Bruce Harvey

Bruce Harvey

Bruce is a genius when it comes to building, painting and restoring cars. He has a one-of-a-kind gift that one rarely sees. Between the custom paint colors, airbrushing, and body fabrication it is no surprise he has won close to 100 awards including 12 Best of Show awards and the Darryl Starbird Personal Pick Award. In addition, his cars have been featured in countless magazines and show venue billboards, tickets, and other items, and the Internationally Challenged was personally selected for Muscle Cars at the Mansion. Bruce knows it’s a team effort. He collaborates with the Pro Comp team and customers to build a unique car no one has ever seen. His favorite Pro Comp cars are the Willys, Ratical Rod, and ’64 Corvette (featured in Vette Magazine). When he was 12 he would sketch cars all day with the dream he would have his own custom shop. His dad was instrumental with this dream by having Bruce help him in the garage after school and on weekends. In 1988 Bruce opened Pro Comp Custom and has been living his dream and building cars like no other.

Matt

Matt

Matt is one of those rare people who uses both his left brain and his right brain. He has been dazzling Pro Comp customers with his artistry and mechanical abilities since 2008. He started his career as an electronics engineer, but his passion was cars. At 14 he began welding and tinkering with cars. Wanting to live the dream, he went back to school where he specialized in street rod and custom fabrication and graduated from WyoTech receiving the coveted Most Distinguished Student Award in his field. He is a true artist doing easel painting and car sketches using pastels and airbrushing. He is a race car driver on the Noble Star Rally team and competes nationally in both Rally-America and NASA Rallysport events. He still owns the car he had in high school, a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. His favorite Pro Comp car is the Ratical Rod, because of its "awesome presence" and the '73 Malibu, because of the artistic components he uniquely fabricated.

Will

Will

Will moved to Pittsburgh from Moses Lake, WA to attend WyoTech, because of the school's top-of-the-line reputation. This speaks volumes of Will’s love of cars, his passion for restoration, and his desire to be the best. At 15 Will bought his grandfather’s ’77 Chevy pickup and once he got his hands on it he knew his destiny was to restore cars. He is well-versed on all aspects of car restoration, from mechanical to custom fabrication. In fact, he can say he built a chassis from scratch – and it is mind blowing! His favorite Pro Comp Custom car is the '66 Chevy Nova Pro Street and he has a long line of diverse personal favorites. His hobbies are mud racing and working on cars, but he most loves spending time with his baby, William, and his wonderful wife, Kate.

Marc

Marc

Don’t believe it when you hear young people aren’t into classic cars. Marc either traveled through time or he really is a Y-generation car nut. Need proof? In 2013 he won the coveted World of Wheels Rising Star award for best vehicle whose owner is 25 and under with his restored 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. Car passion also runs in his family. One uncle restored cars in his garage, and two others are drag racers. His dad always had a collection of classic cars and Marc started tinkering at the age of 5. He bought his first car at age 15, and still owns it today. He maintained it until he could drive – legally. Recently purchasing his 26th car, the majority of his past and present car collection consists of oddball and rare 80s vehicles, but he recently added a 1978 Dodge Monaco ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ police car to the collection. Marc is well-rounded – he can do body work, assembly, and turn a wrench. He is also a smart cookie; his BA from Washington and Jefferson is in IT with a minor in music and communications. In addition to playing instruments, he is a DJ for parties and on 91.7 WNJR-FM. He also boasts a vinyl record collection of 300+ albums. In his spare time (does he have any?) he likes to buy and sell classic cars, garden, and is an active member in the Pitt Birds Thunderbird club as well as the POCI Pontiac club. His favorite personal car is a factory original 1989 Dodge Caravan Turbo he purchased from Seattle and had shipped to Pittsburgh, and his favorite Pro Comp car is the 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS 409.

Jimmy

Jimmy

Jimmy is one cool cat. And for so many reasons. He was in the Navy, he’s lived all over the US, he was one of the original six members of the V-Dub Culture car club, he designs and builds dual purpose furniture, he’s an outstanding cook, he could star in his own outdoor adventure show, plus he keeps his mind fresh with reading everything from human behavior to economics. But the reason we value Jimmy is his work ethic, intelligence, and his mad fabrication skills. His favorite Pro Comp built car is the 1949 Mercury and his favorite personal car is an air-cooled VW. When not at the shop, you’ll find Jimmy spending quality time with his two best friends - his beloved dog, Highway and his dad.

Dylan

Dylan

Dylan grew up on a big farm with 60 head of cattle and lots of horses. But he wanted more horsepower than the farm offered. How did this farm boy know cars were for him? The day his dad did doughnuts in his ’87 Dodge pickup in the mall parking lot with his little boy in tow. To this day, any circa 80s Dodge truck is Dylan’s favorite ride. When he was 10, he started working with his dad on cars and tractors doing maintenance work until he was old enough to earn his own income helping friends and neighbors with their vehicles. Wanting to advance his skill set, he went to WyoTech and graduated from the collision refinishing program with a specialty in street rod. His first job was with a heavy equipment company as sandblaster and head painter. He carries his strong farm work ethic to Pro Comp as one of our valued body technicians. When Dylan does take time to relax, you will find him airbrushing all sorts of canvases, including model cars. He also enjoys playing retro Nintendo games. His favorite Pro Comp car is Bruce’s 2010 Camaro, because of the creativity involved in fabricating on a new car.

Trevor

Trevor

Trevor was the luckiest kid – he spent his spare time hanging out in his grandfather’s shop while he worked on cool old cars. There was one car in particular that became the family project car – a 1937 Ford. His dad inherited this classic and the childhood memories and stories of the shop will always be a part of him. Wanting to serve and honor his country, Trevor spent four years in the Army as an infantryman. His calling was always cars, so he went to Wyotech to further his mechanical, interior, and fabrication expertise. His hobbies are working on cars, hiking, spending time with his family and doting on his daughter. Trevor’s favorite car is a 1967 Shelby GT500 and his favorite Pro Comp car is the ’49 Mercury, because “it is what a street rod is supposed to be”.

Jesse

Jesse

When you want unique artistry in your metalwork, look no further than Jesse. We are impressed with his creativity and perfectionistic welding skills. He can create a clean, modern look or an intricate custom pattern depending on the build. Jesse was educated early in the art of metal fabrication, since his dad had his own business of refinishing and selling muscle cars. He furthered his expertise by graduating from Wyotech with concentrations in Street Rod and Collision Refinishing. Jesse’s hobbies are all right-brained (as one would expect) and in addition to drawing, he is a professional tattoo artist. His favorite car is the Datsun 240Z and his favorite Pro Comp car is the ’49 Mercury.

Elliot

Elliot

When you visit the shop, you will hear Elliot say that having the opportunity to build someone’s dream car is the world’s greatest job. He’s not kidding – he was on his way to the sunny South, but decided to join our very skilled team. He is mechanically and artistically inclined, so for Elliot building dream cars is second nature. With his background, his career path could go in almost any direction but he believes that “hot rods and customs are where it’s at”, so he attended Wyotech where he had a 4.0 and perfect attendance. His hobbies are cooking (at a chef’s level), riding his Harley, painting/drawing, and playing guitar. His favorite cars are the Nova and ’65 GTO. His favorite Pro Comp cars are the ’57 Imperial and ’49 Mercury.
