Jeff and Ken met in 1992 while working in the Civil Engineering field as Land Surveyor’s. They soon found that they share a passion for classic cars, muscle cars, and hot rods. Over the years in their travels, they have come across many classic cars rotting away in fields, garages, and barns. They have always dreamed of opening their own shop, and that dream became a reality in 2016 when they founded Zenith Kustoms. The name Zenith is a land surveying term meaning “the pinnacle, top, or highest”. While brainstorming names for the shop, the two decided on Zenith Kustoms, paying homage to their careers as land surveyors. To honor our veterans, Zenith Kustoms helps veteran groups raise money and awareness by hosting car shows and other car events.
