Ever since growing up in Durham, NC, Leon Kaplan has been in love with all things motorized, earning him his nickname, the Motorman. After moving to California, he tried his hand at auto racing, aviation, and boating. For decades, his auto shop on 3rd Street was a staple of the mid-Wilshire area. He has also shared his love for the car with the masses through his radio show on KABC-AM, which is the longest running uninterrupted show on the network. Leon has also has a long-running relationship with the Petersen.
