We work on a wide variety of Hot Rods, Classics, Muscle Cars, Trucks, and Late Model Performance cars at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop. These photo galleries just cover some of the cars we’ve built, upgraded, restored, or repaired over the years.
This very nice 1968 Oldsmobile 442 tribute car is wearing a crisp restoration and features some modified parts intended to give this car better handling and drivability. It’s not a numbers-matching W30 car, although it looks like one. It’s got 17” American Racing wheels, Wilwood brakes with a Hydratech hydraulic brake assist unit, Hotchkis control arms and sway bars, and a few other goodies. It’s powered by a big block Olds engine, but the owner wanted increased reliability, as he drives this car on cross country trips. His solution is a GM LSA supercharged 6.2 liter V8 “Connect & Cruise Kit” which also provides an overdrive transmission. It’s not an Oldsmobile engine, but the owner has several other numbers matching 442 W30 cars, and this one is not a “numbers car”, and he likes the technology and abilities of the LSA engine and the 4L85E transmission.
