“The car had a tree growing out of it,” says Crews.
“I do everything,” adds Crews about this restorations.
But when you look under the hood on about a half dozen of this cars, you’ll see that America muscle is missing.
Instead of using convention engines, Crews restores classic cars with forklift batteries.
