Welcome to Bull in the Basement. This site is to share my passion in the value of working with your hands which is something I learned from my father. Being raised without the proverbial silver spoon in our mouths, we looked to our hands to build our dreams. Ultimately, I would spend 17 years of my life building a Lamborghini Countach from scratch and in all places, my basement.
What has been a lifelong vision finally came to fruition in 2008 when we used a backhoe to dig a ramp next to my house, busted out a basement wall and breathed life into what I call my Bull in the Basement. To say the least, this journey has been a wild and challenging ride that has had a profound impact on my family, friends and life as a whole. It is an insane, yet an inspirational story that I wish to share with the world.
I have a wonderful wife named Eileen, who has supported an obsessive husband with a car in our basement for 17 years. She has put up with unimaginable extremes, both financially as well as mentally and I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for her tenacity to believe in me.
We sincerely thank you for your interest in our website and you can support us by spreading the word of this website and our message.
Thank you very much-Ken& Eileen Imhoff
I have been giving this a lot of thought lately; maybe I wasn't supposed to sell the car. If you have watched the video below, you can see my heart wasn't in it, but not for the reason you might expect.
Last year I gave my life to Jesus Christ. So you might ask what does that have anything to do with selling or not selling the car. Let me explain:
The car started out as a mission without GOD in my life. It was an
exercise of human self-centered, egotistical, selfishness that just about ended
my marriage and losing our home. The car at this point has been a constant
reminder of what I have done and I just wanted it out of my life. The car goes
up for sale. As my faith begins to grow, I realize GOD gave me the talent to do
what I do and there is nothing wrong with that; my only mistake was not using it to glorify Christ. How could I do
that? Answer: Go on a mission to tell my story how I was saved in Jesus Christ
and use the car as a visual symbol of my quest for worldly treasures. I think
the car is most fitting don't you? If you would like to know more of my next
adventure, stay tuned. I believe GOD has a lot more in store…….Ken
