Galpin Auto Sports, a division of Galpin Motors, takes center stage in a new automotive series, DRIVEN on the Discovery channel. The series follows Galpin President and COO Beau Boeckmann, custom car builder Dave Shuten and customization specialist “Mad Mike” Martin as they uncover historic, one-of-a-kind cars to restore and reintroduce back into automotive history books.
In the series premiere, Boeckmann and the Galpin team resurrect a one-of-a-kind Pantera that Carroll Shelby had modified for a secret project with legendary auto industry executive Lee Iacocca. It was part of a development program that would evolve into the Viper. With a focus on vehicle performance and car culture, the Galpin crew will take part in some of the biggest automotive competitions, test their vehicles on the toughest tracks, and unveil some of the craziest and most significant cars to ever come through their shop.
On the show, Beau Boeckmann, who grew up in the Galpin Motors showroom and is the driving force behind Galpin Auto Sports, leads the team. He is a diehard enthusiast with a passion for rare, historical cars and original vintage customs. Dave Shuten of Galpin Speed Shop, a division of Galpin Auto Sports, has a long history with Boeckmann and Galpin. He has been the “lead” on several major car builds and historical restoration projects. His portfolio includes: Pink Panther Limo, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth Orbitron, and the ’34 Ford 5-window coupe known as Iron Orchid. Alongside Boeckmann and Shuten, is the team’s customization specialist, “Mad Mike” Martin – most famous for his wild projects on MTV’s Pimp My Ride.
