Father's Day Catalog Cover with the Jarels'


The annual California Car Cover Father's Day catalog cover always features a family of automotive enthusiasts that is as passionate about cars as much as we are. This year is definitely no exception as we visited the workshop of Mark and Haven Jarel.

We first heard of this father-son duo and their craftsmanship at the Deus Biker Build-Off. If you haven't seen the Petrolicious feature on the Jarels' it is worth a watch on You Tube. Mark and Haven are both enthusiasts and builders. After we found out that they were SoCal residents and fans of California Car Cover, we knew we found the right guys.



Mark and Haven live and breathe anything with wheels. From slot cars and skateboards to motorcycles and Model A's their shop is a vintage museum. We had a blast checking out the collectibles and memorabilia they have accumulated.

Mark's 1929 Ford Model A is a hot rod using 1940's technology and styling. It features a '36 flat head engine and 3-speed transmission.

Mark and Haven drive, build and surf together on a pretty much daily basis. The love of automobiles is being passed from one generation to another. Thank you to the Jarels' for opening their shop to us and participating in our photo shoot.
