In 2014 we recieved a call from B.R. Howard & Associates, a company specializing in the preservation of historical items. They were interested in having all four fenders recreated for Charles Edison’s 1936 Brewster, an extremely rare car made even more important by it’s owner who was Thomas Edison’s son.

The car was undergoing it’s preservation at the Howards’ shop in Pennsylvania and was not able to be transported to our shop in Suffolk Va, so we were supplied with the four rusted, damaged original fenders and tasked with creating new exact replicas, without damaging the originals in any way. When the fenders were complete we drove them up to Pennsylvania so we could make sure they fit. And they did!

This finished car is currently at the Edison Estate in New Jersey.

Yocum’s Signature Hot Rods, in an effort to protect our family, our team, and our clients as well as do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we will be closing our doors to the public until further notice. During this time we will continue to work on those projects currently in the shop and communicate via phone and email and we ask that everyone refrains from stopping by the shop.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. God bless.
