Palm Beach Customs’ Classic Car Restoration Shop in Florida

…We Do What We Love


Restoring classic cars is how we started at Palm Beach Customs way back in the day. John Russo has been working on classic cars since he was 14 years old – starting with the Tri-5 Chevys and now we do our classic car restorations in Florida (there’s no snow here – we love it!)
