Building or restoring a classic car can be daunting; trust the experts at Joe's Transmission and Auto Repair in Calhoun to help! Our technicians are well-versed in every area of automobile maintenance and repair. While we are equipped with cutting-edge technology, modern training, and diagnostic and repair capabilities, that doesn't mean we don't appreciate kicking it old school. 

Joes Engine 01Engine Restoration or Replacement - You can replace broken or worn-out parts until your bank account is dry, but it'll do no good if the fundamental issues aren't dealt with first. We know that the most significant issue an old, tired engine faces can't be corrected with bolt-on parts and simple procedures. Internal wear on parts like bearings, valve trains, cams, piston rings, and cylinders leak power and efficiency, while the sludge and buildup run a constant risk of engine failure. Precision measurements, resurfacing, boring, valve seating, bearing and ring replacement, block inspections, and meticulously accurate service are critical to making an excellent running car into a great running car. Sometimes the best option is to have that engine completely remanufactured to OEM specifications which is what we do when we send it back to JASPER Engines to have it completely rebuilt! That has been one of the BEST partnerships we've encountered. We can send your original engine - drivetrain - transmission to the factory and have it returned (your same original pieces) looking and working better than new! What a beautiful feeling that is to put it together in your classic! Talk to our team about a JASPER option! Complete with a factory parts & labor nationwide warranty.


Repair and Upgrades - Classic cars have gremlins, whether due to age or dated designs. If you want the most out of a restoration, electronic ignition systems, performance intakes, carburetors, ported passages, upgraded braking systems, and performance transmission upgrades are just a few of the modern touches you can count on to bring an old car to life truly. If a period-correct restoration is more, your speed, quality factory replacement parts, and precision tuning will give your classic that old-school look and feel. Regardless of what you're looking for, we can help make your classic car everything you want.

Ride Quality - Sometimes, driving an old car will make you question whether that supreme ride quality you remember was as excellent as you recall. The truth is classics offer a ride smoother than even the most modern cars today; they need a little revitalization to recognize their full potential. Old wheel bearings, sagging springs, worn bushings, and busted shocks cause road noise, vibration, poor handling, noisy suspension, and poor ride quality. Once we have inspected and tended to these items, you'll be amazed at how smooth and comfortable your classic ride can be.

With any classic car restoration, you need service you can trust to make sure the job is done right the first time. From the foundation to the finishing touches, we only provide quality repairs for a true restoration that will stand out above all the rest. Call or stop by Joe's Transmission and Auto Repair in Calhoun for the best classic car repair, maintenance, and restoration! It is about a partnership for the "ride" to the finish getting that project done and you on the road in your classic. Choose our shop for that project!
