As mentioned in the Men.Style.com SXSW photo diary, the Austin Speed Shop was an amazing place to visit on my trip to the Texas capitol. Mr. Cory Moore — who is part owner — was kind enough to give me a tour and let me take a bunch of photographs. The Speed Shop is a partnership between a group of hot rod fabricators and craftsmen, with Mr. Jesse James being the most well known. The shop specializes in hot rods and all sorts of other pre-1963 rides. While I was checking things out there were some great looking cars being worked on. Plus, behind the garage there is a cool graveyard of rusting old rides awaiting a rebirth. If you are visiting Austin anytime in the near future make sure to stop by the Speed Shop and take a look around.
In addition to Mr. Moore’s other businesses, he recently opened a cool little men’s and women’s retail shop on South Congress called Luther’s.
Luther’s // 1200 S. Congress Ave. // (512) 442-7000
Austin Speed Shop // 1414 S Lamar Blvd. // (512) 693-727
