FEBRUARY 2017 THE SHOP 33 PERFORMANCE Street Machinery's forte is not limited to working over patina cars and trucks. It does restorations as well as ground-up builds. On one of our visits, we saw an excellent restoration of a rare, '62 Chevy Bubbletop, complete with the factory 409 and 4-speed. There was even the recent case where a Honda was restored for the owner's sentimental rea- sons more than building another street freak. A PARADE OF VEHICLES To expedite his own other specialty of drop- ping LS engines into unsuspecting rides, Maryanovsky custom-creates many of the ancillary pieces needed such as wiring har- nesses, cooling lines, motor mounts and other brackets. Built either in-house or locally to his specs, those parts are for sale to home builders for their projects, too. It's not just the full-on car build folks who frequent the showroom at Street Machinery. That brings up how Maryanovsky gets the word out about his shop. Once anyone has liked Street Machinery (streetmachinery. com) or Maryanovsky on Facebook, they can see regular posts about what is being created as well as what Maryanovsky is out there buying. Not every ride that comes out of Street Machinery is a hot rod. This rare '62 Bubbletop 409 looks like it just came from the factory. From stock frames to all-new, the workload is varied and ever-changing.
