About TATA455’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I am a Trans Am fan hands down, but have other cars that I enjoy. I specialize in refinishing Alloy wheels for the collector car world. My wheels are on some of the finest TA's in the world. New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Kuwait, Canada, England, Germany and Brazil to name a few.

My current projects include two '79 WS6 400 - 4spd T-Top cars. One is a Y84 Special Edition that I recently purchased.

Always glad to help with Technical Questions. Just drop me a note.

If you are looking for a full restoration of your Muscle Car, I highly recommend the folks down in Lincoln, Nebraska "Restore A Muscle Car" - - They are Pro's and will meet your expectations of quality and attention to details.

My first car

1965 Ford Falcon 4dr - 6cyl ($75.00) - My Dad bought it for me and helped me make it road worthy. My Dad was a Mechanic by trade and was a part owner of a local shop. He taught me a lot about cars. But I think I will have to credit my brother Michael for really giving me the car bug. He continues to this day to help me with my projects and is a great friend!

Car I wish I still had

Two of them - 1970 Nova SS and 1977 Trans Am!! What was I thinking when I sold these two cars!! Well, at 18, you just aren't always thinking right!! :o)

its funny that u do wheels, my Formula front rims are permanently dirty and darker than the rear ones, i guess the previous owner didnt clean them as often as u should, nothing gets them clean and im gonna end up getting them re-done. Suprisingly in photos u really cant tell but in person it is very noticeable
