"VooDoo" Larry Grobe started building cars in his driveway when he was 18 years old.

He was a staple at local cruise nights and car shows. Everyone always looked forward to spring to see what he had done to his cars after the long winter. Fast forward 25 years and VooDoo Larry can be found at his shop, VooDoo Larry Kustoms , located in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.

The shop is 4,500 square feet of kustom and hot rod heaven. At any given time, there are complete frame up builds along side the daily drivers waiting for a mild kustom treatment. The shop is not state of the art, but VooDoo Larry puts his heart and soul into every build and modification.

Voodoo Larry Open House was a smashing success. It is one of the great Chicago area art events, about the car culture.
