Meet the team at Honest Charley Garage
"To build a project so we can step back at the end of the month and say 'Wow, we did that' or 'This thing didn't exist; everything we did, we built from scratch' — a job well done is one of the greatest feelings." – Greg Cunningham, shop foreman
Honest Charley was founded in 1948 by Honest Charley Card in Chattanooga, Tenn., as the first mail-order speed shop in the country. Today, the premier shop and builder of hot rods is owned by Corky Coker of Coker Tire — he and the staff carry on a tradition of quality styling and superior customer service, restoring cars, building custom vehicles and renovating antique cars.
Now the Honest Charley team has the opportunity to take that heritage on the road as the builder of the 2013 Street Rodder Road Tour vehicle. The build is underway and Miller products are being used exclusively for the welding and cutting on the vehicle.
Products used include:
- Millermatic® 211 Auto-Set™ with MVP™ MIG welder
- Millermatic® 212 Auto-Set™ MIG welder
- Dynasty® 200 DX TIGRunner Pkg TIG welder
- Spectrum® 625 X-TREME™ plasma cutter
- Arc Armor® welding protection
