We approach each project as an opportunity to do something completely new but also timeless.
The beauty of a car comes not just from the color and the finish, but from the perfection of each moving part working together to create power and other functionality. We don't cover up the intricacies, rather feature them as key to the esthetic value and composition of a truly custom car.
We value, above all, our relationships with our customers. From the articulation of a clients dream to hearing about a day behind the wheel of their Pugesek custom, our joy is found in the shared excitement of a project. It's personal!!
Meet the Pugeseks
Owner, Larry M Pugesek grew up either learning from Dad in the garage or engineering something new from anything he could find. He finished his first car, a 1972 Monte Carlo with 1,080 horse, by the time he was 19 years old. After learning body and paint techniques from his Dad, Larry went on to Crew Chief for a ProStock, adding high performance technology and fabrication to his knowledge base.
Larry's creations have been featured in museums, books, and magazine covers. Every car he has built since his first has won top awards and some of the most competitive shows around.
Dad, Larry J Pugesek, inspired it all. Larry has been doing custom paint and body work, hot-rodding and drag racing since the time captured by American Graffiti. He always has a project going whether his own 68 Chevelle, one of his sons muscle cars, or a custom paint project for a friend. His paint techniques and color savvy are recognized among the best.
And then came Everett, third generation already learning the tricks and how to's. After school he can be found in the shop painting Hot Wheels with his Tester paint set, watching his Dad create, or asking his Grandad about his days at the drag strip. Check out the Racing page to see what else he's up to!
1972 Monte Carlo
Larry M's first baby. He built it while still in high-school and was the car his Mom used to drive him to baseball. His inclination to push the limits and buck convention started young. Was originally built to race, but a winning show car was the result.
Cinnamon Twist: Dad's 1968 Chevelle
Living life in the fast lane. This Chevelle was bought new and a local legend. Once all the boys cars were built, they finally got back to his other pride and joy. Pugesek Motorsports complete restoration completed in 2015.
