FC is a rolling coffee house & restaurant, living art gallery, custom car shop and general hangout. It was designed very simply as a place to go, a destination if you appreciate moving things. With fabulous, simple food, mind-blowing coffee and – due by end of ’19 – two beautifully appointed cafes, FC offers everything you expect from a modern hip hangout – except you don’t have to have a handlebar mustache to enjoy it.
Centrally set in both Sacramento and SLO, Fast Cat provides a convenient hub for any motorized scene, a hub whose spokes reach out into every subculture, group, club and clan you can imagine – from supercars to rat rods, vintage bikes to drift cars. Anything that starts with a key, we embrace*.
With regular events and festivities marking the calendar we are a hub so people can meet, talk, eat, drink and inspire – a local and national center for the huge and diverse car community.
*Cyclists also welcome. We appreciate lycra.
In our Sacramento location we build vintage, iconic cars and bikes with a modern twist. We CHOOSE a time once passed as our forum because we believe there's an aching poetry in things that carry patina. The same reason people are ineffably drawn to old European towns with their crooked cobblestone streets and chipping plaster, because they have a history much deeper than our own.
Couple original patina with painstaking hours trying to accomplish the "cleanest' build possible and you'll understand the dichotomy and love that goes into each one of our builds. Our process respects the essence of the original while not forgetting that cleanliness implies respect. Most tend to scratch their heads at the contradiction of trying to preserve an original hood emblem while adding JDM wheels coupled with modern 4 piston disk brakes but what they may not realize, however, is these things embody the beauty found in the blending of art and culture.
To truly understand what we do, you must understand the four principles of any Fast Cat build; respect, purity, creativity and innovation. Hell, that sounds like a good base for an interesting life.
