Cruisin Classics was founded in 1995 by a Las Vegas hot rod enthusiast named Mike Vannozzi. It was Mike’s vision to sell the old muscle car and classic car accessories he remembered from his childhood. He founded www.shrunkenheads.com as part of his vision for a one-stop-shop for gear heads. However, due to a booming real estate business, Mike felt it was necessary to sell the business. The business was purchased by the current owner, Kim Baebler, in March of 2002 under the name Cruisin Classics and re-located to Pennsylvania.
Since acquiring the business, Kim has added more than 100 new items to the Cruisin Classics' already extensive inventory. Items such as the peek-a-boo hula girls, flip down suicide knobs, and rat fink T-shirts.
