American Hot Rod Shop In London

 

Wild & Sons is a London based American classic custom shop. In the United States it is not uncommon to see a hot rod or speed shop, but in the United Kingdom they are few and far between. Victor Wild opened this shop just around a year ago. They specialize in American car year models ranging from 1901 to the mid 1980’s. Wild & Sons also restore cars for customers, build rat rods, service cars, and sell factory and performance parts etc. We are very excited because Wild & Sons is our very first international feature!

Victor Wild told us American classic car movies such as Smokey And The Bandit got him into American cars. This is Victor’s 1980 Pontiac Trans Am. He has plans on dropping a late 90’s Nascar engine in it soon that should make 720hp. Wild & Sons like to feature their creations at the famous Ace Cafe in London.  We look forward to hearing more about this monster he is creating.

This is a 1953 Plymouth Cambridge business coupe rat rod. After Wild & Sons customized it they dropped in a 350ci engine from a 1969 SS Camaro and a TH350 automatic transmission. I must say, this is a car I would like to personally own myself.

This is the Wild & Sons 1964 Pontiac Grand Prix. This car has been nicknamed Rough and Ready. It has a 389ci engine with a Holley 750 double pump carb.

Wild & Sons also make custom bikes for customers. The slanted VW wheels and tires look really cool on this bike. The model seems to have complete control of this wheeled creation.

We asked Victor what style of racing do most people follow in his area and he told us F1. He also told us most people that do race get involved in classic track racing. It is pretty cool to compare what styles of racing people are into from different parts of the world. In my home state of Alabama most people follow drag racing, dirt track, and nascar.
