A look around!

While Andrew was waiting for his Volvo, he poked around at some of our current projects. Take a look!

Full custom frame with air bags and LS1 frame for Pat's soon to be painted truck.

C-10- bagged and swap with a 5.3L V8!

Check back soon for updates!


KCAutoWorx has moved! We are now at 505 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64108! We are pleased to be back in the heart of Kansas City, and our new shop has more then enough space to accommodate any size job!

Although we are constantly trying to promote our engine swap and hot rod projects, KC Autoworx is a FULL SERVICE garage! We can help you out with any problem, on any car! Give us a call, or come by the shop for questions, or any more information.
Andrew's 1988 Volvo 240 had some difficulty on the way from Omaha to Kansas City recently. The muffler detached about halfway through his trip, and he was only going to be in town for about 36 hours. We were able to get the exhaust re-hung and a new muffler installed quickly and efficiently.

He was as pleased with the price as he was with his newly quiet car!

Hot rods, old cars, customs and the such... without friends, it would be a lonely ride. It's amazing how much people are willing to help just for the sake of having another friend on the road with a neat old car. We have had a lot of luck with people supporting our project with time, advice or just kind words.

Now we have even made new friends just by the virtue of going to grab some lunch! A recent trip to Rico's Tacos Lupe led to the spotting of a really fresh F1. Lowered, white walls, and a tough sounding Flathead. Most impressive? This sharp looking 1950 is a DAILY DRIVER! That's doing it right.

Speaking of friends, the shop can get a little lonely without some helping hands. This is how the car bug is planted.

You can also see a small piece of our next project in that first photo. Good thing Lil' Buddy has had his tetanus shot.

Happy feet.

Patience is a virtue... A virtue we haven't had much luck with. We kept putting off the alignment with each new piece of the puzzle. This of course destroyed the already very sad front tires.

Solution: Wide Whites! The F100 is now properly aligned, and feels great. Not bad looking either!

Daily Driving.

It's official, Spring has sprung! The weather has now permitted driving, and ice on the road seems to be a memory for the next few months.

So far this spring: My brother came to visit, as well as our good friend Klem. Being the Midwest, those first few nice days of March led to an impromptu ice storm. One of the hazards of daily driving the ol' F100 is walking out to a snow covered truck!

Luckily the Ol' F100 seemed unfazed by the ordeal. Chris, however, seems less happy to be left in the elements.

In the wild!

On the road again! Our plan was to be driving by Spring, however as you can see by the lovely white covering, we are a bit ahead of schedule! The F100 was able to make it out and about, and we even had time to take some pictures while we waited for one the Midwest's seemingly mile long trains to pass.

One of our first stops? World of Wheels! The Punk Rods did a great job organizing the Motorama 1961 section, and we were in good company with a lot of cool old DRIVABLE hot rods. There was no shortage of muscle cars, and undriven street rods, but come load out time, the real stars were our compatriots in the 'Old School Rods' section. The cacophony of roaring engines, and antique metal were really the stars of the show.

Special thanks to the fella in the bare metal DIESEL hot rod pickup for helping us out with a spare fuse!
