Vampire Tools gained a lot of interest at the recent SEMA show in Las Vegas, including a number of high-profile garages. Perhaps one of the most notable connections the VT Team made was with the guys of Big Dog Garage, the Burbank establishment of classic car connoisseur Jay Leno.

Burbank, California – The VT team had reached out to Big Dog earlier and had heard of their interest in VamPLIERS and other Vampire Tools. Shortly after connecting with Big Dog Operations Director John Pera at SEMA, the Big Dog team honored Vampire Tools with an invitation to the garage. The Vampire Tools crew made a point to come bearing gifts, offering Leno and his senior mechanics each an engraved set of Vampire Tools to commemorate the meeting. Master mechanic Bernard Juchli offered feedback during the meeting as well, expressing approval for his favorite tool in the lineup, the Vampire Tools 8” Kevlar Shears.

Co Founder of Vampire Tools Safi Qureshey expressed his enthusiasm for the meeting. “It was an enormous honor to have Jay Leno and the Big Dog guys show us their world-famous garage, and show interest in our tools. These guys know the industry, and their word carries a lot of weight, so to have them use our tools was an enormous compliment, and we couldn’t be more pleased. We hope to stay in touch with Mr. Leno and the rest of the Big Dog team in the future.”
