - in 2007. His building prowess showed from the get-go when he won 2007 Truck of the Year at Truck Jamboree and he’s had plenty of awards since, including 2009 Ford Design Award, and 2 SEMA “Best of Show” victories.
His jaw dropping builds have been featured in numerous magazines and TV shows; in fact he was one of the stars of “Monster Garage” with Jesse James and “Rock My RV” with Brett Michales. He’s even got quite a celebrity following, having built cars for Tim Allen, Johnny Dep & “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville.
