Amazing team Jeff is a great person and just sold me the best car I’ve ever had in my life William Dixon
I have worked with Jeff and his team now on multiple occasions; they have not only sold vehicles for me, but done AMAZING mechanical and body work on my vehicles. They are extremely honest and want to make certain that every last detail is of the utmost perfection and to the customers' satisfaction. It's Alive Automotive is what every shop should strive to be!!! Heather Everett
I just purchased a classic car from It's Alive Auto a couple days ago and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had when buying a car. The vehicle was represented accurately and the price was fair and reasonable. I feel as if I've made a new friend in Jeff Homsher and he has personally called me since the purchase to verify my satisfaction with the vehicle. I am definitely a satisfied customer and will shop with them again. Dwight Gascho
I had Jeff and team work on my 67 Healey. They removed all the rust under the car and then they completed a fabulous paint job. I would highly recommend Jeff Homsher for all your restoration needs. Contact me for a referral or with any other questions about their work. Thanks Jeff and Crew! Joe Heitkamp
We purchased a 2013 Maxima from It's Alive Automotive a few weeks ago. We were very hesitant to stray from the large well known retail stores but now so happy we did. Jeff is very knowledgeable about cars and was so amazing about accommodating the times we could check out the car. The sales process was so relaxed and seamless. I would highly recommend this honest business owner to any of my friends and family and will use them again in the future. #awesomeexperience #greatdeal Kerry Christine
I had Jeff and Team do some metal and body work on my 63 Triumph TR-4. If you have a vintage car and you need some work on I would recommend them. They are very professional and fair. Jeff wants to know what you want done and works to accomplish that with his team. His time estimates and prices are as close as you could ask for. T.j. Zych
Jeff and his team did an outstanding job on a bare metal repaint of my 67 Jaguar. I told him I wanted perfect black paint (which is the hardest color to do well) and they hit it out of the park. I couldn’t be more pleased. John Testrake
My wife and I just bought a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali from Jeff and his team. We have never had a better car buying experience. Whether you are buying late model cars or taking in the run down classic for new life, It's Alive Auto is the place to go! Gavin Magruder
I should begin by saying..."I never post reviews but I always read them". I feel compelled this time because if you are considering using this company but may be on the fence because its not advertised very widely, I recommend you get in contact with these guys immediately! Customer service and communication was phenomenal throughout me trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my truck, paint color, price, time frame, etc etc etc. I got EVERYTHING I asked for and before the deadline they gave themselves. Hard working crew dismantled, prepped, painted, and reassembled within just a few days. I've had 6 compliments within the first week on their quality of work and uniqueness of my new paint. Love these guys. Support this local business!! Homsh, can I get some matching racing stripes before I go to Miami next week? Kevin Brensinger
This place was amazing... :) They fixed my car door in May 2015.......less than 600.00 were 2 other shops in Waterloo Il.wanted 1,500 to 1,700......Big differents. If you want good honest work give this place a chance.....Thanks again... Misty Totra Lang
Jeff and crew did some body work on my car after I was rear-ended. Quality work at a reasonable price. Looks brand new! Sue Schulte Indelicato
Just picked up our 81 Corvette she is absolutely beautiful!!! Thanks to all of you for making her so wonderful! Tina Maxey Shaw
These guys are awsome !! Thier work is second to none for a small repair or a complete restoration. James Shaw
Fantastic job on my car! They were flexible and easy to work with! Results were better than I expected. Thank you! Barb Rosenbloom
Did great work on my TR-8. They make sure work is done right. so happy to have it back on the road after 3 years. and love the paint on the hood. Jim Birr
My brother-in-law and I were close to finishing a frame-off restoration of a '71 TR6. We wanted the front and rear ends professionally aligned as well as have a third set of eyes check our mechanical work. I called around and talked to several people about where to get the work done. Almost everyone suggested I meet with Jeff at It's Alive. I knew after my first conversation with him that he was the right guy. He gave a realistic estimate of cost and time. Jeff kept me informed throughout the process and made sure I was on- board with his suggestions. The TR was completed when promised and at a very fair price. It drives and he caught a few details we hadn't fully addressed. I strongly recommend Jeff and his team and will use them again in the future. Thanks Jeff! Joseph Ambrose
