King Penn (an introduction and history) by WindRestrictor



I just wanted to take the time to let this forum know a little bit about us. We know many of you well already and have made some great friends here. This is not a thread to sell our products, as there are many more for that. This is simply an introduction to all of you new members and a brief history in the making for all of our friends and supporters.

We've had the opportunity to speak with many of you and this has been a popular request. We appreciate the opportunity that was given us to become supporting vendors to this fine SKY forum and hope that we can continue to support it as time passes. I've included a few video links for any of you that like watching videos.


Here is our myspace for all of you that have it... MySpace.com - King Penn Industries - 98 - Male - Garland, Texas - www.myspace.com/windrestrictor




The laser etched and illuminated wind deflector was invented by Robert King Pennington just after the turn of the century. The first roadster that it was designed for was the Mercedes SLK (his personal vehicle). Young Robert was an entrepreneur from the very beginning and was as creative as they come. Back porch projects were becoming almost a daily thing as Robert grew older and became more and more interested in cars and “fixing them up”. It was very normal for my grandfather not to be able to find his power tools because Robert had them scattered about the back porch, the back yard or at his apartment. Fast forward a little bit and he started testing the market with private dealers getting all of the feedback that he could. Eventually he became convinced that the product would be in big demand and made the decision to start producing "Windrestrictors" as he called them. Here's a clip off of the about us section on our website.

About Us
Wind Restrictor , a division of King Penn Industries, was founded by Robert King Pennington who in 1997 went through a liver transplant and battled to save the remainder of his life. Robert felt his ideas and talents were inspired by God and money never came first in his business. The prices of Wind Restrictor products are reasonable and the quality is superb according to thousands of satisfied customers. Unfortunately Robert lost his battle with his health and was called away on April 24th of 2007. Just before his passing he was approached by many dealerships and other automotive companies, to expand his product line and business, and he realized this could no longer be a small home based business that he could handle just on his own. Upon his passing his amazing God-loving family, who have stood by him, and believed in him have chosen to continue his legacy by taking the business to the next level. Wind Restrictor is growing, bringing out new products and carrying on business in a way that we know Robert would be proud. He is still with us in spirit.

It is Robert's vision and desire to offer the best wind blockers (Wind Restrictor ) on the market today that not ONLY offer the deflection of wind turbulence but at the same time offer the patent pending features of illumination and high-end laser etchings to promote your roadster, business or car club.


Robert was known for talking to customers for literally hours at a time like he had known them all his life. He had a kind heart and was very generous. He made many friends in many parts of the world before he passed away and those friends we are still in contact with today.

VIDEO: http://myspacetv.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=39033150
As we began to see Robert getting sick and at the same time working harder and harder to satisfy customers we knew that something had to change. He would hire all of his friends and would always end up getting more and more in debt. Somehow God saw fit for us to make time to begin helping him and we were incorporated in no time at all. Our first building which Robert picked out was near downtown Dallas and we stayed there for over a year. We’re now located in Garland which is a lot closer to home for most of the staff. We strive to always provide the top quality product that our founder created and nothing less. Much time and effort goes into each project order that is received. We have lots of fun helping people personalize their roadsters and could not wish for anything else to do in the world! Below you will see some of our photos growing Roberts legacy.



Our first wall in the new office. = )



Our President! (white hat) = )

Just incase some of you may not know this beautiful young lady,

SKYBABY! One of our most valued friends on here. Came to visit us after Roberts passing here in Dallas. We have some things planned in the future to do together and we are really excited about it.





Here's our corporate display board. Notice me all the way at the bottom!

And finally, giving credit to where credit is due. Here's young Robert working away as always to build his business and satisfy his customers no matter what. He would want you to know that the credit is due to his creator.

Thanks for taking time to check this thread out. We're so thankful to all of you for making this one of the best forums in the world!!!!!!!



Roberts recent release that he began working on at the beginning of 07.

Just wanted people to know a little bit about Roberts company. Thanks also you guys for the great feedback we have been able to add to the site. It's always great to get testimonials as we continue to grow. We've got some really exciting stuff coming up real soon that Rob would be proud of for sure.

This is a touching tribute to Robert...and his family and friends. Steve, this thread was done so well...and a fine introduction to future members...Of all products sold for our car, this is probably the best noticed and desired.
