I’ve turned a wrench since I was a kid. Lawnmowers, chainsaws, or any of the junk cars in the yard were no match for my willingness to tear it down and see how it worked. Most days I even got them back together and working as they should.
62 Ford pickup, 64 Wildcat, 65 Fury, 67 Continental. These were the cars I cut my teeth driving and building as a teenager. I lived and breathed valve adjustments, setting points, checking vacuum advance or swapping heads – all from the comfort of the driveway. I later got into imports, big turbos, crazy boost, and computer tuning. Before long I was building professional drift cars, in the woods rescuing rally cars, designing cars for the Texas Mile, or racing point to point.
At the end of the day, I like all things car-related. The Shadetree Speed Shop is how I stay in touch with that passion.
What I do
I like anything above and beyond stock. Tuners, drifters, street racers, time attack, stanced, hot rods, off-road, lifted trucks, low riders, gasoline or diesel. If you want something built, I am game!
