Profile

As a self proclaimed "broke-ass farm kid", Tim Strange had to learn how to work on everything himself and that "learning out of necessity" set the foundation for his successful future as a premier hot rod builder. A truly "self taught" wrencher, Tim's Dad gave him fertile ground to grow in. Dad was a custom Harley builder who eventually morphed into building rides with four wheels, with Tim helping Dad more and more with each project along the way.

At age 14 Tim purchased his first ride, a '55 Chevy 150 from his great-great grandpa using the $100 he earned from selling his 4-H pigs! By age 16 he'd worked his way up to a '64 Chevelle SS that was a little rough around the edges and also stared working at a local body shop to help fund the changes he wanted to make to his ride. Like most teenagers money was tight so it took him nearly 3 years to get the Chevelle to where he wanted to show it, but ultimately a 19 year old Tim Strange took it to the Street Machine Nationals and believe it or not got the Runner Up award! What does that tell you about his "self taught" capabilities!

Tim Strange and the gang at Strange Motion Rod & Custom are proud to be able to still be working out of the pole barn Tim and his Dad built. Tim Strange is no "Johnny come lately" to the hot rod world, that's for sure; that "broke-ass farm kid " sure has come a long way! Whether it's nostalgia, cutting edge custom, street rod, resto or corner carving g -machine .... Strange Motion can bring dreams to reality from the smallest to the "totally unimaginable."

SEMA 2 years ago, 2015, we were working around the clock to debut Terry and Sara Roses Domino C10 in the Flowmaster booth. It received the Sony Gran Turismo award for Best Truck of SEMA. It featured a ton of metal mods, stretched bed downward and forward and widened at rear, rear of cab reshaped, rear or roof reshaped , chopped above the shaved drop rails, hood extended towards windshield, recessed rockers, doors extended down, narrowed and tucked bumpers, and a rear wing. Lots of tube work in the chassis, big Wilwoods, Currie rear, Scotts Supsension, Nutek wheels, magnuson supercharged LS3, everything under the hood hand made, Ring Brothers hinges, custom dash, mild roll cage, huge Kicker stereo by Chris Robinson, and the list goes on and on. It was went on to get a Street Trucks cover and 7 page feature, Axalta calendar, Builders Choice at Columbus and Bowling Green Goodguys, LS Fest best classic truck, best engine, and sponsors pick. Was a pleasure to build it for the Roses. This was also Carries last interior job before retiring from interior work. @streettrucks @magnusonsuperchargers @ringbrothers @greeningautocompany @axaltarefinish @wilwooddiscbrakes @nutekforgedwheels @currieenterprises @scottshotrods @mrsrodbuilderbmx @kickeraudio #dansdriveline @dakota_digital @bandmracing_official @bowlertransmissions @bedwoodandparts @bedwood @ronfranciswiring @boom_mat @glass_guy_chicago @ididitsteering @bobgrantfab @rigidindustries @industrialdepot #durhammfg #paceperformance @brotherstrucks @flowmaster_official @ridetechsuspension @68c10_domino @saraerose  if your ready for your next project, hit up Strange Motion for a small job, paint, body, our a full build like Domino. #thestrangemotionway @rodbuilder  @mrsrodbuilderbmx

Shows that cars tastefully done are timeless.

The first episode of The Rodcast by the American Hot Rod Foundation is an hour long interview with Pete. Other interviews in this series were very interesting as well. feeds.soundcloud.com/stream/270699070-user-213833783-ahrf-podcast-pete-henderson.m4a

Wow...always loved that car.

Historic resto we did on the Pete Henderson roadster, Tons of cool history in it. Was chosen as one of the 75 most significant 32s of all time when they did the Deuce anniversary at the GNRS. It was built back in the early 40s in California by a 19 year old Pete Henderson. He traveled betting races on horses . Cool. It was in Rodders Journal and shown at Pebble Beach and had a transport accident. Mr Whitworth bought it and we did a full resto. By blowing up pics from Pete Henderson to get as many details correct even down to the way a 19 year old ran the wires. Mr. Whitworth has since passed away and I hear the car will be going through an RM auction soon. I painted and cut and rubbed every inch, frame, bottom of floor and even inside the floor and quarters as requested by client. Cool to be part of preserving history. Some mechanical and maintenance after we did it has been handled by @hotrods_and_customstuff in Southern California so it is a great addition to any historical collection or museum. #thestrangemotionway @strangemotionrodncustom #deuce #32ford #yupwedothattoo

The Hansen 32 we built, lots of cutting and moving and one off parts. 
We also have two other 32 fords going on, both are ready for new clients to pick colors and a few items, and the glass roadster can be ready for spring and the steel four door can be ready for Street Rod Nats.
