Our Process

Being a 4th generation mechanic – 3rd generation business owner in Sonoma County, our name speaks for its self and im proud of that. My quality of work and attention to detail matters to me and I want people to see our work and say wow that’s really nice and clean. I always stand behind my work, if something goes wrong we will fix it. When a new customers come to me with a project they want done, we will talk about all the details, make a plan and schedule a date to bring it in and begin the tear down. I never ask for a deposit. I do ask for you to pay for any and all parts purchased up front. When the work is being preformed I will call you to come in and see the work that has been done, also I will provide you pictures of progress, once you see the work I will bill you. I only bill you when the work is done I never ask for money up front. This process will continue until the project is done. We at Dorsett Speed Shop take a lot of pride in our work. If you have a project in mind please call us.



Have you been dreaming of building your first (or fiftieth) street rod, or maybe restoring a classic car that has been sitting out in the field for the past 30 years? Daniel Dorsett and his team would love to learn about your car or truck and discuss your ideas. If you are in or near Sonoma County, come on by the shop and introduce yourself!



Some of our customers come to us with very specific concepts and ideas about how they envision their street rod or classic car project appearing when completed. Others do not, and that is just fine too. Daniel Dorsett will not only assist with the visualization process, but he and his team will develop a blueprint to make it happen.



Once we have thoroughly embraced your vision and have outlined a clear path to make your custom car dream a reality, our super-skilled team goes to work! Whether it be engine building, wiring, chassis & suspension modifications or metal fabrication, the experienced and talented crew at Dorsett Speed Shop work their magic for you.
