Inspired by the Drifter's Racing Club
Drifters Garage was inspired by the 1940–50's Drifters Racing Club in Redondo Beach, CA. Ron Stahr's father was also an auto enthusiast, passing down his love of automobiles and his beloved 1928 Ford Model-A Roadster Pickup, that is featured by Drifters in many photographs and on our classics roadshow tour.
Our customers trust and love our work because of our work ethic, quality, and attention to detail. We work with each and every customer to tailor the car or truck specific to their tastes and personality. Your ride is an extension of you, and we work tirelessly to make that show.
