MetalWorks Pro Touring 1955 Chevy build

Tri-five Chevys are a corner stone in the world of classic cars, and most enthusiasts have found themselves drooling over one at some point. Now, we could argue until we are blue in the face about which of the 3 years has the best lines…but when it came to Shaun Schroeder’s first classic car…he knew he wanted a 55. With…

MetalWorks built Pro Touring 1968 Pontiac GTO

The beauty you see gracing these pages was built by MetalWorks as our personal “shop car”…not a bad shop vehicle huh?
