Old-School Hot Rods Built in a One-Car Garage

Mike Walsh’s Early Vette Shop (EVS) in Shohola, Pennsylvania, is a champion of ‘glass-bodied Chevys and exotic sports rides alike.

Dave Baur lives just down the road from the EVS. He’s one of its frequent visitors and is a true-blue hot rodder, without question.
