Giving Old Pistons New Attitude

I find great joy in creating the pistons I make, and in the joy they bring others. I believe every piston heading to the scrap heap has a story to tell. I try to leave behind imperfections or damage when possible to help preserve the history of the piece.

Clint Eastwood is well-known for his quintessential ‘spaghetti western’ personas. His characters typically offer up a mean scowl while biting half a cigar. That’s exactly the look Doug Rogers was going for with his PistonFace artwork. Rather than letting pistons get thrown in the trash or melted down, Doug, under his PistonFace moniker, retains the history of these pistons and makes them into pieces of art that emote and tell a story.

“I’ve developed a signature look,” Rogers says. “The first face I did had kind of a scowl, bite and chomping down on a cigar, which was basically due to Clint Eastwood. I was a big Clint Eastwood fan and I just remember the drifter character from the spaghetti westerns. He always had half a cigar and was always biting down on it with a scowl. He’s kind of mean-looking and that’s what I wanted to do, and it goes with my slogan – ‘giving old pistons new attitude.’”

In the world of engine rebuilding, we’re inherently giving old engines new attitude and a second chance at life, but in more cases than not, many engines and parts become forgotten trash. However, there are a number of people who have gotten creative with old engine components to turn them into something else, and Doug Rogers of PistonFace in Salem, OR, is a great example of how you can rescue little pieces of engine history one piston at a time.

It’s his passion for art and history that we want to shine a spotlight on. Due to that passion and creativity, Doug can no longer walk passed a piece of metal without seeing something that could be done with it.

“What’s weird is I can’t walk past metal now and not see something,” Rogers says. “Before, I would have scrapped things or threw things away. Now, I realize I can use that for something, so it’s made me a bit of a hoarder.”


Doug’s love for all things automotive didn’t simply start with his PistonFace artwork . He’s been around car culture his whole life and has spent his entire career in it. 

“For me, it all started with the movie American Graffiti, I guess,” he says. “We had American Graffiti cruise nights in El Cajon, CA. As a kid, I had all these images of fast cars. In the neighborhood there was always these fast cars and hot rods and stuff. 

“I graduated high school in ‘84 and I got a job at a gas station. All my money went into building cars. We used to illegal drag race and all that stuff. Second Street was a big deal in El Cajon – it always made Hot Rod magazine’s top cruise spots. That car culture was all around there. 

“In 1992, I had worked at the gas station for eight years and that was kind of winding down and they were changing direction. I was 25 or 26 and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. My parents lived up in Salem, OR, and there is a community college nearby called Chemeketa Community College, which had an automotive program. I already had about $30,000 in tools – I’d been buying Snap-on since I was 18 – so I decided to go into the automotive program.”

Doug graduated in 1994 and got a job working as a technician in a GM dealership. Fast forward to 2018 – he had been working 24 years straight with GM dealerships as a service technician doing drivability and electrical. 

“At that time, I got an opportunity to go back to Chemeketa Community College and work as an automotive instructor,” he says. “That’s what I do now.” 

Part of accepting the automotive instructor position meant Doug had to take a sizable pay cut, and his brother-in-law, who is a teacher in California, suggested Doug find something he loved to do and make some money on the side. 

“When I was still working as a tech, I had a jet ski piston that I scratched a face on with a cordless Dremel,” he says. “I drilled some holes for eyes and a nose. I took it to work and showed my friends who thought it was really cool and they asked if I could make them one. Of course, I said OK. We found a junk piston around the shop and I carved somebody up one. The next thing you know, I put the photos of it on Facebook and everybody started asking if I sold those.”

Doug had found his side gig, although he admits, his early piston faces were fairly rudimentary. He still has his very first one in his office, which he made in November 2017. 

“My friend talked me into getting on Instagram and that’s where it just took off,” Rogers says. “It motivated me. I’ve met other artists through the internet who I’ve collaborated with and I’ve made some good friends around the world even though we haven’t met in person. It’s just awesome. I now have 8,500 followers who appreciate what I do. It’s just been a blessing. It’s kind of a therapy.”

Looking at Doug’s piston art, you might guess he has a fairly extensive art background, but it seems his talents came naturally and have been honed over the years.

“I’ve always had a little bit of an artsy side, but I’ve never considered myself to have a talent really,” he says. “I don’t know where my ability comes from other than I just like things that look neat. I’m not the first person ever to carve a piston, or the last to do it, but I just developed a style that I like. I like them to emote. I like them to have an attitude. That’s just my personality. I’m kind of a jokester and I like custom culture art like Ed Roth (Rat Fink) and stuff like that. I don’t know where it came from, but it’s evolving and I’m going with it.”

How does Doug make his works of piston art? He primarily carves them using hand tools and a lot of creativity.

“I just have small tools here,” he says. “I don’t have a lathe or any machines. I do this with Dremels, hand bits and hand drills. Right now, I have a Craftsman. My tools are just mechanic’s tools – thread inserts, angled side cutters, various hand drills, files, micro files, brass hammers, miniature ball peen hammers, and crescent wrenches.

“I have tons of drill bit sets with different coatings. I have an 8˝ drill press for my bench that I do some stuff. For the most part, when I drill a piston out, I have a DeWalt cordless drill that I use because they have a little clutch on them. I just hold it by hand with a box to catch the chips.”


“A guy sent me a ‘55 Harley Panhead where his throttle plate screws came out. I did what I do to the piston and then I was able to leave the damage there. I also just did a 352 Ford piston for a guy who has a killer old Ford wagon and the piston has all kinds of detonation damage on the top and it just looks really cool, so I retained the damage. That piston was probably going to be melted down and thrown in the trash. Now it’s a story and it’s tied to him.”

You might also notice that many of Doug’s pistons feature a bullet cigar to complete the look or add to the piston’s story. Doug saves those old bullet casings specifically for his art.

“Using shell casings are kind of my thing,” he says. “One of my hobbies was shooting and reloading ammunition. I keep those spent casings. If you go out to a shooting range or into the woods where people have been shooting for sport, you’ll find brass all over the ground. That’s more trash that could be reused.
