#2 Kenny Keith’s Twin Turbo ’64 Ford Ranchero

Kenny takes us back to the beginning. “In 2007, I got a call from Jeff Mullins, a fabricator based in Maryland, and he asked me if I was interested in adopting a stalled ’64 Ford Ranchero project,” Kenny says. “I declined at first, because I had been through previous builds and was a tad burned out. Nonetheless, I saw the car and although it was rough, I liked it and before you know it, the Ranchero was mine. I hired Mullins Fabrication to build the chassis, roll cage and install the drivetrain in the car. From there the project slowed.”

For the next nine years, the Ranchero resided at body and machine shops in various states of assembly. “Around 2016,” Kenny continues, “I took a different direction and began searching for a builder to take the car to the next level. I was watching Bitchin’ Rides and said to myself, ‘That’s the guy I want to finish my car.’ I tracked down Dave Kindig, we struck a deal, and the Ranchero ended up immortalized on two episodes of Bitchin’ Rides in 2018.”

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
