About Us Home » About Us

We're not just a family-run business.
We're a family-including our customer.

Customer service is more than providing the best possible quality repair and restoration work. It’s about taking care of people—our customers.

We enjoy working with customers from all walks of life and everyone is treated like family here!

“I watched my mom and dad run their full-service gas station. Remember when with every fill-up the attendant would also check your car’s oil and tire pressure? Customer service—going the extra step—has been ingrained in me since I was six years old. That’s the level of customer service our customers can expect.”

—Joe Kuchera, Owner


“I’m lucky to do what I love. This is what I want to do for the rest of my career.”

Joe’s passion for cars started when he worked as a mechanic in his dad’s shop. He started Gulf Coast Auto Body & Restoration Shop in 2012 providing both painting and collision services. Over time Joe discovered the immediate gratification of seeing cars being transformed. He eventually expanded his body shop to match his passion and now provides top-notch remodeling services—restoring collectable high-end classic and exotic cars.

“I started the business for a number of reasons. First of all I’m passionate about cars and I’m building a pathway for my sons. I worked for my dad growing up and I want to offer my sons the same opportunity he offered me. One of my sons works with me and has already started his own sister company Gloss Auto Detailing which offers several levels of detailing services. Every day I get to work with my son and amazing car guys. I also get a lot of satisfaction when I see customers’ reactions to their restored cars.”
