Speakeasy Is Awarded the Golden Sahara II


Welcome to Speakeasy Customs and Classics



Last year, an automotive restorer and a designer started a custom and restoration shop in the back of a Chicago mentoring program. Their names are Gregory Alonzo and Mike Herbert. They found themselves passionate about Cadillacs, and the brand's heritage, so they started a shop, found some cars to work on, and are looking for other fellow Cadillac lovers to join them.

The Work

Our Projects

Our designer, Mike Herbert, has a background in filmmaking, and as he has been developing his design aesthetic, story and character has been an integral part of his work. The custom cars of Speakeasy have the potential to capture an audience just as a famous movie character could. Each car has its own identity, whether it be a perfectly historic restoration, or a themed custom. Because the original designs of a car had a theme, an emotion and a spirit, Speakeasy's job is to reconnect with that identity and help tell its story with you.


our current projects:

1947 Custom Fleetwood Sedan


1949 Custom Coupe DeVille
