Every year finding unrestored classic American cars is becoming a thing of the past. But there’s a secret treasure trove of automotive relics that still exists: Car hoards - the last frontier of the American classic car. Now, WWE superstar Chuck Palumbo and hot rod guru, Rick Dore are out to rebuild legendary cars and help car hoarders thin out their stockpiles of classic cars in Lords Of The Car Hoards.
Chuck Palumbo is an actor, known for WWE Smackdown!, WrestleMania X8 and WWE Judgment Day.
Chuck Palumbo’s life as a motorcycle and car builder began in Providence, Rhode Island at the age of 5, helping his father replace the 3.5 horsepower motor in his mini bike with a 5 horse Tecumseh. At 6’ 6”, 280 pounds, Chuck’s size and drive to be the best took him from the Navy to a college basketball scholarship to becoming a six-time World Tag Team Champion in professional wrestling in the WWE and WCW.
Throughout his career, Chuck has never lost his passion for building, and in 2005 he opened CP Kustoms to work on bikes and cars during his free time from wrestling. When he retired from wrestling in 2008, he made CP Kustoms his full time business. As a self-professed “motorcycle and muscle car addict” living in the San Diego area, it was only a matter of time before Chuck crossed paths with hot rod legend Rick Dore; together in 2013, they launched SLAM.
Chuck shares Rick’s passion for classic rides and fanatical attention to detail. “I pride myself on being a craftsman. One man, one set of hands.”
