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.
The galleries are sorted by the year of the car, from oldest to newest.
This 1979 Pontiac Trans Am was originally equipped with a 403 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, and although it was pretty hot for the time, it just isn't enough for the owner today. The car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some high-performace upgrades including a GM LS3 485 HP V8 engine fed by a Holley EFI system, and it will handle better thanks to a Ridetech Street Grip suspension system with YearOne wheels. Wilwood brakes will haul it down in short order. Before all the fun, we had to fix some rusty floors, which was a good time to fabricate a custom firewall for the car as well. Follow along with all the progress here!
