The Master Craftsman designation is given out annually to recognize a front-runner of the automotive restoration community that has gone above and beyond in terms of passing hands-on skills and abilities to the next generation of restoration experts through mentorships and other learning opportunities.

Wenig, who formed The Creative Workshop in Ft. Lauderdale, is an automotive restoration expert, coachbuilder and creator of completely re-bodied cars. The company is dedicated to historic, antique, vintage, post-war and classic European and American vehicles. It features more than 10,000 square feet of workspace where nearly all aspects of restoration, service, repair and maintenance are performed in-house.

Many of the vehicles restored under Wenig’s leadership are award-winners that have been featured at numerous automotive gatherings, such as Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Villa d’Este and the Mille Miglia.

“Jason is the type of individual whose passion for automobiles keeps the American motoring legacy thriving,” said AAT Vice Chair David Madeira. “Importantly The Creative Workshop is not only a great place for vintage vehicles, it employs many young craftsman who will ensure the existence of memorable car cultural pastimes such as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.”

Wenig is a member of many automotive associations, clubs and groups, including the Society of Automotive Historians, Antique Automobile Club of America, the Classic Car Club of America and the Restoration Learning Center for America on Wheels. He is a mentor and generous donor for hands-on youth training the internship and apprenticeship program of the RPM Foundation, the educational arm of AAT.
