The Shop

Proudly serving MoPar fans since 1978, we have been at our current shop in Lynnwood, WA for nearly 15 years. We work surrounded by memorabilia and old parts that represent the era we love. We are only 15 minutes north of Seattle. Stop by to say hi and roam the aisles...you never know what you'll find!

Our History

Our History

Jeff started working on cars with his father at a young age. He soon grew independent, taking on projects of his own and learning ever since. Now, he and his wife Lisa are proud owners of multiple project cars, and enjoy running their own shop. We are proud of our rich history and enjoy working with our customers!

Who We Are

We are lucky to have such a wide range of skillsets at our shop. Nevertheless, we do have a lot in common including, of course, our love of MoPars and Big E Ales.

Jeff Carter

Jeff Carter

Owner

You could say Jeff has been in the automotive industry since before he was old enough to grow a moustache. His love of MoPar automobiles drove him to start his own restoration business. Jeff opened JC Auto Restoration, Inc. in 1978. Over the years, he and his wife Lisa have integrated themselves into the MoPar community, travelling to MoPar events and helping many other auto enthusiasts with their projects.

Lisa Peterson

Lisa Peterson

Co-Owner

When Lisa first met Jeff she rode a bicycle. That changed pretty quickly! Lisa has become something of an automotive aficionado due to many years of being married to the biggest MoPar nerd around. She loves nothing better than a long road trip in one of their MoPars, and has been known to maybe, just maybe, push the speed limit on those long open stretches of highway in Montana.

Lyle Smith

Lyle Smith

Gauge Restoration Specialist

Hailing from Arizona and an avid Cardinals fan (we try not to hold that against him!) Lyle came to us with a degree in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State as well as an Automotive Tech Degree from Pima College. He has brought a unique skillset to the shop, as well as the great music on his iPod. He is currently learning machine shop skills and plans on adding welding to his already vast resume.

Ryan Lacabanne

Ryan Lacabanne

Gauge Restoration Technician

Chef in his former life, Ryan now spends his days working at JC Auto Restoration and his nights jamming on his guitar or watching Frozen with his daughter.

Karla Pollowitz

Karla Pollowitz

IT Consultant

A nerd in the computer field (not the automotive), Karla joined JC Auto in 2015 to add a modern touch to a seasoned industry. In a few short months, she has constructed the new E-Commerce site that you see now before you. Away from the shop, Karla trains frequently for marathons, putting in more miles on a weekly basis than most do in their car.

Our Cars

Perhaps we take so much pride in our work because, as car owners ourselves, we would expect nothing less on our own projects. The world of MoPar is exciting, from the cars to the community. We are are proud to celebrate our passion in both our personal and professional lives with a fleet of our own cars.
