Motorheads Performance specializes in cars and trucks from the 1920's through 1970's.  Performance upgrades, engine restorations, engine swaps, repairs and partial to full restoration services.  We can recreate bone-stock vehicles (how cars looked and ran when they left the factory) utilizing NOS (new old stock) parts or hunt down original parts.  We also use high-quality after-market products from top-name manufacturers (see our products page for partial listing) for those wanting late-model drivetrains, suspensions, A/C etc. Motorheads accepts street rods, muscle cars, classic cars, hot rods, antiques, classic trucks and custom cars and trucks.  We perform work on Mopars, GM, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, GMC, Plymouth, Pontiac, AMC, Buick, Olds and other manufacturers of the 1920's to 1970's. 

Muscle Cars include popular makes and models from 1964 to 1972 (the muscle car era),  such as AMX, Dart, Nova, Nova Super Sport, Chevelle, Chevelle SS, Impala, Cuda, Impala SS, Corvette, Sting Ray, Corvair, Monte Carlo, Charger, Hemi-Charger, Charger R/T, Cobra, GTX, Hemi Cuda, Shelby Cobra, Challenger, Coronet, GTO, Mustang, Mustang Fastback, Shelby Mustang, Mustang 2+2, Mustang Mach I, Rouche Mustang, Boss Mustang, Fairlane 427, Torino Cobra, Cyclone GT, Camaro, Camaro SS, Cuda, Trans Am, Firebird, Formula Firebird, Scrambler, Barracuda, Cougar, Cyclone Spoiler, AMC Javelin, Olds 442, Hurst Olds, Super Bee, Superbird, Duster, TransAm, Biscayne, Satellite and Road Runner.  

Classic Cars include cars of the 1950's to 1970's such as the Bel Air, Chevy Two-Ten, One-Fifty, Nomad, Corvette, Stingray, Malibu, Thunderbird, Fairlane, Crown Vic, Ranchero, Lincoln, Continental, Sunliner, DeSoto, Custom Royal, V-8 Royal Lancer, Imperial, Studebaker, Belvedere, Olds Ninety-Eight, Biscayne, Rocket, Delta, Buick Wildcat, LaSalle, Falcon, Nash, Hudson, Chrysler New Yorker, Customline Tudor, Crestline, Royal 500, Coronet, Custom Imperial, Packard, Willys, Sedan Delivery, Mercury Monterey, Montclair, Phaeton, Capri, Crestline, Customline, Kaiser, Star Chief, Catalina, Century, Roadmaster, Riviera, Roadmaster, Windsor, Fireflite Coronado, Victoria, Plymouth Fury, El Camino, Galaxie, Chevy II and other collectable cars and trucks of this era.

The terms Hot Rods and Street Rods can refer to cars of any of these eras (although there are certainly favorites among rodders), and the terms are often interchanged and confused.  Both tend to refer to vehicles which have been kept at or close to factory specs, with original engines, interiors and body. Some define Hot Rod as a beefed up vehicle built for high performance and probably sees at least occasional street or strip racing, whereas a Street Rod is a somewhat beefed up ride which is still very street legal and probably more favored for long pleasure rides, rod runs and cruises. While Hot Rods and Street Rods tend to use original drivetrains (or swap for small blocks or big blocks of the time if the original motor is tired), performance manifolds, tunnel rams, blowers, superchargers, cams, lifters, rods, breathers, fuel lines, suspensions, brakes, intake and exhaust systems are often added and/or upgraded to increase power and performance.   Custom vehicles have been quite altered from original factory specs, often exchanging original engines for later model power, modernized interiors that look little like the originals, and restyled bodies and trim.

Motorheads Performance has become known as nostalgia and traditionalist builders with "a pinch of high tech", preferring to keep stock vehicles as close to original as possible while giving customers the comforts and conveniences which will enhance their driving experience and allow them to get out and hit the roads in style!
