Our heart races when we see, touch and hear the sound of a Muscle Car. Passion combined with off the chart skill levels result in the highest workmanship.

Many customers want a 100 percent original example of their favorite Muscle  Car. You may desire a Muscle Machine that looks original on the exterior but is modified with mechanical upgrades that offer better dependability and even more performance then a factory original Muscle Car came with. A G-Machine or a Pro Touring car built to handle like no other.

We can also build your engine to put out maximum performance on 93 Octane and or standard high test pump gas. Initial questions like the final curb weight. Engine compression, including cam profile, transmission and rear end gear ratios are needed to achieve the desired mark. We will build them any way you like.
