Three Levels of Service:

EXCELLENT: All the work we do at Evolve is Excellent or above. Excellent is also known as #2-level. These cars are worthy of bringing to local car shows, and are often awarded a trophy. However, they will not arrive at the car show in a trailer – they get driven. This level is for owners who wish to enjoy their cars on the road, and be proud of how they present.

CONCOURS: Concours cars are among the finest examples in the world. Every detail is correct, down to the smallest piece of hardware. These cars are judged at world-renowned car shows, by experts in the various car makes. These cars are not driven other than for exhibition. Concours cars are referred to as #1-level, for good reason.

RIDDLER: This level is reserved for one owner. The car will be a one-of-a-kind custom design, built to compete in the Autorama car show circuit, which culminates in the world’s top custom car award: The Riddler Award. Expert engineering and creative coachwork goes into every little detail, to be critiqued and admired by tens of thousands of collectors and hobbyists around the world. Evolve is currently seeking a sponsor to partner with us in the production of this truly unique masterpiece.

About Us
from the president:

In 2009, in front of the garage at my house, a small group of talented people dedicated themselves to what is now San Diego’s largest classic car restoration shop, with customers across the country and even the world. From our humble beginnings, we’ve come a long way. We’re now able to provide top-notch service in a beautiful, well-orchestrated facility.

Evolve represents something very special to me: the possibility of a classic car restoration shop that operates at a high level of organization. We’re endeavoring to accomplish something unique: bringing the corporate methodologies that have produced some of the world’s most successful laboratories, manufacturing, and logistics companies, and applying those techniques to classic car restoration. <read more>
