Tucked in the rear of a large parking lot off the beaten path of South Lamar, Austin Speed Shop is a place for car gearheads to embrace works of art on display. A peek inside the shop reveals a museum of vintage cars and parts, as well as their own custom apparel and accessories. Next to the shop, a big yellow Texas-shaped sign guards a grassy yard with old car bodies and other parts, inviting car enthusiasts in to chat while they wait for their latest project to come to life. Each job at the speed shop is customized to keep the owner’s original vision for the car in mind, which means restored versions of old classics like a 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan, a 1934 Ford Coupe and a 1960 Cadillac get the treatment they deserve.
