The Man & The Machine.
Ralph Holguin of RMD.
High school dropout, first witness to gang-culture, and a Latino-American B-Boy Fahshionista scrutinized for refusing to conform to the “defined” classes of culture,race, and socio-political expectations- meet the Man and the Machine behind Long Beach’s creative empire RMD and Garage, Ralph Holguin.
Most recognized for his successful TV show on Discovery Network’s Velocity
Channel, “RMD Garage,” Ralph Holguin managed to take a personal passion project out of his affinity for American Classics and immediately was recognized for his unique customization & modernization in vintage vehicles. Noteworthy as art, or cinema-worthy statues of Americana, power & beauty, Ralph is a catalyst in the automotive industry for his success, Latino-American background, and even multifaceted wardrobe of Gucci, Supreme and Nike. What people don’t know is that Ralph is not a builder; he is an artist and creative visionary who restores core builds in classic cars, culture and most importantly—core values of the American Dream— then, modernizes it.
Built by creativity, cars and culture– Ralph Holguin embodies a custom classic icon and moves to evolve the defined wires of narrow perception and discrimination through his unique brand strategy, humble approach, and multi-faceted network in various industries.
Don’t Dream It, Build It. – Ralph Holguin
Justin & Anna established Flyte Camp in 2010. With a family history of travel trailering that dates back to the 1940‘s, Justin grew up with the love of trailer camping. In his earlier years his father Harry, traveled the country with his parents in various travel trailers of all makes & models, eventually becoming an aircraft sheet metal mechanic by trade. As a child, Justin found himself fascinated not only with vintage travel trailers, but especially ones manufactured by aircraft companies. In 1998, with some persuasion, he talked Anna into taking a look at an “old trailer” for sale. She instantly fell in love with the cool lines and mid-century styling of the 1958 Shasta Airflyte that inevitably became their first baby. Justin and Anna have been enjoying traveling in and restoring vintage travel trailers as a hobby ever since. In 2010, they decided to offer their restoration services to others who appreciated these rolling pieces of art. Flyte Camp was born! Flyte Camp is dedicated to preservation of vintage travel trailers and the vintage camping experience for generations to come.
