Chris Bendet is the Founder of That’s My Wheels where they design and manufacture custom display boards for your special vehicles. The idea was born from a father and son’s mutual love of everything automotive. Chris has spent 20 plus years as a photojournalist, corporate photographer, and the owner of a portrait studio. His idea for creating display boards for collectors and their automobiles came to him when his father was selling a 1970 GTO. Chris thought it would be a great way to better market the car at an auction. Today That’s My Wheels provides enthusiasts with a custom and personal way to promote their cars at events, shows, auctions, cars and coffee, or in the garage.
