Shop Visit: Jason Wenig of The Creative Workshop
Call it insane or fitting, but this 10,000-square-foot barn facility was built in 1934 from old-growth pine. The exposed wood beams frame the inside, and the wood floors show the scars and stories of decades and hundreds of cars. A genuine Goodies dream!!
Oh, the stories this place could tell. From Brass Era to muscle car, Ferrari to Ford, three cylinders to 12, this place has seen it all.
How many times has it witnessed a 4 a.m. finish before the transport truck for Pebble Beach or Amelia or Cavallino arrived? (You can hear guys exhaustedly asking, “When’s the truck coming?” as every second will count.) How many dyno parties has it hosted, with everyone searching for the meanest car around?
How many times has it heard the call go out, “Anyone smell anything burning?” (Wood building, remember?) “All clear. Jim is downstairs burning out A-arm bushings.”
I couldn’t think of a more fitting place to work on classic and vintage cars than in our vintage building, even with all of the “issues” a wood building presents when mixed with welding, superchargers and race fuel! This place is certainly unique.
And so are the cars we have seen–and the history they represent. There are times I come in and am humbled and awed by the array of cars we have the privilege to look after. Great cars, great building, great staff and great clients: What more could you ask for?
