Balance between the old school look and technology
Restomod (restoration + modern parts/technology)
A restomod car has the timeless appearance of the original, but the outdated guts of the car have been replaced with the more modern, high-performance parts of today.

True Performance with a Twist
At Drive Auto Collision we dedicate ourselves to elevating and bringing out the best your car can be by combining both old school looks and new car technology.
Our process involves the repair or replace of the visible parts (e.g., body trim, interior, etc.), and adding new parts not easily seen (e.g., electrical, suspension, brakes, etc.). The result is a beautifully restored automobile outside that approximates factory-new condition, but new internals and all the creature convince you want and need.
Don’t just take our word for it

Service was on time. Staff and owner very kind, helpful, respectful and professional. My car looked BRAND NEW and drives like a dream after having the entire front passenger side crushed in! Worked diligently with my insurance and kept me up to date. Didn’t mind any questions or drop-bys while working on my car. And they were able to help with my deductible. I will definitely be coming back for any future auto repairs necessary. Thanks so much, guys!
I had an accident and my suspension was completely wrecked. Cracked the wheel as well and had damage to the body. I couldn’t believe how amazing the repairs were just picked up the car I have a 2014 BMW 535i and put it through it’s paces on the loop. It ran beautifully. These guys definitely know their way around European cars. Looks like a small shop but quality and customer service is amazing. Wouldn’t take my car for repairs anywhere else after this experience.
