Will Lockwood’s Work with Kindig-IT Design: When Did He Join?
Will Lockwood, also known as William Jennings Lockwood, became a part of Kindig Designs in 2003. He grew up in Layton, Utah, where his love for automobiles began.

After finishing high school, Will joined the U.S. Army and worked as a tank hull mechanic. According to his bio on Kindif-It Designs’ website, he later joined HPC in 1992, where he met Dave Kindig.
When Dave established Kindig-It Design, he invited Will to join as an engineer and fabricator, which he did a couple of years later. Since then, Will has been a constant support to Dave and his team.
Hence, at Kindig-It Designs, Will is mainly responsible for bringing imaginary automobile designs to life.
