San Diego Classic Cars

We love everything about older cars, from their unique specifications to the way you feel driving them. A classic car is a machine that not only transports you to your destination but to another time. Remember toggling the radio dials and experiencing the novelty of air conditioning as you cruised down the highway?

Remember turning heads as people gazed at those vintage paint colors, like cherry red and electric blue? If that cherry red auto paint is looking more like rusty mauve, it's time to give that car a makeover.

Unfortunately, due to basic wear and tear, time and even the weather can deteriorate the original paint and finishes. Our professional team is highly knowledgeable and experienced in classic car mechanical restorations, updates and resto-modding and knows how to use careful precision to handle both the cosmetic repairs and part replacements. Performing a good car remodel is a practice that requires the utmost attention to detail to preserve a car's unique qualities, so that it looks the same way it did when it was manufactured.

Frame-Off Restorations vs. Body-On Restorations

In a "frame-off restoration" or a "ground-up restoration" the entire body of the car is stripped down to its bare bones, leaving only the frame. Every panel, part and paint is removed and redone, replaced or refinished. This is the ultimate spa package for your car and ensures every piece is up to excellent standards with its original (or improved) interior and exterior functions.

Body-On Restorations are less intensive and are often recommended if the vehicle has been kept in great condition and needs minor cosmetic detailing. The body of the car is kept one the frame so it can be repainted and, if needed, special parts are ordered and swapped out.
