About Us

Curtis McClachlan has been under one car or another since 1965. If it wasn't his car, it was his buddy's car. Living close to Erwindale Raceway in Southern California allowed him to work on neighbors' race cars and even work with one of the top Gasser cars in the day!

After serving as a turbine engine mechanic on Huey helicopters in Viet Nam, Curtis picked up a 1963 Vette and worked it into a 425 HP 327. From there, things took their course, and now Curtis has a stable of classic keepers seen below.

We specialize in GM/LS motor conversions for your mid 60s to mid 80s Rolls Royce. Ride with horsepower and style!

When Curtis is not under a car, he builds and remodels custom Lake Tahoe homes.
