    For over 3 decades there has been some form of “Gene's” in operation. Back in the late 70’s Gene McKinney was working at Joe Smith Automotive in northeast Atlanta as Joe’s first employee in the Early Ford Parts division. Gene quickly built a reputation for being the man who knew the best combination of original and aftermarket parts to put together an early Ford hot rod.
    In the 80’s Gene’s moved around and grew a good bit. There was “Gene’s Hot Rod Repair” in the shop behind Joe’s. Later adding parts to the repair work he opened “Gene’s Hot Rod Parts and Service”. Gene built a national reputation for his inventory of original and performance parts as well as rare and hard to find pieces. He was a regular at the big swap meets as well as the Salt Flats. In 1989 Gene moved to Lithia Springs GA where he opened "Gene’s Hot Rod & Antique Ford Parts".
    In 1995 Gene moved the shop to his family’s old home place in Riceville Tennessee and in the fall of 2011 I moved the shop a little further up I-75 to Knoxville.
