Armistice Day, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918 is the day many countries recognize the sacrifice of the fallen through the Great War and all wars. In the UK and Europe people wear poppies as recognition of the war as it was the first flower to grow and cover the battlefields after the war ended. Veterans Day, as it is referred to in the USA, equally commemorate the American soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice during the Great War 1914 ~ 1918 between the Allied forces and Germany. For those who fell in battle this day is a time to reflect and a time to heal. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

On this beautiful Tuesday morning, here at HPR we have two very special vehicles in for service. A gorgeous Ducati 1299 Panigale in for a fresh set of performance tires and a 2015 Chevy SS Sedan all the way from San Antonio in for a Holden badge swap, a Whipple supercharger and a tune for max performance. Here at HPR, our clients’ vehicles mean a lot to them, but to us they’ll always be one of a kind.

Another amazing start to our work week and month with a pre ‘60 VW flat-4 tear down for a special client this Monday morning. Before each start of the month, we evaluate every work order and assort our time efficiently to each task so the challenging jobs have more time allotted to get it done right. A true VW master can have these engines disassembled in about an hour and a half so naturally first thing Monday morning is when we would get it done.

When in the market for a vehicle, it’s common to find similar available options in different price ranges due to mileage, popularity and rarity. One of the key factors considered in valuations is Provenance or “the fame factor”. This 2009 Harley Davidson Tri-Glide Ultra Classic featuring the 103ci v-twin is an example of such an extreme. When a previous owner is Chuck Norris (verification in title) the value is much higher than that of a normal trike of similar physical conditions. Offered for sale here at Houston Performance and Restoration, for $29,950 she is ready to be rode home straight to your garage or driveway. Details on this beautiful ride provided upon request. Have a wonderful weekend from the team here at HPR.

The HPR team is very happy to announce the arrival of our newest member, a 2 year old English Bulldog named Winston (Churchill). He was 'rescued' by us and has made himself very much at home in no time at all. He is our official mascot and wins a gold medal for snoring. When not asleep he is great for the morale of our team members and especially loves meeting our clients. When you visit HPR, be sure to say hello to him. Having Winston here is a blessing that conveys our business and our values. Soon he will be rocking his HPR clothing and keep an eye out for his developing story.

Here at HPR, old school doesn’t mean dilapidated or antiquated. We like to think of each vehicle that rolls through our shop, classic or modern, as extensions of their owner’s personalities and experiences. Jay McMickle who is the proud owner of this well presented 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 (clone) takes great care of his ride and chose the HPR team to do the same. Here at HPR we take the best care of all our customers rides including this beautiful 442. The Cutlass is in the shop for a list of work but primarily a conversion from a column shift to a floor mounted shifter and our client will be back at the shows in good time. #oldsmobile #cutlass442 #showcar #prideandjoy #classiccars #convertible #houston #performance #restoration #FloorShift

The Berg 5 repair / refresh is well under way and waiting for a couple of parts before being put back together. To those that don't know, this is a conversion from the 4 speed transaxle to a 5 speed on an aircooled Volkswagen. This conversion allows better acceleration and cruising speed. New selector forks still need to be fitted and adjusted and the gears need to be checked for lash to get Jason Terwilliger down the street. If you need your aircooled or watercooled Volkswagen repaired, tuned, restored or serviced then HPR is here to give you the best service in town.

Another hectic Wednesday at HPR, this stunning, freshly painted ‘74 VW Karmann Ghia and a ‘65 T34 Razor Edge VW Karmann Ghia. The ‘74 is in the shop for a full interior fitment along with windows and a full rewiring job and the Razor is in for brakes which we are currently searching worldwide for. This coach built Razor is not only rare due to the total numbers built but also because they were not officially imported to the USA. These beautiful Volkswagens feel right at home with the rest of the amazing vehicles here at HPR.

Here at HPR, our team takes pride in assisting all of our clients with exactly what they want. This well presented 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 featuring a 350hp 400ci V8 engine is in the shop for some minor maintenance including an alignment, window adjustments and an overall inspection for proper operation. Naturally with moving vehicles around the shop, this mean green machine found a new friend to share the morning sun with. Choosing HPR for your classic and performance needs means getting the right work done the first time around.

Today’s blast from the past, a 1938 Buick Model 47 with the infamous 320 c.i. Dynaflash straight 8-cylinder engine making 120hp. After the stock market crash of 1929, Buick was looking for a way to bounce back and get the public’s attention. They did so by refreshing their entire lineup and slowly moved from offering 25 different bodies down to 7. What makes this particular Buick so special is the fact that it is the last year of production where Buick still had wood as a second major component to the mostly steel body. Obviously the ostrich leather interior was not offered in ‘38 but it complements the vehicles persona very well.

Our client has entrusted the HPR team to resurrect this beautiful saloon back to its former glory with a full and detailed restoration and we are so humbled to have this amazing opportunity. Best wishes from the HPR team.

A 1973 Land Rover 88 Series 3 and a 2022 Land Rover Defender 90 soaking up the sun on our front lawn today. Both vehicles are the short wheelbase, 2-door version. The ‘73 had been through our shop needing the fuel system looked over and the owner of the ‘22 is part of the HPR team. With both vehicles being here at the same time, naturally the parking lot was overloaded and the decision was to park them off road.

Over 50 years of innovation and engineering make this duo just that much more special to us.

Our newest featured vehicle feels right at home in Houston’s rainy weather today. Coming all the way from Puget sound in Washington state, this well patina’d 1965 Ford Mustang is getting all the love from the Lone Star State here at HPR. In the shop for wiring, suspension, OEM factory air installation and an exhaust upgrade; we plan to have this daily driver back in the hands of our client’s wife in no time. Stay safe and stay dry from all of us at HPR.

After a mishap in our clients home garage, this immaculate 1974 Dodge Charger has arrived here at HPR for electrical work to get her back on the road. Wiring and the flow of electricity is not only a science but a skill that requires years of experience. Here at HPR we have the skill and the knowledge to get this repair carried out in a timely manner so that our client can once again visit shows and take drives out on a Sunday. If you have electrical issues with your pride and joy then reach out to us for a positively electrifying experience. Happy Thursday to you all and best wishes from all at HPR.

After carefully dismantling a Java green 1965 VW Beetle, the floor pan is now fully restored. You can see that the pan is now 100% back to factory specification and ready for assembly. At HPR we do the best job for every customer and as an example, rather than blasting, we had the pan chemically dipped to remove all containment’s both inside and outside. Before dipping we fitted high quality, heavy gauge steel pans that were correctly welded in. The entire pan was then painted the correct satin black. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Bring your project to us today weather it be a foreign vehicle or a domestic vehicle and you too can experience the best work possible.

After spending some time in the Garden State, this 1985 Lincoln Continental Valentino Edition has found its new home here in Texas. With only 70,000 original miles, this weekend driver is still a gorgeous example of what the American automobile is all about. Our client brought his baby to the shop for a professional paint correction and a number of services to keep this beauty rolling smooth as a Lincoln should!

Danke to HPR for inviting me out to their first car show. We expected it to be rained out but it was just slight overcast which made for great car show weather. This was a VW/Porsche gathering and was a great time. Danke Schoen for having me out HPR! Houston Performance and Restoration
