While Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s musical career has been nothing short of phenomenal, his passion for cars easily matches his passion for guitars.
Kenny designs, restores and builds his own cars. His collection includes several expertly conceived projects, including a ’69 Charger, ’70 Plymouth Duster, ’72 Dodge Charger, '70 Cuda, and a ’50 Ford Business Coup.
His commitment to the automobile community is well known, and Shepherd and his work have been featured on TLC’s “Rides”, "Overhaulin", "Hot Rod TV", Maxim Magazine, Celebrity Rides Magazine, Mopar Collector’s Guide, Mopar Muscle, Muscle Car Power, and Popular Hot Rodding Magazine, just to name a few. He is also a fixture on the famed Hot Rod Power Tour, driving annually with YearOne.
On top of all this, Kenny has shown a new custom car at Las Vegas’ SEMA each year for the past 4 years, and will be unveiling his newest ride, a 1964 Dodge, at the Mopar Performance booth this November.Check out our exclusive video of Kenny in his garage talking about his love of cars – including an inside look under the hood of the tricked out 1970 Plymouth Duster that he built!
