Growing up in the Automotive Industry & working in Performance Automotive/Marine Parts from childhood has given Ash a great knowledge of cars & parts.

She spends her days working at Engine Master Australia selling top notch parts, which has progressed her love for cars into a mild obsession.

With a car obsessed family there was no choice but to be a part of the automotive industry.

With a vast and ever growing car collection, you will find Ash at most of the car shows Australia (or the USA) has to offer, occasionally even dressed up the part in full Rockabilly gear.

Ashleigh's love for creativity started at a young age and has developed into different avenues as time has gone on - as a teenager she self taught the adobe suite to create advertisements for Engine Master, got into photography for some Waterski/Wake magazines and now the latest craze of digital drawings has inspired "The Rod Squad".

An absolute creative genius - whether it be cars, bikes or anything metal....it can be fixed, enhanced or created.

Chris built his very first car as a young teenager and become hooked on the industry ever since - from your standard 'show quality' cars to the crazy cool rat rods, Chris can & will build anything!

This guy is the mastermind behind Old Cool Customs building your dream cars, currently he is working on his own XK Falcon with a Turbo Barra Engine and is currently helping Ashleigh with her GMC project.

With connections with FNA and the 405 team, Chris also works over in the USA on some of the Street Outlaw projects.

Recently Chris and Ash acquired some shed space and have taken OCC to the next level.

Old Cool Customs is now operating Full Time and open to take on your projects, just 'Contact Us' and we will get your dream project underway!

No project is too big or too small for OCC!

Ashleigh & Chris love to design together and bounce ideas off each other to design some of the unique merchandise you will find ROD SQUAD has to offer.
