Binbrook Speed & Custom is the Featured Builder at Motorama 2024

Binbrook Speed and Custom will be the Featured Builder at this year’s Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors. The Hamilton, Ontario-area shop focuses on traditional hot rods and customs, largely from the 1920s and 1920s, but will be flexing their muscles with a 1968 Chevelle, which will be on display at Motorama.

Binbrook owner Keith MacIntyre became interested in old cars as a late teen; while he has a passion for the creative designs of late-20s to mid-50s hot rods, he decided to work on something that’s ‘not the norm’ for his shop.

“It’s not your typical ’68 Chevelle to say the least, I think it’s going to be a real head-turner,” said MacIntyre. “’50s trucks on air-ride, with modern engines, and muscle cars with completely brand-new chassis, a lot like the Chevelle we’re bringing, I think that’s the future for the next little while. I’m happy we can bring some stuff to show that we have no problem making sure those look amazing, too.”

MacIntyre says the ’68 Chevelle is a hot rod shop’s take on a muscle car, noting that there’s a lot of sheet metal changes and customization that only a real purist would recognize. He’s curious to see how showgoers will react to the build.

Additional vehicles that MacIntyre will bring to the show include a Ford Model A Roadster, a ’57 Chevy 150 and a slammed air-ride ’51 Ford F3. As the Featured Builder, Binbrook Speed and Custom will have a display in Hall 2; they’ll also have their usual spot in Hall 1, plus a few cars in the ZEHR Insurance Mayhem… in the Backroom.

MacIntyre runs Binbrook with his brother, Brian, both of whom will be on-hand throughout the three days. In addition to the vehicles, they’ll showcase some of the projects that they’ve done and projects that are ongoing. There will also be a bare chassis on display.

Motorama takes place March 8, 9 & 10 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. MacIntyre says he’s beyond grateful for Binbrook to be named the Featured Builder, an honour that came as a surprise to him.

“I’m just a guy with a shop, building cool cars for cool guys,” he said. “Without having good customers, you can’t build good cars, and without building good cars, you can’t build great cars… without a show like Motorama, you can’t get a crowd that’s enjoying the cars; it’s this big wheel that needs every single part involved.”
