Keith Christensen of Norwalk, California is known as the inventor of "Bellflower Chrome Tips." After purchasing Gene's Mufflers on the border of Paramount and Bellflower, Keith started building driveshaft tips and bed rail pipes. In 2016 he told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that he developed a manufacturing division, and after seeing how lifted cars were dragging up driveways, he got the idea to put a 90-degree elbow pipe on the front of his driveshaft tips; "I chromed the whole thing, that let us put them on the outside of the fenders, just behind the tires. Since I was next to the town of Bellflower, where I lived, I called them Bellflower Chrome Tips! The name stuck with them to this day."[1]
