No, it’s not a car show… the V8 Speed and Resto Shop crew brought some of their personal rides in for picture day!

The mission of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop is simple… to connect people to the best times of their lives through things with wheels.  

This could mean restoring a family heirloom classic car to reconnect with family experiences from the past, or maybe helping a person get behind the wheel of a Muscle Car they always wanted.    Maybe it’s obtaining a similar car to what Dad had back in the day – you know, the one you used to steer on his lap before your feet could reach the pedals.    Perhaps it’s helping someone get their old high school car safe and roadworthy again for a new generation to enjoy.     

Perhaps it is dreaming up the ultimate show car and touring it around the national circuit, or building a track-capable high performance car to enjoy on weekend blasts.  Whatever it is, the V8 Speed & Resto Shop team can help make it happen.    Whether you’re ready to reconnect with the good old days, or you’re looking to drive into a whole new world of experiences, the V8 Team is ready to help.
