In 1978 Joey was still a teen, yet he was not afraid of working long hours in Van Art Detail which eventually became Joey's Pace (the operating name). In the beginning there were three business partners which Joey eventually bought out. Joey become the sole owner whereby his passion for automotive and racing grew into Joey’s Place, a fully equipped restoration facility with over 13,000 sq. ft. of shop space in two buildings.
Each building houses separate departments and specialists capable of taking care of customers’ needs. These areas include: mechanical, metal, welding, fabrication, prep shop with a downdraft booth for priming, a paint shop with yet another dedicated booth, and an assemble area.
Through the years, work requests have varied from full restorations, resto mods, high quality paint jobs or small repairs.
Joey’s Place offers accountability of quality work. This mission provides a clear guideline to remember “our customers are who we work for and with to produce results within their desires and means”.
