    I may have posted some of these before, not sure...over the last few years I've had the opportunities to work at a few different shops, mostly doing high-end European and Exotic cars, but some classic muscle. I do mostly mechanical and electrical repairs, but I'm fairly skilled with paintwork as well, so I did the paintwork on a handful of classic muscle restorations.

    I've worked my way up and earned a reputation for myself, and I've been lucky enough to tear apart, put together, fabricate, and beat the ever-loving shit out of some of the most expensive, most badass cars on the road.

    Enjoy.


    First, a crappy panoramic of my current shop:

    For a few months in early 2011, I worked for Jeff Pate over at Classic Cars of Houston / Sports Car Garage. Not the greatest work environment, as it was hot as fuck in the warehouses...but Jeff does amazing work on classic muscle cars, and for the short time I was there I got to work on some pretty sweet-ass cars, even though classic muscle isn't particularly my thing. I left CCOH partially because of some family issues I had to take care of, as well as hours and pay that really weren't working that great for me. Jeff is a great guy though, anyone in the area that's got any type of classic or restoration work should look him up, he's hands down THE most meticulous resto guy I've ever worked for/with.

    doesn't look like any of those were flipped over, stuck in mud or set on fire. Good job.

    Ah shit, you're right, good catch. I put the captions after I posted all the pics, and was zipping through trying to caption them, lol.


    I haven't been able to find any other pics, I know I had dozens more, but I've changed phones several times over the last year, and usually either don't back up all my photos, or forget where I backed them up to. The only photos I make extra sure and save are naked pics of skanks I've banged...those get stored in my email, lol

    Your current shop looks a lot like the one I used to work at - But my shop was built in the 1800s, and had DC lines across the ceiling. I had to hook them up everymorning. Also we had hardwood floors. They had to be waxed and sanded regularly. Fluids simply weren't spilled. At the end of the day, I was as clean as I was when I went in.
