Our Approach

Setting a New Standard for Classic Automotive Restoration Excellence

Classic cars aren’t just machines; they’re a blend of artistry, history, and passion—a testament to an era of timeless elegance.

– Shaun Kiddy

Welcome to Kiddy’s Classics, where every restoration is a masterpiece reborn.  We’re not just restoring cars; we’re restoring history, craftsmanship, and artistry. We’re rewriting the narrative of what a truly exceptional classic vehicle restoration means.

Craftsmanship Beyond Compare

Every vehicle that leaves our shop is a testament to the skill, dedication, and artistry of our craftsmen. From handcrafted bodywork to precision engineering, we leave no detail untouched. Our goal is not just to meet your expectations but to exceed them.

Exclusivity and Distinction

We understand the discerning tastes of our clients who seek the extraordinary. Our bespoke builds and restorations are exclusive creations, tailored to your unique vision and executed with meticulous attention to detail. When you choose Kiddy’s Classics, you’re choosing to own an automotive masterpiece that reflects your individuality.

Value in Longevity

While some may see our meticulous approach as a sizable investment, it’s a guarantee of longevity. We understand that the true value of a restoration lies in how long it endures. Our commitment to detail ensures your classic car remains a masterpiece for generations to come.

Enhancing Factory Flaws

We see the flaws the factory often overlooked during the initial assembly. It’s our mission to improve upon these imperfections. Anything less than our standard isn’t accuracy; it’s a compromise. We’re here to respect the original artists and designers by turning every car into the best possible version it can be.

Beyond the Surface

Restoration goes beyond the current issues; it means foreseeing and addressing potential problems in the future. Living in the humid climate of South Florida, we understand that rust isn’t just a spot; it’s a time-lapse of issues waiting to escalate. We tackle rust the only way we know – by eliminating it, now and preventing it in the future.

Craftsmanship Revived

The art of metal repair is an art form we’ve preserved. Our approach ensures that each panel retains its integrity, and the surface tension mimics that of a freshly stamped piece of metal. When you comprehend the rules governing metal formation, you gain insights into the original intended shape of the vehicle. Many original designers adhered to design principles like the golden ratio, which divides panels into 2/3 – 1/3 proportions. These design elements create not only visually appealing contours but also a sense of balance and harmony. When these lines align perfectly, they create an aesthetic masterpiece that resonates with onlookers on a profound level.

Setting New Standards

In an industry often marred by excessive body fillers and improper sanding techniques, we stand out by prioritizing the true art of metalwork. Unlike some shops, we avoid the overuse of fillers and instead employ exclusive sanding methods and precision tools to faithfully recreate the original contours and lines of your classic car. Our commitment is to restore your vehicle to its authentic, intended form, mirroring the vision of the talented artisans who crafted its design from a block of clay.

Beyond Smoothness

While the industry prioritizes making cars look smooth, we focus on much more. Our technicians are true panel beaters, not just filler techs. We strive for a crisp finish that resembles the look of a new car because we believe that most restored vehicles appear overworked.
