After returning from WWII, Ted Willians moved to the Modesto, California. Shortly thereafter he joined the Modesto Century Toppers car club. The love of cars, especially hot rods, was a family affair. Ted and his son Skip owned, fixed up and modified many cars. Skip went on to have many hot rods on his own as well. Ted's wife, Helen, used to say "We never traded in a car. they always got wrecked."[1]

While living in Modesto, famous customizer and dry lakes racer Gene Winfield moved in across the street. After that, many days were spent working on cars and attending races in the weekends.[1]
