I had Creative Rods & Restoration install floor pans in my 1983 Mustang GT. They were professional and gave me pictures of the progress. I am pleased with the quality of their work. You can tell they take pride in their work. Thank you

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Creative Rods & Restoration for their exceptional dedication and commitment to their craft. As a client who had the pleasure of working closely with Vince Schmidt, I can attest to their unparalleled expertise and unwavering passion for car restoration. 

What truly set them apart is their willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate my needs and preferences. They consistently communicated with transparency and professionalism.

Very positive experience because they often updated me on the progress of the 55 Chevy. Very professional, skilled, friendly. I would trust them to do any car that I have. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks to Vince, Travis, and all of their employees. You’re the BEST!

They do show-quality work. Their rates are a little pricey, but the work is meticulously done and they will work with you to minimize expense whenever possible. They were also very helpful in tracking down parts and finding suppliers of other services such as chrome plating and weatherstripping.

Hey Vince, Quick thanks to you and your crew for the fast turnaround last week. Kim took the long way home Saturday and we got her out again Sunday, and Kim says the car never felt better, and so far the new garage floor is still free of any drips. Kudos to your mechanics.

- Joe K.

Best experience you can have. Extremely professional at all times. Their ability to remain good stewards of your money is impeccable. The quality of the work is above all expectations. I love my Scout II and best of all I have the insurance it was done right. Thank you to all the guys at Creative Rods for an amazing experience. Ill see you again when I find my next toy.

I took my 1967 Mustang over to Creative Rods to have an electric steering column put in. They did a great job, and while completing that task, they jumped on a few oil leaks also. When I picked the car up, the owner, and the mechanic that did the service talked to me like I was an old friend. We talked about other projects that could raise the value of the car, and they also told me things I could do myself, to save money. They did not try to sell me on things, they just listened to what I wanted to do, and even on a few ideas, they talked me out of them, as the cost benefit was not there. In my past career of over 25 years, I did a job that I had to read people daily, and these folks are good people. I recommend them for anyone that wants a good product in the end. I will also say that at first, they may seem a little high on price, but I will tell you that my normal mechanic did not even know how to complete the task. In the end, do you save money paying a regular attorney $200 per hour, for them to spend 20 hours researching your issue, or an employment attorney $500 per hour, and they can address the matter within an hour. This is what this company does, they are experts in the field, and they complete the job faster, because they have done it multiple times before.

Vince, Travis, and their team is first class. The job they did on my bronco was better than I could have hoped for. Their level of detail, responsiveness, and work rate is what makes them special. Lastly, i trust them and they treated my bronco like they would their own. Hands down would/will use them again.

CR did a great retro mod on my 61 vette. Their attention to detail was fantastic, access to see my car weekly, and their ability to work around parts shortages and back orders. Vince, Travis, and Rusty-thanks for making my car a “head turner”! I highly recommend CR, you won’t be disappointed!

Creative Rods did an exceptional job on my 1965 Chevrolet C-10. They will be working on my 1967 Eleanor Mustang in the near future and I am excited to continue working with Creative Rods.

Vince and Travis and the whole gang at Creative Rods just finished my 59 Apache truck and the work they did was phenomenal. There craftsmanship is the best I have seen in the classic car industry. They also delivered great customer service and kept me informed through the whole project. I will recommend them to everyone I know and I will for sure be using them again. Thanks guys.

- Mike H.

Vince and the crew did an awesome job on my Chevelle SS. Don't hesitate a minute to do business with these guys. Thanks guys for the great work!!!

Sent my 1969 Sportsroof Mustang in for a partial restoration and am very happy with the results. I was given regular updates on the progress along with photos and ended up getting the car back in a few short weeks. Shops of this caliber are rare and I’ll use their services again in the future. I’d recommend anyone looking for quality restoration work to give this shop a call.

Vince and the guys previously did some work on my Corvette that I was very satisfied with. So, I let them do my engine swap to a 383 stroker crate engine with 450 H.P. in my 1980 Corvette. Needless to say, if you're gonna let someone do that kind of surgery on your baby, you'd better damn well trust them and in this case, they earned even more of my trust. If you want it done right, then there ya go!"

I was introduced to Creative Rods & Restoration through my motor builder. I wasn't satisfied with another shop so moved my project to Creative Rods & Restoration after the first meeting with Vince and Travis. It was the best decision for my project! Vince and Travis not only delivered world class service and craftsmanship, but they were also extremely easy to work with. They communicated throughout the build so I always knew what to expect. The completed project is amazing and I'm beyond satisfied with my overall experience. Creative Rods understands the "customer experience" aspect of business and over delivers in so many ways. As a bonus, the K5 was recently recognized by Good Guys as the top Chevy truck at their Nashville, TN show. It wasn't built to win shows but the quality, fit and finish speaks for itself. Five star rating!
