Big Wig Race Cars is my hobby and part time business of building race cars, hot rods, and street rods.  I specialize in one-of-a-kind handcrafted aluminum interiors, but BWRC can do all aspects of racecar and custom fabrication.

This site contains most of the cars I've worked on over the last few years and also includes a few other things I thought visitors might be interested in.  Prior works are mostly VW oriented, as that's what I grew up on and still have a passion for.

I hope you enjoy your time here...

Regards,
Ric Campbell
