After many years managing his engineering businesses, the avid automobile enthusiast took on a major project to create a dream classic car look with modern conveniences and began his locally-owned classic car resto-mod and restoration shop, opening in 2006.
Well-known for his highly awarded SS854 Camaro resto-mod: 1969 Classic White with Orange Stripes Camaro that while still street legal operates on 1500+ Horsepower from its mirror-like TWO V-8 ENGINES under its hood.
From there, he was able to engineer and design deck brackets in shop space that assembled the same dream Camaro to weld the custom prototype pieces of the structural steel bracket design system.
System Creator and innovative entrepreneur, Gary Higginbotham, P.E., of Alpharetta, GA,is a Masters in Engineering Alumnus from Clemson University with forty years of professional experience in the construction and design industry.
While professionally engineering designs for many prominent Atlanta builders, he saw the need for structural reinforcement of deck and porch systems to confirm with current code standards.
