Mike Eden -
When Mike Eden was growing up, he couldn't escape his automotive surroundings. From his neighbor and his race car, to the fab shop across the alley, and to his dad and his cars, automobiles were an integral part of his childhood. During that time, he developed a taste for modifying things by cutting up bikes and having the guys across the alley weld them up into something unique for him to ride around in. When he reached adulthood, the bikes gave way to cars and he also entered the business world with his Eden Tool Company. Over the years, it has flourished to the point that it now engineers, builds, and services precision plastic injection molds, most of which are for the medical industry. Being a gearhead and having a business that has advanced design and fabrication capabilities has given him the perfect excuse to also design, develop, and fabricate parts for custom cars. This is an expanding part of his business, with builders coming to him to have one-off pieces made for their high-end projects. As a result of these capabilities, beyond his own rides, he also often has friends' cars in the shop that get updated and tweaked. His collection is decidedly Chevy flavored with a mix of old and new technology.
