The Peggy Sue Restoration

This Week: Updating the cylinder heads

Restoring Peggy Sue's heads to 1957 specifications in every respect was not desirable. Be reminded, gentle reader, gasoline isn't as potent as it was in the days when Elvis gyrated to the beat of "Long Tall Sally."… Continue

"I have been very satisfied with my C.A.R.S. Inc. interior for my 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible. Everything fits correctly, and the best part is that it looks just like the original Chevrolet interior." -- Josh K.

"I always choose to buy my parts at Cars Inc. because the salesmen are very experienced in Chevy restoration, and whenever I have a tech question they 9 out of 10 times either have the answer, or will point me to someone else who does." -- Mark F.

"Since CARSINC is the actual maker of the Chevy interiors and metal they sell (made in the good ol' USA), there is no reason for me to go to some other company that is just selling CARSINC interiors or metal as a dealer. Go to the source, and cut out the delay and confusion." -- Bob R.

About CARS Inc.

CARS Inc. was started in 1976 by a couple of Chevy enthusiasts who had a few classic Chevys to restore, and very few places to turn to find any Chevy restoration parts. This frustration over the then lack of available restoration parts led them to many Chevrolet dealership parts counters, where they would try to scrounge up a few NOS parts here and there.

During this process of looking for old Chevy parts at Chevrolet parts counters, one thing they noticed was that some of the Chevrolet parts departments had quite a few of certain rare old Chevy NOS parts, (sometimes stored in rafters, or on shelves that had not been touched in many years) and other Chevy parts departments would have an entirely different set of NOS Chevy parts. So, one day they decided to buy as many of these parts as they could find and afford from the different Chevrolet parts departments, and start taking them to classic car swap meets, like the one that still goes on every year in Carlisle, PA., for other Chevy car restorers to use and enjoy.

The next big step came when CARS Inc. decided to start actually making certain commonly rusted, worn, or torn items of the most popular classic Chevys (e.g. patch panels, floor pans, and interiors for 1955-1957 Chevrolets). With the introduction of these new genuine C.A.R.S. Inc. restoration parts the business really started growing at a pace that was even faster then they originally expected. Soon they needed to move out of a car show trailer and a rented storage unit to the very first first showroom and stocking warehouse.

Thirty four years, and tens of thousands of genuine CARSINC parts later, CARSINC has settled into their newest 65,000+ square foot headquarters location in Rochester Hills, Michigan. We would love for you to come visit us whenever you are in town. There is also a CARSINC. location in Fullerton, California. CARSINC still also visits most of the major car shows and swap meets across the USA every year.

Oh, as a personal note, please feel free to call us CARS Inc., C.A.R.S. Inc., CARS 1, CARS1NC, or CARSINC (this is what we use), just please call us every time you need the most authentic, high quality, reasonably priced classic Chevy parts around.

Currently CARS Inc. makes and sells over 30,000 classic Chevy restoration parts - from the smallest bumper bolts, to gas tanks, to factory quarter panels, to custom hand-sewn interiors - for these models: 1953-54 Bel Air, 1955-57 Cameo Pickup, 1955-57 Chevy, 1958-72 Impala, 1964-72 Chevelle, Malibu and El Camino, 1962-79 Nova, 1967-76 Camaro, 1970-72 Monte Carlo, 1967-72 Chevy Pickup and the 1971- 72 Blazer and Suburban.
