Our Staff

We all love Classic cars, Hot Rods and Muscle Cars! You have to be extremely motivated to see a Classic restoration through from start to finish! We get this motivation from our love of cars. Though it may seem like a dream job, that�s not always the case. Try blocking a Sedan delivery 3-4 times prior to painting. That will wipe you out! Or, how about the frustrations of new parts not fitting after waiting two or three weeks for them to arrive. As much hard work and frustration can be involved the final results of the finished product far exceed pains. We are all highly motivated by building only the finest Muscle Cars and Hot Rods around.
