Detroit has given us many well known Hot Rod and Kustom car builders during the years. Mike Alexander and Larry Alexander, better known as the Alexander Brothers are two of the best known Kustom car builders from Detroit.
Another legendary Kustom car builder from Detroit is Bill Hines the Leadslinger. Hines moved to Detroit at the age of ten. In 1941 at the age of 19, he quit school, so he could begin building kustom cars. In 1958 Bill left Detroit, and headed down to California, where he began working for legendary George Barris and Barris Kustoms. One year later, he moved back to Detroit, and continued building kustom cars in Detroit. In 1960 Bill Hines left Detroit for good, and opened up Bill Hines Kustom Auto in Lynwood, California.
