JP Cadoux, the owner and operator, has been restoring and building cars professionally since 1979. He began his career with the famous BMW 2002 sports car which he still tunes to this day.

Since his career began, he has built hundreds of motors and cars from all descents, not just the european cars he started with.

In his 30 year career he has always had a foot in the world of performance motorsports. In the 80's he rode raced motor cycles professionally for 7 years around the country in the AFM & AMA series.

Even today he is racing high-speed go-karts in a professional class holding many titles.

It was only natural that he decided to start his own shop in 1996 so he could focus on custom performance tuning as well as cater to all automotive needs.

The gallery displays only some of the custom work that JP has handled personally.
