Want to know the REAL deal about ARD speak to ANYONE in the H-town camaro club and you'll get the truth. ARD has done around 10 1000+hp cars for our club alone and fixed countless other cars that came to them fubar'd by other local shops. Anything from simple bolt ons to big motor LSX/superchargers/turbo's/nitrous, custom fabbed tanks and welded in roll bars. Primarily Chevy and Dodge. I personally have a 1500hp LSX twin turbo plus nitrous 2010 Camaro that Owen Priest is directly responsible for and I couldn't be happier. He's very active with the club both socially and professionally and after having dealt with 2 other high profile local shops before finally finding ARD I can honestly tell you that ARD is the only shop I'll use from now on.
I purchased a 56 TBird that they were restoring. They worked with me to restore it to my specs. It is now a show car. They helped me to find and purchase a 66 Mustang which they are currently updating to my standards. They are good at thinking outside the box to meet customers requests. Ken and the entire staff are honest, friendly and patient. They love what they do and it shows in the final product. I would recommend Houston Auto Collectors Garage to anyone.
I searched for a long time to find a restoration shop that is highly knowledgable, does excellent work on a wide variety of classic cars, and treats their customers with respect. I live in CA and shipped two cars ('60 Corvette and '57 Thunderbird) to Auto Collectors for full restorations. The results are rolling works of art. Thanks to Ken and company! CVT
