Friedlinghaus had this to say about the new endeavor, "I have been building custom cars from the ground up for the past 27 years. It is unfortunate that many high schools are unable to offer wood shop or automotive classes any longer and I feel that high-quality hand-craftsmanship work is a dying art form. I would like to help bridge that gap, give back to my community, bring in younger generations and build new talent at the all-new West Coast Customs Academy."
With West Coast Customs Academy classes commencing early 2017, plans for a two-hour WCCA special on FOX Sports have already been green lit. West Coast Customs, the television show, is produced on site at the West Coast Customs headquarters in Burbank, CA. The show is produced for FOX Sports 2 and airs Sunday evenings, 7 PM PST/10 PM EST weekly.
Founded in 1993 by Ryan Friedlinghaus, West Coast Customs is the premiere vehicle modification shop, internationally known for its original designs, beyond your imagination concepts, impeccable quality, cutting-edge technology and unparalleled craftsmanship.
