Like the cars, trucks, boats and engines we build!

KNOWLEDGE IS HORSEPOWER! We have the knowledge, expertise & skill to get YOU the power & performance you're looking for!

Since 1979, our specialty at Bad Ass Cars has been building bad to the bone performance and race engines, and restoring, customizing, servicing & upgrading mid 70's and earlier American cars, trucks, boats, and hot rods. From bone stock classics, to wild street & off road vehicles, to all out race cars. Every vehicle and engine we've worked on, we made better, faster, stronger, safer, and more reliable. Every job was done right, with the highest quality and care! To see a photo gallery of some of the vehicles we've built & worked-on, click here.
