Opened in the summer of 2003, Starlite Rod & Kustom is a full-service custom and restoration shop that caters to pre-1970's, American-made cars. Located between Los Angeles and Long Beach in Torrance, CA, the shop can be found at 1407 W. Carson Street.
Though the shop opened its doors in 2003, Starlite's owners Jack Fields and Edgar Hernandez have been building and driving hot rods and customs in the California South Bay for years.
