Darryl Nance

Darryl Nance grew up in Southern California and was a gearhead at an early age. At 16 (some 40 years ago) Darryl and friends were swapping a 396 into a 1966 Impala. In the late 60’s and early 70’s cars were a very important part of daily life. Darryl and his friends cruised Van Nuys Blvd., were involved with drag racing, and made a lot of road trips. Early vehicles owned included many GM products including Camaros, Chevelles, Impalas, and many more. Darryl gets to drive classic cars nearly every day of his life. One of Darryl’s responsibilities is quality control and every D&P built vehicle is driven and evaluated by Darryl. He also has a new 2010 Camaro SS that is of course tricked out. Darryl’s motto is “If hot rods are in your blood you get it, for everyone else who thinks cars are just transportation no explanation is needed.”

Restoring classic cars started out as a hobby in the family garage and led to creating a business (D&P Classic Chevy) that specializes in restoring and modernizing GM Vehicles from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Darryl and his family and crew have now been building these great cars for several decades.

Darryl’s wife Peggy is a very important part of the company and manages the business operations. Peggy and Darryl have been married for over 35 years and have two sons Nick and Pat. Peggy grew up with hot rods and her first car was a tricked out 1968 Camaro. Peggy’s dad Jake was a “car guy” and Darryl and Jake built many cars together as a hobby including everything from Model “A’s” to a 1957 Belair Convertible.

Peggy is the first point of contact for most callers who are greeted by the always happy and friendly voice of the business.

During the last 25 years the crew at D&P has built many show winning cars. These cars have been featured in numerous magazines and on television programs throughout the world. D&P has also been the subject of several television programs including Rides, Chop, Cut Rebuilt, Overhauling, and many more. Many of D&P’s vehicles have been display cars at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. D&P built cars can be seen on the GM Performance facebook site.

The cars built by D&P are built to be driven. Even though most of the cars are award winners the goal is to build a quality vehicle that is safe, dependable, comfortable and most of all fun to drive. D&P’s customers are the best form of advertising. Most of the new customers at D&P come in as referrals. D&P has worked on thousands of GM vehicles over the years and performed hundreds of frame off restorations.

The family and staff at D&P treats customers and their cars like family. If you are in the area we encourage you to drop by for a shop tour.
