All for the love of STREET RODS & CUSTOM CARS


Steve Kaiser didn’t play much football, basketball or baseball back in the 1940s and 50s when he was growing up. Didn’t play a musical instrument in the school band or take a class in auto shop, as Jefferson High School didn’t offer a car building program back then. He did excel in the creative arts. Thanks to his understanding of how shapes, colors and artistic form create a true work of art, and we at R&R publication are proud to bring you Mr. Steve Kaiser’s four works’ of artistic automotive wonder.

Steve was happily married for over forty years. The proud father of two fantastic kids and three grandchildren. He lost his wife Vicki to illness a few years back. He  was a dedicated employee at Boeing Air-Craft for over twenty two years and at age seventy two is enjoying his retirement. Steve has also been very active in the Toys-for-Tots program here in the Portland area. Just a few weeks ago he made a super delivery of a whole truck load of bikes  and safety helmets for kids of all ages.

Steve would like to recognize and thank the following individuals who over the past thirty plus years have played a role in the designing and building of  his four custom built creations: Russ Meeks, Richard Pruitt, Lonnie Gilbertson, Mitch Kim, Jim Sanders, The Crew at Paolo Engine Service, Lenny Roeger and Steve’s #1 good buddy Larry Wilson who worked on every car.

Mr. Kaiser, we at Roddin’ & Racin’ want to thank you for sharing your fantastic world-class artistic creations with us and our thousands of readers in the northwest. “ALL for the Love of Hot Rods and Custom Cars.”
