“I’ve always liked the look of the Scout but always felt it needed more,” said Brandon Segers, Co-Owner of Velocity Restorations.  “The fact that they’re such a rugged truck provides a great baseline to start with.  We then get in there and make them more appealing for today’s drivers.”



Velocity Restorations specializes in frame off modified restorations for modern driving, comfort and reliability.  With meticulous attention to detail, every piece of the truck was restored, resulting in a rugged Scout that is comfortable, reliable and eye-catching from every angle.
