About Us

Welcome to Garage 56. Our namesake comes from the 56th Garage at Lemans. The Garage for the cars that don’t quite fit in anywhere else. G56 was started by a group of friends who were looking for a way into motorsports, and to help grow the community of racers in the southeast area. We are not your large chain performance shops, we’re not going to quickly get you in and out like they may… but we care. Parts? We sell them. Labor? We’ll do it. Fabrication? Lets figure it out. Trackside/Pitcrew support? With pleasure.

We are automotive people intent on helping automotive people. This company started as a yearning for something more. More than a regular 9-5, more than just going to car shows and track days on the weekends. We want to make the car shows, set up the track days and keep everyone driving.  We started this company from scratch and we’re still growing. As we grow we will be able to offer more to you.

“Why did you start a company with nothing?” you may ask. The yearning deep inside was lit aflame by a quote

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. ” – Teddy Roosevelt

Dare mighty things is our motto, cars are our game. We may not be able to compete with online stores that sell junk for cheap, but hey… They’re not trying to bring racing to your area are they?
