Hardcore Hot Rods has extensive experience in the Northern Virginia area, and has extensively expanded our facilities and resources over the years. Starting in 1993, our experience has carried over into the work that our mechanics perform on a daily basis, and all of us remain just as passionate about working on these beautiful classic car restoration projects today as we did when we first opened shop.

Please note that our sister shop thespeedwaygarage has been absorbed into our larger facility at Hardcore Hot Rods in an effort to offer customers an even greater classic car shop experience.

Our team of classic car mechanics and technicians have been picked over the years to ensure that our company gains and retains the most experienced personnel possible. We often hear from our customers that previous shops they’ve used employ basic automotive technicians, which lack the core and fundamental knowledge required to work on classic and vintage cars.

Obviously, there are many things that set regular mechanics apart from classic car mechanics and restoration specialists. For example, most modern-day mechanics may go their entire careers without having to actually open up or rebuild an engine. At Hardcore Hotrods we understand that doing so is simply a reality of working on older vehicles. Many of our customers ask us to freshen up, replace, rebuild, or boost the performance of their vehicles’ engines, which almost always involves at least a partial teardown and/or removal from the vehicle. This same type of capability also applies to transmissions, suspension components, differentials, and more.
