A big part of being into the car scene is the lifestyle that goes along with it and we dedicated this part of the website as a nod to the life we have as car guys. Being a car guy in Wisconsin has its challenges, so we make the most of our precious time we have to enjoy our cars by getting together with our friends and family when Mother Nature allows it. We try to live life to the fullest by putting miles on our hot rods, getting outside hunting and fishing, boating, you name it. Stay tuned to this page for photos from our adventures in hot rod land and the great outdoors, along with anything else that gives us inspiration to keep doing what we do. We hope you get a kick out of the glimpse into our lifestyle and also hope it encourages you to get outside and enjoy life to its fullest!

Our Mission

With each project, we look at the big picture to determine how you are going to use your car, and then come up with a package tailored to those needs. We spend a lot of time staying current with our parts suppliers to ensure we build the best cars - and we ensure that each car is a true reflection of the owner’s individuality. After all, that’s what makes this country what it is!

Fast Freddie, Jr. has been a motor head since childhood. At age 16, his first car was a '73 Camaro project car that he and Sr. put together and he owns it to this day. Freddie worked for several years at a large restoration firm as business manager. Seeking independence in order to operate a shop the way he felt customer's needs should be handled, he teamed with Sr. to open Fast Freddies Rod Shop. Freddie is a hands on guy, working in the shop and managing the business.

Freddie Sr. has always been involved with cars, working at the local drag strip in high school and later collecting Studebakers for many years. Sr. helps out at the shop when time permits, and is involved with marketing the business including attending car shows.
