"Legendary Motorcar has worked tirelessly over the past three decades to support and promote the sport and restore some of its most cherished automobiles to pristine condition.”
Legendary Motorcar has also restored several significant racing automobiles back to their full glory over the years. For example, in 2016 it unveiled a 1966 Ford GT40 used as a support car for the famous Canadian Comstock Racing Team at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park during the CMHF’s 2016 Celebration of Speed.
More recently, visitors to the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show's Castrol Alley saw Legendary Motorcar's handiwork with many fully restored classic muscle cars from the ’60s and ’70s on display.
Peter Klutt has also raced competitively for 20 years in SVRA and TransAm and has 29 NASCAR Canada starts.
Legendary Motorcar also has racing run in the family with Peter's son Gary competing in the NASCAR Pinty's Series. Gary Klutt was NASCAR Pinty’s Rookie of the Year in 2015, was named one of NASCAR Next Class in 2016 and recently made his NASCAR Monster Series debut at Watkins Glen International.
