Xcar meets an automotive Icon in Jonathan Ward

Of all the resto-modders out there, Icon is surely among our favorites. The California garage takes old vehicles – mostly off-roaders like the Ford Bronco, Jeep CJ and Toyota Land Cruiser – and doesn't just bring them back to their former glory... it makes them better. Not just better than they were, but better (or at least cooler) than just about anything else on or off the road.

Naturally, we're not the only ones enamored of Icon's work, and for its latest video installment, the blokes at Xcar sat down with the company's founder and chief executive Jonathan Ward to document what the operation is all about. What they uncovered is far more than a restoration workshop. Scope out the video above to hear the first-hand account and take a gander at some of Icon's beautiful creations.
