No job is too big or too small for us to tackle. Studio Hotrods is a one-stop-shop with all your vintage service needs. If your car has been sitting in storage for 30 years, we can go through the fuel systems, braking systems and all safety and reliability issues to get your car road ready. If you need a new set of tires and rims, want to change your old drum brakes to new power discs, set up a new exhaust system, replace a motor (such as an LS swap), or just make the driveline in your car optimized for performance – we’ve got you covered. We can take your old stock 1966 Mustang with a six cylinder and make it a fire breathing Coyote with 3 inch stainless exhaust that will light the tires up from here to Kalamazoo! We also offer standard tuning, dyno-tuning, suspension modifications and re-wiring services. If you have purchased the car of your dreams but it has turned into a nightmare, let us do an evaluation and get you on the road again. Safety inspections and consulting are all part of the vintage services we offer. Let Studio Hotrods be the trusted, knowledgeable resource you are looking for to enjoy the dream ride of your life.

Looking to find out how much your classic car is really worth? Get a professional appraisal from the experts at Studio Hotrods. Our team will assess the condition of your car, research current market data, put together comparable vehicles that are currently for sale, and provide you with an honest and accurate estimate of your vehicles worth. Any American car with a V8 engine produced between 1930 and 1972, or American muscle cars with a V8 engine produced from 1973 to present qualify for our appraisal service.
Studio Hotrods is here for all your vehicle storage needs. We have strict policies in place in order to keep your prized possession safe for the season by limiting access once the vehicle has arrived and battery tenders / vehicle covers are put in place.

Studio Hotrods is always on the lookout for vintage cars and trucks. If you have one to sell, there are two ways we can help – Cash Purchase or Consignment. If your vehicle is in great condition or if it needs a little TLC such as a small repair, interior redone or a new transmission - we are the experts in vintage repair and restoration and may be the place to buy your vehicle. We purchase cars every day of the week - Monday through Friday, however, we are not interested in rust buckets, vehicles in need of complete restoration, or ones with salvage titles. If you would rather sell the vehicle yourself, let Studio Hotrods handle the marketing, photography and negotiating by taking advantage of our great Consignment program. We only get paid when you get paid.