It’s Alive Auto repainted my car and it looks beautiful. Jeff, the owner, was very personable and kept me up to date during the process. The car came back in excellent condition and at a great price. If you’re thinking of restoring your car, I would definitely give them a call. Paul H
Really great outfit. They did some complex work on my race car chassis and then painted the fiberglass bodywork. Fantastic job in all regards. Nice to work with sharp people with tremendous skills Michael Wirrick
I am restoring a 69 GTO and had to replace all the parts in the front end. Afterward took it to a shop to have it aligned, I was told it could not be done. Which meant they did not want to put the time in to do it right. I took it up to It’s Alive and Jeff had no problem with working on an old car undergoing a restoration. He was able to bring the car back into specs, yes it took more time than a new car but they did it RIGHT and did not pass the work on to someone else. I have many old cars and they are my new go to with things I am unable to do in my garage. Thanks for your help with my project car. Tom Quirke
Top notch place. The clutch went out on my 94 Rover Mini Cooper. I searched all over STL to find someone to help. The owner Jeff went above and beyond to help me out. He's a class guy. He fixed all the issues without any problems. I highly recommend this place for any automotive issues. They can fix anything. Check out his shop and you'll see the quality work they do. Bryan Wyman
Well where to start....i brought them a HUGE problem, otherwise known as my beloved 62 Lincoln Continental, that has never ran right since i bought it. I had so many mechanics try and fail to figure out the mysterious issues of this oldie but goodie. "THESE GUYS" had the experience and patience to really get in there and diagnose these odd issues i had that were not by any means common. TRUST ME, take ur car to them FIRST and save yourself the frustration, disappointment and $ ud get from a less experienced team of mechanics! ITS ALIVE are a great bunch of guys that love what they do and know exactly what their doing. Alissa Ferguson
Recently bought a car from Jeff at its alive auto and couldn’t be happier with the car and the service. The knowledge that Jeff offered was really incredible. Very honest and most helpful. Really can’t say enough nice things about him. Highly recommended and thanks again for a beautiful car! Geoffrey Hardcastle
I drove from Pittsburgh to Missouri and was treated like gold. For any person interested in reconditioned automobiles of the highest quality and friendly customer service, please see Geert and Jeff. Best guys ever. Jesse Matta
Premier classic car sales and restoration experts in St. Louis, run by retired Boeing engineer. Full off-frame rotisserie restoration to simpler collision repair. Jason Rauschelbach
Owner Jeff saved me a lot of money and headaches by inspecting a vehicle at Moto Exotica (large classic car dealer) near him in St. Louis. Hagerty Classic Car Insurance (the best in the genre) recommended him; thank goodness they did. It took him 3 trips to Moto to make them get the 1947 Willy's Wagon running as it should (and as Moto described in their listing). So if you're buying a classic in the St. Louis area, this is the guy you want representing you (unless you go yourself). Jeff acted in my behalf as a good "attorney" would, making sure that I got what I paid for. THANK YOU JEFF!!! James Manry
I have known of Jeff's passion for classic cars forever, and have seen his craftsmanship. Nobody pays more attention to detail. Can't wait to get my next car from It's Alive Automotive! Keith Liberman
Great place to have your car restored, buy an antique/classic vehicle or just admire the showroom! Adam Zierenberg

I just wanted to take the time to let you know what a fantastic and professional job you and your crew did on my award winning 1968 Corvette convertible. When interviewing shops looking for someone I could trust with my completely restored with exception to the tired original paint corvette, I felt comfortable talking with you and your crew. You understand the bond between a customer and their classic cars. This is an NCRS top flight car that had worn original paint. Now it has a new paint job thanks to It's Alive Automotive. All I can say is Wow!! I am so happy with the end result which is breathtaking with such attention to detail. Thanks Jeff and crew! Dennis
