WW Speed & Customs Team

Willie Davis

Willie Davis

Shop Manager, Builder, and Fabricator

Our Team

Willie was born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado into a family of mechanics and car racing. At a young age, you could find him in the garage helping his father work on friend’s cars, race cars or whatever needed fixed. After college, Willie worked as a mechanic in several local shops and raced cars.

In 2004, he opened his own business called Big Willie’s Garage where he started working on hot rods. Here he did all the maintenance, upgrades, repairs and restorations. As the business grew, so did the projects. After 15 years in business he had built and worked on many cars on a local and national level.

In 2019, Willie stepped away from his business to team up with Warren Walcher to establish WW Speed and Customs. They have spent the last three years putting the new shop on the map with numerous builds– the most well known of which is “El Diablo”, a 1971 Ford F100 pickup which has won many national awards including the 2021 Good Guys truck of the year. Willie manages all areas of the shop, works closely with customers, oversees projects, does fabrication as well as assembly. He has made cars his life for the last 30 years and does not plan on stopping any time soon!
