As part of our company tour series, we plan to visit some excellent
manufacturers in the aftermarket industry throughout the new year. Today
we feature Prototype Concepts / Kaminari in Fountain Valley.
You might remember
our exclusive article from SEMA 99
featuring the new 2000 Kaminari body kit. Well, Kaminari is only a few
minutes from the Mustangworld.com building (in Newport / Costa Mesa).
So we wanted to give readers an inside look at the company. They do
a whole lot more than just body kits.
Kaminari has been around
since 1980 producing body kits, wings, etc. Recently they were taken
over by Prototype concepts, inc, who produces everything from theme
park rides to million dollar telescope structures.
to President Peter Morley, who himself has been involved in professional
rally car racing (racer), engineering, design and fabrication. We also
talked to Ben Wong and Pat Vasquez of Kaminari.
First let's look at some concept drawings that led up to the production
of the new body kit. Dan Ellis, Pasadena Art School grad, has been designing
in the auto industry for many years. He was part of Taurus design team
and many other projects. When Kaminari was looking to do a body kit
for the new Mustang, Dan came up with some concepts.
Eventually the final design looked like this on the new Mustang, you
can see more of this kit in our SEMA
Note: We are taking
pre-orders for this Mustang kit (via the MW Speedshop). For those interested
