Salinas Boys Customs is a Custom Shop in Salinas, California run by Cole Foster. After building his 1954 Chevrolet, Cole's reputation as a custom car builder started to grow, and in 1990 Cole and his Salinas Boys moved into a standard industrial-grade steel building on the outskirts of town. The shop consisted of two-garages, and a second floor were Cole and his wife lived. The garage under the apartment was used for storing completed projects, up-and-comers, and The Blue Car. In 2006 Cole and his wife Susan bought a 1940s Spanish Revival home with complete shop facilities out back, and Cole moved his business into the new house.[1]

Due to cars being so labor-intensive and the bar being so high, Cole has gotten more and more into fabrication and restyling of motorcycles recent years.[1]
