About Us

My name is Vinnie Minichiello. I have been building muscle cars, hot rods, race cars & motorcycles for over 44 years. I started out in Boston, MA in my dad's garage. I moved to Summerville, SC in 1991 and built my own shop, CMX.

We offer every aspect of fabricating, chassis work, race car work, welding, metal fabrication/shaping, body work, paint work, repairs and any form of customization you can do to a race car, street rod, muscle car or motorcycle. I have built rods, race cars and motorcycles from the ground up.


We specialize in pre 1972 restorations. All of our services are done in house. From fabrication for the chassis, the mechanical works, wiring and plumbing, exceptional and unique upholstery, and all the way to body work, paint and final assembly. We are dealers for a wide selection of vendors. The one stop shop for all of your hot rod needs! This is our passion, so we put our heart and soul into what we do. We take pride in our work. When your job leaves my shop, it represents my name and the work I do, so I want it done right!.
