Bad Chad Customs is a brand new reality show which premiered on Discovery Channel this new year's day. The show follows works of car artist Chad Hiltz (Bad Chad) as he creates masterpieces out of scrap cars at his shop, Green Goblin Customs.

Who is Chad Hiltz from Bad Chad Customs?

Chad Hiltz is a car enthusiast from Canada who has been customizing cars for over two decades. The 47-year-old discovered his interests in vintage cars at a very young age. His uncle's 1956 Ford Crown Victoria was his favorite car during his childhood. 

Before starting out as a professional car fabricator, Chad did several jobs. He has worked in a grain mill and a chicken processing plant during his teenage and early 20s.

A father to three kids, Chad is currently engaged to Jolene MacIntyre. His fiancée is a manager at his shop. His eldest son Colton also appears on the show alongside builder Aaron and mechanic Alex.

Where is Green Goblin Customs located?

Originally hailing from Kingsport, Nova Scotia, Canda, Bad Chad started customizing cars in his hometown. He opened a car customization shop on an oceanfront property in Kingsport. He had to leave the place as the locals did not like the sound of his machines running day and night. The locals also complained that the car parts ruined the ocean view. 

In 2004, Chad moved to his new home in Canning, Nova Scotia, with his ex-girlfriend Mandy Mosher and their daughter Harlee. In the outskirts of Canning, he built his new shop himself and began working unrestricted. 

He named his new shop Green Goblin Customs and it is the same location where Bad Chad Customs is being primarily filmed at present. The show travels to various locations in Canada and the USA where Chad collects the beat-up old cars to customize.

Chad's new shop sits on a vast property where Chad hosts an event called Rockabilly Weekend, every year. In the event, which has been running since 1998, car enthusiasts from all over the world come to watch his masterpieces as well as bring their own creations.

In 2017, Chad built a replica of Ralph Lauren's iconic Bugatti from scratch and shared his work progress on social media. It was when he caught the attention of the producers and got signed for his own show. With the success of Bad Chad Customs, Hiltz is no longer allowed to earn money on the name "Green Goblin" due to licensing issues. The business is in the process of changing its name to Hiltz Auto Co. and has already launched official merchandise under the new brand name.
