Our Approach

Learn about how we will work with you on your race car, classic car, or performance car in our shop.

01. Learn & Confirm

Every project begins with an understanding of your goals. We start by asking a few directional questions and then we listen. Before we proceed, we play back our understanding to confirm we’ve got it right.

02. Propose

With an understanding of your goals, we develop a proposal that explains our approach and what you can expect if you choose to work with us.

03. Plan

With agreement to proceed, we develop a detailed plan tailored to your project so that you have a clear understanding of every step.

04. Deliver

We execute on the plan delivering the highest level of quality and attention to detail possible, while keeping you fully informed along the way.

05. Reflect

Upon completion, we want your feedback. If you are not 100% happy with the results, we want to know, and we will take appropriate action. Nothing is more important to us than your satisfaction with our work, and your enjoyment of your car.

Our Guiding Principles

Z2 Motorsports is founded on the principles of providing the highest level of quality and customer service possible to every car/driver who enters our performance car shop. We are a low-volume, high-touch shop committed to 100% satisfaction.  There may be shops that can do it cheaper, but none can beat our quality and service standards.

Cars In Progress

1968 Chevy Camaro

Don’t let the stripped down look fool you, this 68 is going to be evil.  We have a full restomod build planned, with a Whipple blown LS7, Super Magnum Tremec 6-speed, Art Morrison suspension front and rear, big brakes. big wheels, and lots of interior goodies.  The outside will be jet black with flush mounted glass, drip rails removed, and an RS front end, sans bumper.  The future might be electric, but it won’t growl like this beast will

1985 Jeep CJ7

When this very lucky chassis is reunited with its body, this will be a beautiful original-ish restoration bringing this tired 4 wheeler back to life.  Everyone loves the classic look of CJ’s, but reliability was never their strong point.  Our restoration will retain the Jeeps original look, while improving reliability and function with a Howell Fuel Injection conversion, ignition system upgrade, 1-piece rear axle conversion, and a moderate 2.5″ Old Man Emu lift, riding on knobby-laden 33″s.  Classic looks that won’t let you down

1973 Corvette

This 73 is a bit of an odd duck, but who needs to be like everyone else?  With an all-fiberglass 81 front end, roll bar and race dash, this beauty will be perfect for auto-cross and track days.  With a fully balanced and rebuilt 355ci with Phase 2 worked Bowtie heads, capable of 7,500 RPM, this baby will pull out of the corners with ease.
