About Us

Nemesis Custom Works is a performance shop founded in 2019 by Russ Barber and Gabe Halsey. With over 30 years of combined experience in the automotive industry, the two friends decided to collaborate and start their own shop. Their passion for drag and street performance projects led to a growing demand for their services, and they continue to work on high-performance cars to this day.
