7: Ryan Friedlinghaus – Connected With The Community
After the success of the Pimp My Ride franchise just about everyone knew who Ryan Friedlinghaus was. Instead of letting the fame get to his head, he decided to build a new shop right in the heart of Burbank. This is where he grew up and he felt it would give fans a close look at what goes on behind the scenes at the shop. Friedlinghaus also wanted a shop where he can accept just about any job, no matter how big or small.
The interesting thing about his rise and success is the fact that he started from almost nothing. West Coast Customs is a true success story in every sense of the word, and it started from nothing which is even more impressive.
