About Us

Commando Customs & Classics was launched in 2015 with a racing team and racing gear.  By 2019, the cars became the focus more than the racing.   Steve Kanner and team understand the emotional bond between their clients and their project, toys, dream cars or family heirlooms that need to be brought back to life.  

Many competitors only offer one or two particular services, but Commando offers them all in one shop with quality equipment and special attention to their quality work.

You may see Steve or Commando out at local automotive events, charity events and part of I.C.E, Island Car Enthusiast or Southeast Regional Car Council.
