Outstanding is the best word to describe this team. The V8 Speed and Resto Shop is a large team of car enthusiasts that are well versed in building, repairing, restoring and/or improving your car. I was extremely happy with the outstanding work that they did on the restoration of my family heirloom. They listened to what I wanted, provided input, guidance and kept me up to date with every step - even though I am 800 miles away, If you are interested in restoring your car the right way, then this is where you need to take your car!

The people at V8 Speed and Resto Shop did excellent work for me and were very professional. They were able to take care of all of my concerns for my car and also helped with some new and creative ideas for my interior. I would recommend them for any car projects that you might have.

V8 Speed & Resto Shop is the best place to go for any work you need done on your classic car our truck. I have been a customer there for several years, starting with maintenance work on my 1979 Jeep and also taking care of my 68 Malibu. Kevin, Kelle, and the whole team have an incredible amount of knowledge about classics, whether it be keeping things orginal or a modern resto upgrade. Recently, V8 completed a front suspension update on my Malibu to improve handling. The crew gave me several options and reccomended a preferred solution. I am continually impressed with their attention to detail. They are meticulous with my classics and I appreciate it very much. By far, the best part of working with V8 Speed & Resto is their customer service. They get it. The team knows everyone has a different style, suttle tastes, and varying budgets. V8 does everything possible to make sure their customers are happy.
