Project Gallery

Auto enthusiasts are united by a passion for one type of vehicle or another. For some, it may be a Jaguar XK120. For others, a 1980s Porsche 911 Turbo. Or an awesome resto-mod Defender 110 with an LS3. Or an FJ40 Land Cruiser.

Each of the vehicles below has undergone moderate to significant repair, modification, rejuvenation or restoration at Zakira’s Garage. Some photos are beauty shots, some are owner favorites, some are just taken in our shop. Regardless, each one of these vehicles represents a dream, something the owner cares about, cherishes, enjoys.

A big part of what we love at Zakira’s is seeing the excitement in the owner’s eyes upon delivery. That goes a long way to make a sometimes challenging project worthwhile!”
