Portraits: Hot Rod enthusiast Cody Wendelbo
He graduated from Fargo’s Oak Grove High School, attended North Dakota State University and Minnesota State University Moorhead, and landed a job in manufacturing. He opened his own car shop three years ago with his dad, Carl. “It’s nice to work with family,” Wendelbo said.
He’s a member of the local Toppers Car Club and owns a few nice rides of his own: a 1977 Corvette, a 1934 Ford and a 1930 Ford coupe.
“I love my job because I get to work on other cars and help them build their dream rides. It’s just a fun group of people in the F-M area. I just can’t wait until the downtown cruise nights start up again.”
