Meet Vinnie, The Owner of Muscle Cars of Texas
Muscle Cars of Texas has been a staple in the Texas classic cars restoration scene since ’00, when Vinnie expanded his existing classic Corvette business to include classic American made muscle cars of all kinds. Ever since then, the Muscle Cars of Texas team have been pushing out some of the world’s finest restorations and modifications. Vinnie has much more experience, though, than just 17 years.
Before Muscle Cars of Texas, Vinnie may have focused on Corvettes, but they aren’t what got him started. He was 16 years old, living in New York, when he completed his first restoration on a 1932 Pontiac 2 door coupe, and he’s been hooked ever since. Eventually, he moved to Texas in 1980, and opened Universial Car and Corvette, which he owned until he opened Muscle Cars of Texas.
With hundreds of completed builds under his belt, Vinnie can diagnose a problem by simply listening to it. Learning the inner workings of classic car restoration the old-fashioned way by touch and test, much of Vinnie’s training was acquired by hands-on experience.
Award Winning Restorations
When it comes to classic car restoration, you have to put your money where your mouth is. You can talk a big game all you like, but what it really comes down to is who the car sounds, looks, and runs. Vinnie and his team at Muscle Cars of Texas know how to do that, every time. Not only do their customers walk away happy, but they often win awards for their restorations, too!
On a recent episode of Fast N’ Loud, Vinnie and David, his right hand man at the shop, walked away with one of the BIGGEST classic Corvette finds in the state of Texas. They walked away with a 1978 Corvette that ended up winning them 3 Awards at the 2017 Bloomington Gold Corvette show.
