Hot Rod Shop

Carl’s Hot Rod Shop is a direct reflection of the passion and artwork of its owner, Carl, who has been building hot rods since he was only eight years old. The build team recognizes that each project is very unique, and they strive for perfection in every detail from the frame up.

Whether you’re looking to build a classic hot rod, a rat rod, a custom build, or an accurate restoration of an antique, Carl and his team have the experience to meet, or even exceed, your expectations.

Our first priority is always quality. So unlike typical auto repair, a build of this nature can easily take months to complete. However, we will do our best to work with your budget and expectations to create a realistic timeframe that you’re pleased with.

One of Carl’s Hot Rod Shop’s most recent completed projects is a 1955 Buick Special, which won a top 10 award at the 2010 Buick Nationals. Restored for the new HDTV series “Reality Rides,” the car is a gorgeous example of the work Carl and his team are capable of. You can view pictures of the car on this website on the “Project Cars” page.
