I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars. I’ve read about their cars and work, but never actually got to see inside their shop. There was no way I’d miss this.

Restored Memories

              Here at RM we love to bring back lost projects and giving them a whole new life.  These two here are no exception.  Just a little bit of hard work, paint and go fast parts help make these engine bays look better than new.  If its up to us the muscle car will never die.   

Work In Progress

   Most of the designs are set and the fabrication is in full swing.  With a team at each end of the car it truly is a representation of the best RM has to offer.  We are excited to see the end result. Airlift, Magnaflow and Barton have all stepped up and supplied parts to help makes this a show stopper.  Check back here for more updates and make sure your in Las Vegas @ Sema for the unveil.      

SEMA Design Project

We are excited to partner with Pafaff Designs in creation of the Rapture Challenger! This project will have many unique one-off design aspects that are sure to set the SEMA show on fire.  Keep checking in for more updates as the project moves forward.              

Monterey Motorsports Reunion

This year at Laguna Seca was another great success.  The weather, fans, atmosphere and the stiff competition was amazing.  We had two great classics on display under the RM Canopy.  Jim Bartel’s super fast Shadow DN4 and Jim Farley’s freshly restored Cobra 427.  After a good fight Craig Bennett driving the DN4 was able to come away with the win! Congratulations to everyone for their outstanding finishes all weekend long.  Can’t wait for next year’s Reunion so we can do it all over again.         

Mid Summer Heat

Summer is in full swing here at the shop.  We are busy helping our customers get the most out of this great weather.  Program updates, race set-ups, system diagnosis & repairs are all happening here at RM.  Many vehicles are getting the final touches before the big cruise season hits here in MI.  As well as the race guys preparing for the second half of the season. Our race team in on the road heading to Laguna.  The Monterey Motorsports Reunion is right around the corner.  This year proves to be one of the most exciting as we are bringing Jim Bartel’s freshly rebuilt Shadow DN4.  If you are out at the event please stop by our pits to say hello and check out the exciting vehicles on display.        

RM Wins @ Indy

This past weekend was the first ever vintage race at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  What an event it was at the Brickyard, great fans, competitors and an unbelievable line up of the most impressive vintage racers.  After a hard fought race RM, with Craig Bennett driving Jim Bartel’s Shadow DN4, takes the top place on the podium.  We would like to thank all those who have helped support us and the fantastic crew back at the shop.  Looking forward to the next race and stretching out the legs on the Jim Bartel’s amazing DN4 again!
