Milestone Paint & Body in Mt. Juliet, TN, started out as a father son hobby. John Miles and his son Jacob spent time out in the shop turning wrenches and spraying paint on everything from classic cars to airplanes. Jacob then went off to join the U.S. Navy and next to Nashville Auto Diesel College (2012 Hall of Fame). By 2002 Milestone Paint & Body was open to the public and were on the path to becoming what we are today…

one of America’s top shelf custom automotive shops.

We have been featured on TV (i.e. PowerBlock®, Gearz® and Search and Restore®) and in magazines (Hot Rod, Car Craft, Truckin’ and more).



From total custom ground up builds to better than museum quality restorations. We work on everything Ford, Chevy, Mopar, muscle, hot rods, antique auto, exotics, and more. Our team has the knowledge and the tools to produce “top shelf” results. Here is just an overview of what we can do.

The amazing pictures of our work you see all over this website are captured by photographer Anthony Ross Tyler. His unique style and passion for capturing the detail, stance and attitude of each car is clearly reflected in his work. Lucky for us he is local and we have worked out a partnership to offer our customers epic photographic images of their Milestone project. From massive 36×24 prints to hang over your fireplace to bookstore quality hardbound books that tell the complete story of your project we offer exclusive photo packages shot by A.R.T.


Some of these are total frame off custom builds others are classic restorations and some are just “as is” relics in our collection waiting for that Milestone touch. Only the best of the best make it to the Milestone Top Shelf!
