Maker Partners: Steve’ Restorations & Hot Rods

Mohawk Valley Mini Maker Faire is proud to have Steve’s Restorations & Hot Rods as our maker partners, fresh off this seasons nine episode feature in the History Channel’s American Restoration !

Steve’s Restorations and Hot Rods, in Frankfort, New York, specializes in high quality antique restorations, redesigns and creating one-of–a-kind vehicles and motorcycles. Owner Steve Hale is considered by many to be an industry prodigy, having been in the restoration business since he was 16 years old and painting hot rods in his garage. Years later, Steve and his crew have stepped on the gas and put their abilities to the hundreds of challenging projects that come through the shop doors each year. From “restomodding” a 1972 Gran Torino from a pile of rust into a one of a kind muscle car, to taking two vintage Cadillacs and creating a breathtaking yet functional work of art, Steve and his guys breathe new life into pieces of Americana that no one would ever think could possibly live again.
