Kenny Hauk serves as the lead designer of Hauk Designs, a Pennsylvania-based company that melds characteristics of luxury cars with off-road vehicles. This series profiles Hauk and his crew of mechanics and fabricators as they work to build one-of-a-kind vehicles that satisfy people's thirst for both form and function, creating machines that look good and can go anywhere. Hauk's inspiration comes from iconic designs throughout American history to help integrate the nation's rich past into modern, powerful creations.
Kenny and the team at Hauk Designs set out to build a WW2-themed rock crawler from the ashes of a wrecked Jeep Wrangler. Incorporating iconic designs and vintage parts from the actual planes that flew missions over Europe and the Pacific, Kenny pushes his guys to create a one of a kind off-road beast that looks like it was born in an airplane factory. Meanwhile, Justin leads his team of oddball mechanics as they put together a safari-inspired Jeep for a walk-in customer.
Kenny's latest mad creation aims to combine the Old West Colt .45 with a vintage 1947 Willy's Pickup, and raises the stakes even higher by telling his guys it needs to be ready for a big car-show event, the SEMA convention in Las Vegas. Also, Justin hopes to offset Kenny's spending on the SEMA build by flipping a junkyard truck for a quick profit..
