Leader, Fabricator, Designer, Innovator

I’m Darin Smith, owner or DWS Classics in Huntington Beach, CA. As a kid my dad had a repair & tire shop. So naturally I spent many hours helping him and the guys. Later, when I wanted to be a mechanic, my dad tried his best to steer me away from working on cars for a living. Although I ended up working as a service writer at dealerships my heart was always pushing me to actually turn the wrenches on great classic cars, never thinking of it as a full time job. 

For several years I had an industrial space to store several of my own classic cars. Eventually, people at the dealership would ask me to do work on their classic vehicles. In my spare time I did work on classics that nobody wanted to touch. You’ve heard it before – this eventually grew into a business. Soon after leaving my work at the dealership, DWS Classics was born. Now four years on, we have steadily grown. Not only in the repair & service of vehicles but also in the complete restoration and ground up construction of show-winning vehicles. 

With many show winning builds, 2 successful SEMA Battle of the Builders projects, and international classic automotive television programs, DWS Classics has become a respected and sought after name in the classic restoration and custom automotive community.  We plan to stay on this amazing path and keep doin’ what we’re doin’! Onwards and Upwards as they say.
