JeffCo Power Tour at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO

For the first time, Manns Restoration was one of the stops on the JeffCo Power Tour. This was the fifth year for the event and they really had a great turnout. The lot quickly filled up with hot rods, muscle cars, and classics. With over 140 cars participating, it really was an impressive sight. Of course, Manns Restoration opened up their facility, so that everyone could check out their latest projects. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, despite the gloomy weather. Of course a few participants couldn’t resist laying down a little rubber on the way out. We don’t encourage that sort of thing…but we will film it. Hope you enjoy the video, thank you for watching!

Thought you might like a shorter, more action packed, video from the 2nd Annual Car Cruise at Passing Lane Motors. Hot rods, Muscle Cars, and Classics…all sounding rowdy and ripping up the street. If your car wasn’t in this one, check out the previous video of the event. It was much longer and we tried to include everyone. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, and Classics – Car Cruise 2014 – Passing Lane Motors



Spring Fling Car Show Gateway Classic Cars – Hot Rods Muscle Cars and Classics


Despite the rain putting a damper on the outside festivities, we still had a great time at the Spring Fling at Gateway Classic Cars. They just moved a bunch of the vendors into the building and took the party inside. They had great music by the Rat Rod Kings, they had plenty of food on hand, and of course, tons of great cars to check out. Manns Restoration, from Festus, MO, brought out their beautiful 1955 Chevy Nomad despite the weather. They also had an awesome supercharged Mustang from Craven Performance that really drew a crowd. Also in attendance were Gateway Motorsports Park, Kent Auto Museum, Rival House garage, Scott Credit Union, and countless others. I hope you like taking a look around, thanks for watching!


Classic Cars and Hot Rods – Manns Restoration Open House – Festus Missouri


I took a trip over to Manns Restoration and Maintenance in Festus, MO on Sunday. They had their annual open house and there were plenty of great cars and great people on hand.  The Manns have been repairing cars in Festus, Missouri since the 1930’s.  They have received numerous world class awards for their high end restoration work.  I encourage you to stop by their shop if you’re ever in the area.  You find them to be very gracious and welcoming people.  Their level of skill and their passion for automobiles is apparent right from the start.  I hope you like my little tour of Manns, thanks for taking a look!
