Helen Stanley is a custom classic car designer and builder, a lifelong petrol head and co-owner of Skull & Pistons Garage. Stepping out into the custom scene in a big way, Helen is determined to inject rock ‘n’ roll attitude, style and finesse into a sleepy industry screaming out for a shake-up.


Before delving into custom classics full-time Helen previously worked in the fashion industry as a Visual Merchandiser for international brands. Traveling throughout the UK and Europe she developed a strong eye for visuals and design combined with a great understanding of branding, marketing and selling through aesthetics - which Helen applies to her automotive work now.


Helen is a presenter on custom car and motorcycle show Goblin Works Garage, which airs internationally on Quest and Discovery from January 2018. Helen also writes and photographs for blogs, magazines and has her own website, Quarter Mile Style. This lifestyle blog revolves around cars and motorbikes with a focus on custom design, documenting events and trips with her own photographs - epitomising Helen's passion and fresh approach to the scene; "Fuelled by petrol, driven by style."


With many exciting projects on the horizon Helen is currently building a long list of custom classic cars and bikes in between road trips and presenting.
