How long will it take to restore my car?
This is a very subjective question. The answer is determined as much by the car's condition coming into the shop as anything. On average, 6 to 12 months is the turn around time for a project.
Is my car "worth" restoring?
You are the best judge of this. Is this car important to you? Is this a car you have always dreamed of owning? Is this the car you would most like to have restored? Because beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you are the only one truly able to answer this.
Will I find this to be a good investment?
No. We restore automobiles, bankers handle investments. You should never restore an automobile for any reason other than the appreciation, beauty, and love of the vehicle.
Is my car "too far gone" to restore?
This does happen. We will advise you as to the "eligibility" of your car to become a good quality restoration. Remember, we want only to produce quality finished products. From time to time we do see a car that is not worth restoring.
What sort of experience do you have?
I have been restoring classic cars for 43 years now. Having started my career working on German and British exotics in 1968, I have seen myriad challenges and found solutions to all. My dad ran a Chevrolet dealership from 1958 on, so my shop was often home to 60's and 70's American muscle cars as well.
How do I monitor the project, especially if I am an out of town customer?
I post progress photos every week on the internet. You will be able to view your project every week from your home computer.
Where will you find and buy my parts?
With 43 years experience, I have a network of suppliers that have virtually never been anything but wonderful at supplying me with the parts I need. With the advent of the internet, worldwide parts procurement is now only a click away.
What about insurance?
We ask that you keep full comprehensive insurance on your car throughout the project. This is just good practice as well as common sense.
If I am an out of state customer, how do I move my car to (and from) you?
We use all the popular transportation companies. Passport Transport, Intercity Lines, Reliable Carriers, and Horseless Carriage are a few of our favorites. These carriers can pick up your vehicle virtually anywhere and deliver it safely to our shop.
