ToyMakerz is a custom vehicle fabrication shop in Reidsville, NC that brings to life the colorful and often inconceivable designs of David Ankin. This process, and the fun & games that take place along the way, is the basis of ToyMakerz, the TV show.
Moving into its 3rd season, ToyMakerz has moved to a new home at A+E Networks where it will air on History and FYI starting March 10, 2019. The 8 brand new 1-hour episodes will feature everything from monster trucks, to tanks, to racecars, to drones, to fully custom never-before-seen exhibition cars, and even appearances by American icons Richard Petty and Dean Cain. It’s a must-see.
David is a former stunt-driver and racer turned extreme vehicle fabricator who sets the vision for ToyMakerz. If he can see it. He and the team can build it. Then he drives the heck out of it... Ankin is constantly on the search for the coolest new techniques & features, striving to build that one-of-a-kind motor machine that appears in the poster on your wall.
Dave is the business brains behind ToyMakerz LLC and is Ankin’s partner in the venture. Dave has a keen interest in specialty vehicle manufacturing and also serves as CFO of Tanom Motors, a reverse trike manufacturer based in VA.
