Meet the Machinists
Don Gould (owner)
Automotive Enthusiast and builder for over 40 years. A though always goes through Don’s head when he first steps into a car. “How can I make it better” It is this never ending quest for perfection that inspired him to start Goulds Pro Cylinder Heads inc. Racing is in his blood and when you walk into the office you can still see a spark in his eye when you talk to him about your latest project.
As most children played with legos, Jr grew up playing with Pistons, rings, and Camshafts. Don Gould Jr. has spent the majority of his life around engines and has been machining and building full time since 1998. Some call him a natural, we are proud to call him our head machinist.
