D&P Classic Chevy “Gasser”

Those of us who grew up in the Southern California car culture were a lucky crowd. Our average week included cruising Van Nuys Boulevard, cruising Hawthorne Blvd, hanging out at the Bob’s Big Boy in Westchester, Orange County International Raceway, and cruising Redondo Beach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and all that was after school and work. In those early days we couldn’t afford to take our cars to a repair shop so we had to learn how to fix our hot rods which we broke on a regular...

Featured Car: 1968 Pontiac Firebird Convertible

The restoration of this modern Firebird started with a nice California car but was not number matching. D&P performed a complete body-off the frame restoration. The owner wanted a modern powertrain with lots of horsepower. D&P selected a GM Performance Parts LS9 (ZR1 Corvette) engine with 638 H.P.

  An article recently published on HotRod.com about our 1932 Ford Build: Most hot rodders can identify with the “car guy” label, but Bill Verboon figures he’s been one since he was 8 years old.

Featured Car: 1970 Chevy Nova

After receiving the car the owner decided he wanted more horsepower and driveability so he brought the Nova to D&P for mechanical modernization. D&P removed the tired 396 engine and Muncie 4 speed and replaced it with a brand new GM Performance over the counter ZZ427 big block.  In addition to the new powerplant D&P installed a new Tremec 5 speed TKO transmission package with a hydraulic...

Featured Car: 1955 Nomad

D&P customer Bob always wanted a 1955 Nomad but it wasn’t until later in life that he had the time to track one down. After finding a good starter car Bob brought the Nomad to the crew at D&P for a few upgrades like modern power steering, disc brakes, and a new GM Crate engine. Bob drove the car for a few years and then decided he wanted to have his Nomad completely restored. So Bob went back to D&P and he and Darryl sat down and developed a game plan to build Bob the Nomad he...
