Products Company Overview
1975, our parent company, TOMSUPPLY Company saw vast voids in the radio-controlled
hobby industry markets, and sought to bring unique, cottage-industry
product lines to a then emerging industry.
After over 900 product lines had been amalgamated into the first general
hobby catalog, the industry took shape, and what was once a rag-tag
band of garage purveyors, selling parts mostly by luck, became what
is now the backbone of the hobby industry. TOMSUPPLY sold out to a large
conglomerate in 1979, and, for the most part, the founder, Tom Lawson
spent his time collecting vintage cars.
As his venture became more successful, Tom found time to return to his
first love - Hot Rods. He acquired everything from muscle cars to hot
rods to dragsters to street rods, and again the market voids became
apparent, and Wow Products was born. Some of the best design engineers
and fabricators in the automotive industry were commissioned to identify
and develop products that meet the needs of both the hobbyist street
rodder as well as the professional hot rod shop.
