Revving Up the Classics: The Art of Restomodding

The timeless allure of classic cars captures the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere, but their performance often reflects a bygone era. That's where the art of restomodding shines, seamlessly blending vintage aesthetics with modern performance. At, we specialize in transforming these classic beauties into roaring beasts of today. Let's dive into the world of restomodding and explore how we're keeping history on the fast track.

What is Restomodding?

Restomodding, a portmanteau of "restoration" and "modifying," involves restoring old vehicles while upgrading their performance and comfort with modern technology. Unlike pure restorations that aim to return a car to its original condition, restomods focus on enhancement and personalization.

The Benefits of Modern Performance in a Classic Package

Restomodding offers the best of both worlds: the undeniable charm of a classic car with the reliability, speed, and comfort of a modern vehicle. Upgrades can include engine swaps, transmission upgrades, modern suspensions, and even the integration of digital interfaces within the cabin.

Key Considerations When Planning a Restomod Project

Before diving into restomodding, consider the following:

  • End Goal: Define what you want from your restomod. Is it daily drivability, improved performance, or show-stopping looks?

  • Budget: Be realistic about costs. Quality restomods aren't cheap, but they're an investment in automotive art.

  • Base Vehicle: Choose a vehicle that's worth the investment and has the potential to accommodate the upgrades you're envisioning.
