In The Beginning...


In the beginning it was just an interest and a passion to fix up one vehicle then after outside major interest grew into the business it is today!

Starting out as the first repairing Steven's own vehicle. Then he opened Retired War Horses and transitioned to a full service and body shop, along with vehicles for sale over time. In the late 2012's customizing was added for body work including custom paint. Creating and customizing to the newest trends or restoring to the vehicles to their past original, condition and has put us on the map as one of the most unique and respected business's around!
