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 cool 1957 Ford Thunderbird came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in tribute to the owner's Father who owned several of these cool Birds over the years. Today, we're going to make this one more powerful and reliable for years of trouble-free cruising. The V8 Speed & Resto Shop team will be installing a custom chassis, complete with Wilwood brakes, coil-over shocks, and upgrade the sway bars for better handling. The 'Bird will have far more Thunder thanks to a new Ford Racing 5.0 V8 cranking out 430 HP and over 400 lbs.-ft. of torque. Additionally, we're installing a 6-speed automatic transmission spinning that steam back to a new 9" rear axle. Upgraded audio and lighting will make it even more fun to drive. Follow along as we make the upgrades on this slick '57 Thunderbird!
