Dream Car Restorations did a complete frame off restoration of my 1969 Camaro and created a MASTER PIECE!
My car was in need of a complete restoration, floors, trunk, quarters, basically you name it , it needed it! EVERYTHING on my car was disassembled and either replaced or redone. Their work was second to none!
Mark at Dream car is an expert when it comes to the restoration process and knows exactly what to do and how to do it. The precision reassembly of the car was incredible. The wiring and detail work of everything on the camaro is like a piece of art and the paint on the car is nothing short of a master piece! EVERYONE that sees the car can't believe how incredible the paint is.
Of course after you completely disassemble a car and put it back together there are going to be little, and I do mean little things that are going to need to be adjusted and Dream Car Restorations immediately corrected everything at the blink of an eye as they were even more concerned that EVERYTHING was perfect than me!
Bottom line is that if you want a car restored right, go to Dream Car Restorations. If you want a half a$$ job, go some place else and then when you're not happy, take it to Dream Car Restorations and pay again to have it done the right way. So you may as well start with the pros at Dream Car Restorations and get it done right the first time.
If it sounds like I'm pro Dream Car Restorations, I am! I had a dream of a 69 Camaro and Dream Car Restorations brought my dream to life!
Interesting claim

I find this interesting since this Customer had to pay to have his so called Master Piece shipped back to the AZ from Hawaii just to have the car repaired since no one could fix it there. The paint was a mess, & the car sits to low to the ground so the underside is trashed. "Little things can cost a lot." I have seen this car first hand! It is a very nice 69 Camero but, Mark at Dream Car Restoration bragged about how much he charged the guy for a so so job. I gues some Customers have lower expectations than others. JA

I took my classic street rod in to have a Vintage Air conditioner installed and a serpentine belt system installed also two new power window units.4 months later I picked up my car for "five" times the estimated amount. I recently took my car to another garage and found out two electric fans and an electric fuel pump were all wired to the same circuit. If I blew the fuse the whole car was dead on the road. Wires under the dash were cut and left hanging, also a wire was run through the firewall through a bare drilled hole(no grommet no protection) how professional is that!!! The work looks good on the surface but under the glitter it looks like something you would get from TJ Mexico. Don't be fooled by there claims of professional family work, they are ripoff artists.

I looked around the valley quite a bit and decided to use Dream Car Restorations because of their workmanship. Their body and paint is top-quality. They did a collision repair and partial restoration for me and it looks beautiful. My experience with them was great. They were informative through out the whole process, kept me up to date and worked with me quite a bit.

Dream Car Restorations would like to respond to the Anonymous Posters on this site. We have always stood behind our work. If a customer does not bring a problem to our attention then we are not able to fix the situation. We realize sometimes there is human error and product failure. If this happens, we have, and will, fix the problem if we are told about it. I have been in the automotive restoration business for 35 years and my family has been in the business since 1929. We are not a here today gone tomorrow Shop. We aim to give the best service possible for a fair price. It upsets me that people will not speak to me directly about an issue but have no problem talking behind my back. We have thousands of satisfied customers and hope you will be one too. We have several customers who have agreed to take their own time to speak to any serious potential customers and share their experience with Dream Car Restorations. Mark Sr.

I've seen the work these guys put out and I've got to say STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHOP!!! I visited their shop and I saw some of their welds on a car that they had in there and it just about made me sick. It was an Alston 4 link set up on a 2nd gen Camaro or Firebird that they had installed that looked all boogered up and just down right dangerous. I wouldn't ever take my car to these guys. They look like total HACKS! Also, I have a couple of friends who know these guys one of which used to work there and the other has his own shop. My friend with the shop said to me when I asked him if he has heard of them was "oh yea, those guys are dicks". The other guy that worked there said they yell and cuss at their employees and treat them like trash. Stay away from Dream Car Restorations.
