Danny Giustino, owner of Muscle Express

This week’s podcast show guest is my pal Danny Giustino, the owner of Muscle Express, a restoration and parts shop in Jupiter, FL. I originally met Danny after he started listening to the podcast show and had sent me a few e-mails. One thing led to another, we got to know each other a bit, and I learned that he had been successfully restoring cars and selling parts for over 20 years! That feat alone is a dream that most people only aspire to, and a you might expect it turned out he was not just good at restoring cars, but great at it. His cars have been invited to the prestigious Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in Chicago, and today he’s an expert and nut-and-bolt restorations on most GM cars.

Danny’s first car – a ’65 Chevelle!

Danny grew up in New York in a time when muscle cars were new (and were just normal transportation), and had a lot of funny stories about his childhood and cars. He moved his family to Florida just over 20 years to in search of a warm winter climate, and once he arrived there he started his restoration business and never looked back!

During the interview we covered a lot of ground, discussing the documentation secrets to award winning restoration builds, and also about the keys to success in running a restoration and parts shop. If you’re interested in either topic (or just want to listen to someone who is super entertaining), I think you’ll really enjoy this one!

I’d also like to mention that Dan is a sponsor of the Chevelle Build and supplied original sheet-metal (via his network or parts suppliers) as well as all new soft-rubber components for the car. He also gave me two t-shirts that came off of his back (no joke), but be washed them and they’re good to go!

A few snapshots from Danny’s childhood. When’s the last time you saw a GTO convertible buried in snow?

If you like to talk to Dan directly you can reach him at 800-323-3043, via e-mail at, and also online at

Thanks for the interview, Danny!

  1. […] Since there are many in the muscle car world treat cars as part of our financial portfolio, I thought analyzing another segment of the market – that appears to have great financial viability – would be a great way to go. The Porsche market seemed to be the hot ticket as of late (similar to the Mopar world about 10 years ago), and I was immediate referred to Keith by friend of the show Danny Guistino. […]

  2. […] weeks interview is LIVE with Danny Giustino, owner of Muscle Express, and former guest and friend of the show. Danny visited Detroit Michigan and was kind enough to grace us with a live […]
