A spark of inspiration came in 1975 when Jay Wright saw a custom van on a dealership lot. Soon after, he sold his bicycle to purchase his first airbrush and was later hired by “Braggin-Wagon,” a van builder in Rhode Island. This move was the beginning of a lifetime of art, custom vehicles, and family. Jay and Donna Wright eventually started CPV in 1994 as they grew the business with a focus on custom painting for customers from coast to coast. Today, their son Steve and his wife Dana operate CPV and continue the legacy that started in 1975.
