The Origin Story
Chad’s original name for his garage was Green Goblin Customs, but since becoming a household name, the Green Goblin name created licensing issues with Marvel and Disney.
He has since rebranded into Hiltz Auto Co.
Not much is known about Chad’s early life, as he doesn’t care to divulge many details. However, we do know his passion for cars has been a lifelong dream that has led to his success both financially and in life.
We also know that he trained under the watchful eye of Gene Winfield.
Chad’s philosophy is to find beat-up old cars that have seen better days and give them new life using scrap metal, common items, and an ingenious mind for design.
He has been known to use old airplane parts and parts of household furniture in his creations.
Bad Chad Customs ran for two seasons on the Discovery Channel and was produced by Love Productions.
Most of the show was filmed in Chad’s shop in the small Novia Scotia town of Canning (population 2,500).
Chad Hiltz is not married, but, he is engaged to longtime partner Jolene MacIntyre since 2017. We are unaware of any marriage plans.
“I think the key to staying in love is staying grateful,” she captioned a photo with Chad on Instagram.
Jolene was often featured in Bad Chad Customs and is known as the co-partner in Chad’s auto customization operation. She has a Bachelor of Commerce in Finance.
Before life with Chad, Jolene worked as a supervisor at a golf resort after graduation, and later as a waitress at a pool house, which is where she supposedly met her future fiancé.
Jolene has worked with Chad on several notable builds, including a 1939 Studebaker, and a 1957 Cadillac Coupe DeVille.
Chad’s sons, Colton and Aaron, both share their father’s passion for classic cars.
Colton worked with his dad as a full-time apprentice, while Aaron also worked with his father on the production of the show.
