Ryan Bell, Jeff Wolfson and I were the first three to open up the garage doors at Drift Cave in 2012. We were all around 22, young, excited, and just wanted a place to kick it, party, and work on our cars for the up and coming milestones in our FD careers.
We found this shop in Downtown San Jose. Location was great and it was was the perfect size to house 3 racecars, clients' cars, tools, tires, etc. Pretty much, we found the place to help us all kick off a great year and upcoming achievements in our FD careers.
Ryan was set on kicking ass his first year at Formula Drift in 2012 and having a place to give his LS1 powered s13 a good home during the off season. To fund his season, Drift Cave was the place to give his customers quality fabrication services.
Jeff's goals were to get his Formula D license through Pro-Am grassroots event Golden Gate Drift. He was aiming by 2013 to get his car prepped and ready to compete in 2014. Look out for Jeff "Wild Man" Wolfson because he's going to be turning heads in his rookie FD season this year.
Our shop has evolved so much since 2012. It's only been two years, but there have been improvements in all aspects; the team, office, management, and business goals.
