Surf City Garage Names Kahn Media Agency of Record

Moorpark, Calif., Feb. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SCG Brands®, the makers of America's Favorite Detailing Products™ and parent company of Surf City Garage® and Paradise Road® Car Care, announced today that it has retained Ventura County-based Kahn Media Inc. as its Agency of Record. Kahn Media will be charged with public relations, social media marketing, brand journalism and strategic communications to help the Orange County-based company market its "Enthusiast Grade®" and "Professional" washes, waxes, polishes and surface care products, which are available nationwide as well as in over 20 countries across the globe.

"Surf City Garage has grown at an incredible rate since we launched our car care line in 2007," said company Founder and CEO Tim Miller. "We chose Kahn Media to grow even faster. We're entrepreneurs, so we were impressed with Kahn's non-traditional approach and personal relationships with high-profile car builders and top industry brands."

Considered "The fastest growing detailing product company on the planet," Surf City Garage has roots that go back to 1970, when Tim Miller bought his first car, a 1967 Pontiac GTO with a 400 V8 and a
4-speed, which he raced at various tracks around Southern California. Later, Miller began acquiring other cars and his American Muscle Car Collection became the foundation of Surf City Garage, based in Huntington Beach, California -- "Surf City, USA." Miller's stable now includes more than 100 vintage cars as well as a recreation of a 1950's Flying A gas station and a complete restoration shop, among many other artifacts of automobilia and Americana.

Surf City Garage's detailing products were born out of its owner's love for the automobile and are guided by the principles of "Do no harm to cars" and "Give'm their money's worth." Surf City's products are also backed by a personal guarantee from Founder Tim Miller: If this product isn't the best you've ever used, I'll personally give you your money back.

Commenting on the new business relationship, Kahn Media president Dan Kahn said, "Our company is full of hands-on car people, and we're excited to work with the world's only Enthusiast Grade® product line. The Surf City Garage brand is already well known and highly respected. Between its car care product line and the Surf City Garage American Muscle Car Collection, we have incredible opportunities for educating enthusiasts about proper car detailing -- while entertaining them at the same time."

A PR, Creative Services and Social Media Marketing firm with deep roots in the automotive industry, Kahn Media will work with Surf City Garage and its associated brands to promote product awareness, educate enthusiasts about premium car care trends and forge new relationships in the automotive industry. Dynamic public and media relations campaigns coupled with Kahn Media's pioneering concept of brand journalism will elevate Surf City Garage's visibility even further.

Surf City Garage (, an SCG Brands® company, is based in Huntington Beach, California. It is the fastest growing detailing product company on the planet and the only one that maintains its own restoration shop and collection of more than 100 vintage muscle cars. To keep the cars looking great, Tim Miller, the company's founder and CEO, tried every car care product around, but he simply wasn't satisfied with the quality or performance. So he developed his own Enthusiast Grade® detailing products -- recognized around the world as the best anyone can buy. Made By Enthusiasts, For Enthusiasts®, Surf City Garage Enthusiast Grade® Detailing Products are sold at leading retailers such as Walmart, at major auto parts stores including Pep Boys, NAPA, and Lordco, and at other leading auto parts stores and speed shops throughout North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
