Our History

For nearly a decade, the Jim Weimer Rod Garage has been
designing and manufacturing parts for the rodding industry.

Thousands of MII kits have been built in the Rod Garage.

Many other street rod parts such as chassis and suspension parts
have also been designed and manufactured in the shop as well.

We pride ourselves in offering the finest quality parts and delivering outstanding service.

We would like to be a part of your next rod project.

Rules Of The Road

Wisconsin Motor Vehicle Registrations:

Legislation has been introduced in the Wisconsin Assembly to provide legal registration to hobby vehicles with a clear title, required safety equipment and in good working order. Under the bill, these registrations would be available to owners regardless of the vehicle's color, former owner or previous uses. Identical legislation has already been introduced in the Senate and will be considered in the Transportation Committee. The bills ensure that all vehicles, including ones that predate Federal Motor Safety Standards (FMVSS) or are specifically exempted from them, are not denied registration or forced into a highly restrictive registration class, for non-compliance with FMVSS. This includes pre-1968 vehicles, imports, kit-cars, government surplus vehicles, etc.
