We’ve Moved! We are proud to announce that we have moved in to our new location at 5550 Oldcastle Rd. S. in Oldcastle. It’s just West of our old location off Hwy #3. We are under construction but have made a huge upgrade by doubling the size of our building. We are looking forward to a great 2014 with more room for more projects and an upgraded facility to produce a better product. Come and visit us when you can. Open house to come in the spring.

Our first Autorama in Detroit was a huge success! We had four cars on display and three of them took home some hardware. Congratulations to Sean Donaghey for placing 2nd in his class for his 2007 Ford Mustang GT and to Tom Donelly for placing 4th in the same class for his 2005 Ford Mustang GT. Congratulations also go out to Frank Stancati for winning the Tuner class with his 1990 Nissan 300ZX and to Cory Hussey for placing 2nd in his class for his custom Colorado. Congratulations to our friends at Drag U Down Customs in Tilbury for winning awards with the vehicles that they had on display as well. Looking forward to next year!

We all had our fingers crossed that the rain and wind would kindly pass us by. We wore our sweaters to the lot and by about 10am we had bright sunny skies and the cars, trucks and motorcycles were rolling in. Thank you very much to all of the volunteers, coordinators, participants, vendors, sponsors and donors that helped to make this day a huge success! Thank you to the spectators who came to enjoy this day with us. Thank you to the brave souls who participated in the stock car tire change competition and congratulations to Jay Arnold, our winner. Thank you to Windsor Chrysler, Thunder Road Harley Davidson, Abrams Towing, Lant Insurance, Rock Auto, Kal Tire, The Fox Company, Groovy Smoothies, the Windsor Area Street Rods and our family and friends who came out to lend a hand. See you all next year!
