CLASSIC CAR REPAIR
Oil change, electrical work, to an engine overhaul on your classic car. We can keep your classic car maintained so that it is always reliable and fun for you to drive. We work on classics, hot rods, customs, lowriders, and more. From a $6,000 fun car to a $100,000 corvette, a $150,000 street rod, a period correct traditional hot rod, race cars, to a classic car that has been passed down through your family. We love and respect them all, and want to help your dreams come true. There is not much we have not worked on over the last 30 years.

Have questions about your classic car and want some virtual vido consulting from your home, we can do that.
CLASSIC CAR INSPECTIONS WILL KEEP YOUR HAVING FUN
We do different levels of inspections as preventative maintenance that will save you break downs, frustrations, tow bills, lost weekend cruises, and possible crashes.
Our specialty is making your classic be reliable and driveable. How your dream was for your classic car experience. We have rented our Ride Free Guided Classic Car Tours and classic car rental fleet in the past to novices driving Chicago to Los Angeles without any issue for an example of what we have done and can do. We can get your classic in that kind of reliabel shape.
MODIFY YOUR CLASSIC CAR
Larger cooling systems so your car does not overheat in the summer. Power disc brakes so that your classic car stops straight, easy, safely, and with reliability and confidence. Add air conditioning systems. Upgraded suspension and steering will make your car ride and drive better. Whatever you want, we have done it.
BUILD YOU CLASSIC CAR
Classic car, hot rod, or custom of your dreams. If you can dream it, we can build it. From a quiet and reliable daily driver your mother could safely tour the country without any “special instructions”, to a wheel standing creation that scares you to drive it.
CLASSIC CAR SALES
Will it cost you more money to repair, modify, or build the car of your dreams than to just buy one mostly done? We can advise you on this. Then we can find the car of your dreams that is already done, or almost how you want it done. And modify it to be your dream. This is often much faster and cost much less money than building you a car from scratch. We can even sell your old car for you.

CLASSIC CAR DETAILING
Classic car detailing. Don’t take your classic car to a regular late model detail shop that does not know the extreme care needed to be used with a classic car. We show extreme care and understanding of classics and customs. We understand how careful you need to be around classic and custom paint jobs. We know how to operate your classic. We understand for example how careful you have to be with original or old interiors, how many classics might not be as watertight as late model cars and more.
