Graham Edney

Graham Edney

General Manager

Graham is certainly the glue that keeps our team together. He is a lover of custom built hotrod’s and also builds them himself. His love of custom cars made him a natural fit for Sidewinder along with years of being in his own business and dealing with customers and staff alike. Graham was diagnosed with cancer in late 2012, but after a bout of chemotherapy and radiation he has come out ahead and looking forward to many more years with his grandchildren.  After losing 86 lbs due to the treatment he says “it’s the most successful diet I’ve ever been on, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone” Graham
