Chip Foose is the host of Velocity's reality series "Overhaulin'."

Chip Foose began working on automobiles at age seven for his father's company, Project Design, in Santa Barbara. Foose attended the Art Center College of Design for two years in 1982, then began working at ASHA Corporation for four years before returning to the Art Center to complete his education, graduating in 1990. Following graduation, Foose then worked full-time for Sterenberger Design and part-time for Boyd Coddington. Later, Chip became the president of Coddington's company Hot Rods by Boyd. While working for Coddington, Foose designed many of Coddington's well-known creations such as the Boydster I and II.

In 1998, Foose started his own automotive and product design company called Foose Design in Huntington Beach, California. In 2001, Foose began his TV career by acting as a consultant for the TV series "Titus" before going on to be the custom painting consultant for the 2006 movie "Cars". Foose gained more exposure in 2003 as a result of a TLC documentary on his design and creation of a modified 2002 Ford Thunderbird called the Speedbird. In 2004, the TLC version of Overhaulin' began to air with Foose as the star of show. Other television credits include hosting the series "American Icon: The Hot Rod" for Discovery's HD Theater. 

Throughout his career Foose has been honored with several awards including induction into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame at Peterson Publishing's 50th Anniversary at SEMA (Special Equipment Marketing Association); the prestigious AMBR (America's Most Beautiful Roadster) Award in 1999 and 2000; the coveted Ridler Award in 2002, and in 2003 Foose was inducted into the Grand national Roadster Show Hall of Fame.
