Craig Mullins, founder of the Speed Shop, has announced the grand opening of a 7,000-square-foot showroom in Selbyville. It features the Speed Shop's very own restored muscle cars and trucks along with similar models on consignment.

To celebrate, the Speed Shop is holding a luau-style party complete with a pig roast from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7. The public is invited.

"We are bringing back an era when cars were sexy and had engines that roared. When cars were more a work of art than a simple mode of transportation," said Mullins.

"There is something beautiful that happens that is difficult to put into words. The moment you slam your foot down on the gas and you feel that hard American muscle respond, it creates an unforgettable feeling. I believe everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime. I caution you though, you will get hooked," said Fernando Guajardo, head of sales and marketing for the Speed Shop.

Mullins, a native of Sussex County, is no stranger to the car business as well as the racing circuit. He began his career working for his father Gene, who owned a used car dealership in Bridgeville. This is where Mullins honed his restoration skills as well as his passion for fast cars. At 21, Mullins was racing and winning local and national stock car races. "I won races for my dad; he challenged me to be the best by betting against me on races. If you knew my father Gene, you would understand," he said.

Mullins said, "I love [classic muscle cars], and there are many of us who appreciate them and want to keep this part of history alive."

Mullins invites those who share the same passion for cars to come and check out these rides. The Speed Shop was created to serve as a regional hub to buy, sell and trade muscle cars. As their tagline says, these guys make it happen. For more information, stop by the Speed Shop at 37050 Dupont Blvd., Selbyville, or contact Guajardo at 302-535-0451.
