For Josh Hart, owner of Burnyzz, cars have always been a passion—one that’s only grown stronger the older he’s gotten.
“I have always been in love with driving fast—that’s no secret,” Josh says. “But I love everything about cars. The classics are amazing because of the history, the design, the way they were created. To see how far they’ve come is truly remarkable. And everything I know has been self-taught.”
Beyond working on cars, Josh also has a love for racing them, starting out drag racing in Gainesville for fun before quickly landing in the Top Alcohol Dragster Class.
“The five seconds I get going down the dragstrip is my peace,” Josh says. “You can’t think of anything else.”
Burnyzz, founded in 2010, offers everything from complete restorations on classics, superchargers and muscle cars to oil changes, motor swaps, paint and upholstery. The shop even offers consignment sales, with a showroom full of cars looking for a new home.
With Burnyzz’s new expansion—Burnyzz 2.0 as Josh has been calling it—clients can expect to see more of the same “quality over quantity” moto but with a dedicated space for each part of the business.
“The ideas are running wild, so you’ll have to stay tuned to see what we come up with. I’m excited to see us continue to grow while putting out exceptional work and letting that speak for itself. As I always say, ‘Don’t tell people your dreams—show them.’”
