Due to the COVID 19 Virus, the May 2021 Open House Is Delayed. Stay tuned form more information as restrictions on gatherings change.

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver all services needed to restore or build a vehicle to your specifications.

Why Choose Us

Honesty and integrity

All of our jobs are highly documented with purchase orders, time cards, and a brief description of the work performed during that time period. A copy of the current invoice is available to the customer at any given time during your vehicles stay with us.

Award winning quality.

Our ’32 Dearborne Roadster won best in class, outstanding paint, and outstanding undercarriage at the 2013 Grand National Roadster show. Our Cadillac Woody Wagon won best overall at the Woody’s on the Warf 2013 in Santa Cruz, and our ’69 Dodge Power Wagon won cool commercial at the Goodguys Pleasanton Show in 2014.

Clean and well equipped

We want you to feel comfortable leaving your vehicle with us. Each job is given a dedicated stall during the build process and all parts for that job are stored upstairs with each job given its own organized storage area. This assures no parts will be mixed with others or come up missing.

Skilled Technicians.

Every one of our techs has many years in the hot rod and restoration business. Every one of us is a hot rodder at heart and we take pride in the work we do. We know you are only as good as your last build so we push a little harder each time to be better than the last. In the past we have been very fortunate to have the customers that allow us to build their dreams, but allow us to give them input along the way.

Having control of your project.

We prefer that you decide in advance the budget of what you want to spend to achieve your goal. We will advise you of what we can do for that amount. There is no sense starting a project if you cannot finish it financially. By meeting with the actual people that will be working on your car they can also give their input of what can work or won’t work for the project. Proper budgeting is the key!

We’ll help you design the interior of your dreams

Dash modification, air conditioning vent and control location, and custom made center console are just some of the items we performed on our ’67 Pro Touring Nova. We will work closely with you and your upholstery shop to help you achieve your goal. If you don’t have an upholstery shop in mind we can recommend several shops in the area to fit any budget.

What Our Clients Are Saying?

Gary’s Rods & Restorations accomplish two different modifications on my car. One was a complete new electrical wiring job and the other included a mechanical modification of the engine, clutch linkage update and paint chip repairs. From my perspective, Gary’s shop is knowledgeable, efficient and very customer oriented. Job satisfaction and job completion in a timely manner is of the upmost concern for them. Gary and crew are very friendly and easy to work with. Their work detail is top tier.

I just wanted to take the time to formally thank you for inviting my father and I to your open house. Aside from having the opportunity to see some truly beautiful and amazing cars and  spend time with family, we enjoyed the wonderful food. There is nothing better than visiting with old friends who I have known for almost 20 years and making some new ones talking shop for several hours about old cars. It simply does not get much better and I had a GREAT time thanks to your hospitality. I would also like to thank you for the excellent job you did on my 1970 Firebird Formula. Aside from doing a great job on the repair and completing it quickly, it was the best shop experience in the 30+ years I have been playing with old cars. We hope you, the entire shop and your family have a great Christmas and Holiday season this year and a very happy and prosperous 2014.
