If you own a hot rod, street rod, classic, or custom car and need any work done there is only one place to go. My name is Doug, and I just finished working with Michael at Custom Works on the build of my ’49 Ford pickup.

1949 Ford F1 Restoration

We started with a bare frame 3 weeks ago and yesterday passed the DMV inspection for  old cars, drove it on to the trailer, and brought it home. He is amazing with the quality of his work, plus his knowledge of how to put it all together.

For what he charges per hour, you can not get the quality and safety of his work, for twice the price. He gives you more for your money than anyone, anywhere.

I didn’t get any paint work done, but Jon, his partner turned out some amazing work while I was there.


So there you have it; from frame up, to a custom muffler job, in and out. Go see Michael or Jon.





If you choose to engage Michael for your restoration project, be prepared to be engaged!  When complete, your vehicle will be a unique reflection of you!  As talented and educated as he is mechanically, Michael’s greatest gift is collaboration.  He is an attentive listener and while he will provide needed feedback and suggestions, it’s your project.   In terms of integrity, accountability, innovative thought and problem solving, and customer centricity, Custom Works by Michael is second to none.

Michael has done terrific work. He has always gone the extra mile to accomplish any task that I have presented him with. His talent created what I consider a work of art. My 1927 Model T has had a three page article in Street Rodder Magazine and is a consistent winner at car shows.
