About Ted Cox
Ted has always been a “car guy” beginning to build hot rods, drag cars, and custom vehicles all the way back in his high school days in West Los Angeles.
In the late 50’s he could be found most Friday or Saturday nights cruising Hawthorne Blvd and the drive-in restaurants of West Los Angeles where other hot rodders would “hang out”. Favorite spots included Scrivner’s Drive-in (Crenshaw and Manchester), the Wich Stand (Slauson and Overhill Dr), the Clock (Sepulveda near LA Airport), Tiny Naylor’s (Manchester and Sepulveda) and Hamburger Handout (at the corner of Sepulveda and Centinela).
Many a street race was arranged at these locations. Legal drag racing was just beginning in those days at locations such as Lions Drag Strip in Long Beach, Santa Ana Airport and San Fernando Valley. Ted raced at all those locations (street and strip) in the late 50’s and early 60’s.
Ironically, many years later near the end of his professional career (1998) as CEO for the Boy Scouts of America Council in San Diego, Ted helped with a program in San Diego designed to get street racers off the street and onto a safe and legal drag strip. The RaceLegal.com program was formed in 1998 by Dr. Stephen J. Bender from San Diego State University's Graduate School of Public Health. Ted served on the Board of Directors for RaceLegal in San Diego for many years ... the program ran for more than 20 years and was dramatically successful in reducing dangerous street racing in the San Diego area.
Ted’s professional experience includes developing—and then selling—several businesses, followed by an eighteen-year career with the Boy Scouts of America.
While serving as Director of Field Service in Orange County, CA and then as CEO for the Scout Council in San Diego, Ted enjoyed major successes in recruiting and motivating top-level volunteers and consistent success in fundraising and endowment development. When he retired from the BSA in 2001, he had been the CEO of one of the nation’s largest Boy Scout Councils for nine years. Following his retirement from the BSA, Ted has been a consultant to Action Donation Services. Action is one of the premier processors of high value donated boats and yachts in America -- benefiting some of America's finest and best known charities.
Ted is now retired and living in Alpine, Ut with his wife of 46 years, Barbara. He continues his hobby of fast cars and hot rods. Barbara supports his hobby and has been the Crew Chief of his Bonneville Land Speed "Stealth" race car that they are now ready to sell.
Ted and Barbara continue to “cruise” in Utah in their very nice 34 Ford with Chevy engine that Ted completed in the late 90’s..
