Steve Strope

Nobody knows cars like Steve Strope, the owner and visionary behind Pure Vision.

Located in Simi Valley CA, Pure Vision has quickly become a world known street machine fabrication shop. In just a few short years, Pure Vision has acquired multiple magazine features, covers and centerfolds, and 3 coveted Hot Rod Magazine Top Ten Cars of the Year awards.   Steve and Pure Vision had its own episode on the hit TLC series RIDES, plus has been in numerous TV and web car related shows.  Pure Vision's cars were used in the Green Hornet and Fast and Furious 3, 4 and 6 movies.  Pure Vision signed with Mattel's Hot Wheels brand and had its own line of die cast.  Pure Vision has also designed and built project cars for Hot Rod Magazine, Hot Wheels, Verizon Wireless, Keystone Light Beer, and Rustoleum.  Pure Vision has also won the Ford "Best of Show" Design Award at SEMA twice. Owner Steve Strope has been the host of Car Craft Magazine Radio on the Entertainment Radio Network.

Pure Vision cars have a very signature concept/build style that can be described as simple, straight foreword and well detailed. People just seem to know when it's a Pure Vision original.

Pure Vision was founded by owner Steve Strope.  Strope, a New York transplant came to California in search of a job in the hot rod industry and wound up starting his own company.  He is thankful for the many people (now friends) in the industry that helped get Pure Vision off the ground.

Based on hard work, great designs, and a lot of late nights, Steve has laid a strong foundation for Pure Vision to grow upon.
