Salty Detroit was born from the days when milk came in bottles and cars had more ashtrays than seat belts.

 

I purchased the authentic 1950's machine shop in 2018 and transformed it into a multi-functional commercial space - where friends, artists and makers could collaborate and create.

From hot rods and pinups to garage-inspired fashion and design - Salty Detroit is a brand that reflects my passion for American history, vintage automobiles and timeless craftsmanship.

 I consider it a privilege to contribute to the nostalgic, can-do spirit of the Motor City.

 

Because after all, this isn't fuckin' California.

We recently opened our doors to renowned pinup photographer @vargaphotco for a sold-out three day shoot and open house. Dozens of local women showed up to get their hair and makeup done by the lovely @the.vagabondvixen and pose in a safe, clean and private environment. Special thanks to Dead Last CC, SuspectS CC, Hoodrats CC, Troy @ Chrysler, Mikey 'Bobby' Hayes, T-Shirt Dave and Bob.

"... I'm extremely happy with how they turned out!! Everyone's that I've seen looks amazing!!"
