My 1967 Pontiac Firebird turned out way above my expectations. The first show I took it to someone wanted to buy it at any price!

Nor-Cal Rods & Rides Is a great place to do business.
They completed my dream in 2015. A complete restoration on my 1927 Model T Coupe. There attention to detail is amazing.
I am not a mechanic, but i had a vision of how i wanted my car to look. Jeff advised me what was needed to make my vehicle safe as well as good looking. I added a few things along the way, like air conditioning and a bench seat. Without missing a beat the great crew at Nor-Cal Rods accomplished this doing an outstanding job. Everyone at Nor-Cal Rods took a personal interest in building my outstanding Hot Rod. Jeff and the team are fair, honest, and qualified with a proven track record. I highly recommend Nor-Cal rods to anyone with a classic car. You will not be disappointed.
