After working several years as a mechanical engineer, Al decided to take his hobby to the next level to not only build some amazing 4x4 vehicles but make a business out of it and work for himself. In 1978 he started with small builds like working on his friend's Early Bronco's just in his garage but that all changed when he moved the business to a full retail shop in 1980 and then Al moved the shop to its current location here in Englewood in 1985. He has been the sole owner of HCP4x4 since the beginning and he prides on having a clean shop and a teamwork environment!
