This 1970 Ford Mustang Convertible is going through a complete restoration, and it came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for rusty and damaged sheet metal replacement, bodywork, and paint.

This 1969 Volkswagen Bus looks sweet, but is woefully underpowered. The owner wishes the V8 Speed Team to swap in a far more powerful water-cooled Subaru 4-cylinder eninge for better performance and economy. A new suspension system will allow the VW to lay low, but drive safely at ride-height going down the road. New wiring will keep the Type 2 safe as well.
This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro nickenamed "Shadow" came to the shop in need of a complete restoration. The car had sustained previous crash damage and was purchased disassembled, so the V8 Speed & Resto Team performed numerous panel replacements and mechanical upgrades, including an aluminum LS1 V8 and T56 Magnum 6-speed transmission. The V8 team completed the laser-straight bodywork and paint, including flush glass, tucked bumpers, shaved trim, and Ringbrothers hinges and door handles. A custom interior was installed to match. The car runs on MSD Atomic LS electronic fuel injection and breathes through Magnaflow exhaust.

This 1973 Pontiac Trans Am was restored at a different shop, but out customer brought it to us to complete some final details. It's a beautful Buccaneer Red car, powered by a Butler-built 455.. and then some. We performed some maintenance on the car, and most recently, added a Holley Sniper EFI system and a GearVendors Overdrive. The goals were better driveability and lower cruising RPM on the highway. The Sniper and GearVendors units did the trick! Now this car cruises fast and easy, and looks awesome doing it!
