DAN COOK

Marketing/Promotion/Awards

Dan Cook has always had a love for old cars. You can often find him tinkering on his 1950 Dodge Coronet Club Coup or his 1965 Chevy C20. He enjoys meeting other car owners and hearing the history of their cars and how they came to be.


Dan's passion for classic cars and hot rods started with Hot Wheels as a child. He dreamt about owning a 50's or older coupe since he was 10 years old. The dream became reality after enlisting into the Army and buying his first Classic with his sign on bonus.
