Auto-Rod started business in 1980. The first electrical race car system of its kind was developed and patented by its owner, John Zizza. By word-of-mouth only, the product was off to a fast pace since its conception. Additional product lines were added and we started doing automotive trade shows to explain these innovative products. In 1982 an updated version was submitted to the SEMA show in Las Vegas and received an award in the category of "Best New Product" for that year. At that point its products were quickly picked up by national warehouses.
Through the years many additional products have been added based on conversations with individual racers trying to solve requirements for their cars. All racers suggestions are given serious consideration and John continues to lead the way in development of new products to aid racers.
We are quite proud to say all units are still hand-made, one-at-a-time. We are also proud of the fact that our products are all "MADE IN AMERICA."
