History

As far back as he can remember, Chris Rodriguez was under the hood of a car with his dad. He grew up in a garage, which meant sweat, grease and wrenches were second nature to him. Throughout school, Chris spent his free time restoring several American classics with his dad, and what at first seemed like father-son bonding, later grew into his love and passion for American classic cars. Chris honed his restoration skills and his passion developed into a dream business that he and his wife, Samantha, partnered in on.

When he made the decision to grow from a hobby to a business, he knew that there were four things that would be non-negotiable:

1

Cutting corners is not an option

“Nothing bothers me more than when people try to make something seem pristine, but cheat their way to get there. I believe in hard work and doing the things that other people aren’t willing to do, to get the results that other people will never get.”

2

Doing what we love comes first

“I don’t work on these classics for the money, I do it because I love it, which is why I decided to only work on projects I get excited about and only build cars our team all love ourselves.”

3

Never skimp on quality

“We only use the best products and believe in getting the job done right the first time; there is no settling.”

4

Honest is the best policy

“I believe in authenticity, and always being straight forward with our clients because that’s how I want to be treated. If something isn’t going to work, or if I have reservations about a project, I ALWAYS let our clients know up front.”
