The "Mature Dudes" have been involved with the HOT ROD car culture since their teenage years back in the flatlands:
- Bob Bohlinger - Retired. Originally from Indiana, has had a mechanical background with both cars and farm equipment to enhance his "rod building" experience.
- Ron Moore - Waiting to retire. Originally from Nebraska, has had a strong background in DRAG RACING and the mechanical requirements the sport requires.
- John Shade - Retired. Originally from Kansas, has had a long experience in the aviation industry and has also been envolved in DRAG RACING since 1953.
Restoring and customizing cars over the years has been his passion.
