The V8 Speed & Resto Shop is a full-service Classic and Muscle Car restoration center. It all began in 2005 as a small shop on private property which served as the shop and production studio for the V8TV television show, which aired nationally on various cable / satellite TV systems. At that time, the small crew built one car at a time as content for the TV show. Soon, people watching V8TV began to call and ask how the V8 crew could build their dream car, and things took off from there!
Today, the V8 Speed & Resto Shop is fully staffed with 15 talented people ranging from technicians, fabricators, body & paint techs, plus the administrative and video production crew. V8TV airs on the TUFF-TV and REV'n TV networks, and the video crew is continuously producing V8TV web episodes along with our latest show, Muscle Car of the Week.

Our customers come from around the world to have the V8 Speed and Resto Shop build their dream cars thanks to our talented crew and quality work, and also because we document each restoration with thousands of photographs. We send long-distance customers these photos so they may follow their car from start to finish from their desktop or mobile phone. Customers are reassured of quality, as all of the detail work is available in photos for the world to see. Some even become the features of V8TV videos!
