It all started with a cardboard box and a little lad called Walter…
Walt’s Speedshop was an idea born from a cardboard box garage I put together for my son while we were playing with his toy cars one day, and it’s evolved ever since.
I’ve been into Hot Rods and Kustom cars for as long as I can remember, and for me the graphics and logos associated with parts companies and ‘speedshops’ that service this scene are as much a part of the aesthetic as the bold shapes and colours of the cars themselves.
One T‑shirt design led to another and I soon decided I needed a place to sell them. So after sourcing a suitable drop-shipper, I put together a WordPress site with Woocommerce and have begun marketing my wares on social media.
