Henie Kim’s Mohenic Garages
After a budding career in the Korean furniture industry during the mid-2000s he closed up shop only because cheap Chinese furniture put him out of business. He then morphed into a fashion photographer where he honed his creativity until 2012 when he rebuild his Hyundai Galloper SUV for camping. This set him up to start Mohenic Garages in 2013. From that point on Henie Kim has been using his creative side to rebuild Hyundai Galloper SUVs which are in demand in Korea today.
Why I liked this article because it highlights how simple automobile and SUV designs are still in demand. Today’s automobile and SUV designers are like home builders that build the biggest most expensive house on the smallest lot to maximize profit. We need to go back to basics will less expensive vehicles like the original peoples car the VW Beetle that sold for $1,800 back in the early 1960s. Today VW is a premium car not for your average Joe. My car is a 1999 Honda CRV LX with 280,000 miles on it. I paid about $18,000 for it in California. A new 2016 CRV LX has a MSRP just north of $24,000. Since 1999 Honda designers have slowly added more and more features to the CRV lineup driving the cost up each year.

Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
