FastTimes Rods Inc. is the largest street rod chassis manufacturer in New York State. It is the offspring of Pete Clark’s Nite Owl Welding which was started in 1999. We have built an excellent reputation on the quality and value of our products and proudly stand behind everything we sell. We currently own and occupy approximately 7,000 sq ft of manufacturing space and are ready to expand.

Most of our employees have been in the custom vehicle business for an average of 15-20 years and demonstrate their commitment and expertise with every street rod we build.

We are open from 10 am – 8 pm or later most days and we can usually be found here most weekends as well, however it is always best to call before a visit.

If you would like to take advantage of the services that FastTimes Rods has to offer you, please contact us by phone at 1-833-668-3739.

Mission Statement

We realize that setting out to build a street rod can be a daunting task. Just the sheer number of manufacturers along can lead to hair pulling and hours frustration trying to decide on how best to spend your hard earned money.

Our goal is to provide the customer with an education before all else. We offer information in our “How to Shop for a Street Rod” brochure and are happy to make suggestions on where to save money, where to spend it and we always keep our pencils sharp to give you the best value for your money.

What we absolutely will not do is sell you a product that may cause problems or safety issues down the road, just to save a buck. We have found over many years that spending a little extra on brand name, top quality components leads to a safe, reliable vehicle with excellent resale value.

When you call FastTimes Rods, you talk to the owner, Pete Clark, and not a salesperson who may or may not have any technical experience. Pete is more than happy to answer your questions and share his years of experience in helping you to create the street rod of your dreams.

Quality is never an accident, it is always the result of an intelligent effort.

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten.
