Like a lot of high school kids, Curt Strohacker worked in a service station to earn some spending cash, but he also repaired cars in his free time, buying and selling countless vehicles, and learning valuable lessons about restoration. As the market for automotive refurbishing began to take off in the 1970s, Curt realized that proper tools and techniques could save enthusiasts like him time and money.
So in the fall of 1978, Curt launched a business to better serve the burgeoning market of auto restoration and customization hobbyists, and he called it Eastwood.
Since its inception, Eastwood recognizes that change constantly takes place in the marketplace, and so strives to stay abreast of these developments by placing customers' wants and needs at the forefront. In recent years, the market for automotive hobbyists has expanded beyond the "classics", and Eastwood has seen increased requests for products geared towards muscle cars, street rods, trucks, and motorcycles. The explosion of the sport tuner hobby has demanded products that emphasize ease-of-use and variety, as customizers strive to make their vehicles truly unique. In response, the company has continued to be an industry pioneer, adding innovative, high-quality products to its line.
