Profile

Jonathan Goolsby started his motorhead journey at an early age working out of his home garage customizing anything he could get his hands on. He learned his way around a paint booth when the local Chevrolet dealer saw some of his spectacular work and recruited him to head up their in-house paint operation.

Though the Chevy dealership was his day job, for the next 12 years, Jonathan all the while kept building a string of increasingly unexpected hot rods on the side. That led to a collaboration with Josh Henning in building a series of high profile rides that generated numerous magazine features and garnered an untold number of awards.

Riding on this success and after much soul searching, Jonathan and his wife Vonda decided to jump off into the deep end and in early 2005 opened up their own shop - Goolsby Customs - and they’ve never looked back. Goolsby Customs is today regarded as one of the premier builders in the U.S., capable of meeting any gear head’s need. From something as simple as updating an existing ride all the way to a turn-key build that starts as nothing more than a glimmer in an enthusiast’s eye.

If you give me that junky big block I’ll get it out of your way. No disposal fee necessary 😉

New school in an old car....nothing is more custom than that.

Either one for me
