Owned and operated by Jeff Gangwish, Shinbone Alley began in Fresno, California, in 1987. Jeff has been customizing cars since the early 70's, starting as a hobby with his own 1953 Ford pickup.  His project caught the eye of Blackie Gageian, organizer of the Fresno Autorama, and he was invited to enter it in their upcoming show.  It wasn't long before Jeff was building cars for local clients and entering his cars in competitions across the country.

In 1987 Jeff started Paintin' Place, a fully equipped paint and body shop.  In 2000 it became Shinbone Alley, named after a street in Soho in New York City.

Jeff has been involved in over 400 projects to date. His cars have appeared in magazines including Street Rodder, Truckin', and Hot VWs, and have won numerous awards in the biggest car shows in the country.
