Rob Dickinson is the owner of Singer Vehicle Design in Southern California. At Singer, Rob and his team restore Porsche 911s in a bespoke manner starting with older Porsches and reimagining them by completely customizing the cars to unbelievable detail. The cars are literally restored, reimagined, and reborn. The level of thought, design, engineering, and detail that go in to each car is beyond most imaginations and is defined by a mantra that is spray painted on his shop wall: Everything is important. In his former career Rob was a musician and singer-songwriter playing in the English alternative rock band Catherine Wheel. Rob recently created a limited edition book about his builds titled: One More Than Ten: Singer And The Porsche 911, published by Stance and Speed.
