About Us

Valley Autowerks is a small Father and Son Air-cooled Volkswagen shop here in the corner of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virgina. 

We specialize in metal work, rust repair, bodywork, complete suspensions and minor mechanical. I spend most of my time over on the welding table building suspension parts for these cars, six days a week. I've been building beams since 2004 and building them from all new materials since 2007. In those years I have tried it all and seen it all. I've built dozens of cars from mild drop to completely hammered and everything in between.

I won't build you anything that I wouldn't and haven't run myself. I won't try to be a salesman and push parts you don't need, only what will give you the best ride and fit! 

 Too many guys building parts for these cars now that are nothing more than powdercoated bullshit. I mail out all of my parts RAW, so there is no question of the quality. Nothing hidden underneath coating or with slick photography. Every suspension component that leaves this shop is handled, prepared, built and boxed by me personally, not a group of guys I pay to build parts with my name on them. 

Thank you for checking out the store! Give me a shout anytime if you have any questions, concerns or want to just talk Volkswagen!
