About Us

Jim Wright has over 45 years of machinist experience, learning from his partner and mentor, Merle Baker, may he R.I.P. 

Jim began his love for building engines and tuning starting with Karting at age 12. By 16, he was racing at Dragway 42. Then at the age of 21, Jim was the National Record Holder of G stock Automatic.


Today, although we no longer do engine assembly,  Jim still has the passion and desire for engine building for Hot Rods and helping customers in their endeavor for making power.  His love is the early Hemi engine and has created some very unique "non cookie cutter" HEMI engines.

Here at Motorheads Garage and Machine Shop, we’re committed to top quality machining, and custom welding. Stop by, or call and tell us your needs for your automotive desires. We can make your "Dream" come true.
