At age 16 Kurt began his love of cars. Since then he has not looked back. Working at dealerships such as Jaguar, Volkswagon, and Chevrolet, Kurt crafted his skill. In his years of working for dealers in the Farmington Valley he saw how the customers were being treated and the high prices they were being charged. In 1986 Kurt felt it was time to open his own shop and treat customers the way he would want to be treated. With this Kurt's Auto was created.
Along with general repair work Kurt started building his first hotrod. A custom 1967 Chevy C 10 Pickup. Kurt's work was his best advertising. Being seen driving around the Farmington Valley, and at local car shows, people could see the skill and precision Kurt put into his work. With this Kurt's Customs became the premier hot rod destination.
In his spare time Kurt would race SCCA time trials and WKA go-cart races. Taking his knowledge of how he wanted his cars to be set up Kurt understands the needs of every driver, on the road or on the track.
