    Happy New Year and all that jazz! 2023 has started off wet and dreary with a hefty side of brr, but we’re hanging in there and enjoying when the sun peeks out.

    End of Year Updates

    We have some end of year updates! We are now entering the slower time of the year, and that means that it is COLD. Projects are taking a bit longer due to the ongoing supply chain issues across the various vendors that we use. We’re still getting customers contacting us about doing partial and full restorations, and trailer sales are still ongoing, even if a bit slower than during the summer. Mt. Hood is looking especially white and glorious with his coat of snow, shining in the sun. Everyone is on the road heading hither and yon for all sorts of winter holiday fun. Be safe when traveling, and be…

We have a wide variety of parts and accessories in our shop. Recently we added a Square online store, as well as our Etsy page, HotRodTreasures.

In the shops, our mechanics have been busy getting these vehicles in our bays worked on. Unfortunately our hot temps sure haven’t helped much. Next…

    Things Are Chugging Right Along

    We have been B-U-S-Y with restorations and repair projects, and trailer sales are still moving along as well. We’re noticing that supply chains are still a little slower than normal, but it depends on what parts and trailer sizes are on order.  Here is where we’re at on our current project vehicles: 1966 Chevrolet Impala We just started on this classic sleeping beauty! The engine was removed today after a rough start getting it into the service bay. This popular classic car will be a total frame-off restoration project. Right now we’re discussing some client decisions regarding the interior and how the client wants to go with that. The engine…

    March 22, 2022

    March 22, 2022 Update The start of 2022 came on like a rocket and we are just now able to catch up with you all! We’re going to try out a new blog feature to keep it all neat and tidy. Our service bays are overflowing with various projects, so much so that we had to get a storage facility to house the excess projects that are waiting in the wings or are waiting for parts. We brought in a new mechanic who’s a native from The Dalles and just moved back to town, which has helped relieve some of the workload from our regular mechanics.   Here is where…
