The work we do in our 1500 sq. ft. shop is billed at a low $45 per hour plus parts. We work with outside contractors to get sheet metal fabrication, paintwork and upholstery done for you at attractive prices. We have free tow-in service and small-car trailering available for inoperable vehicles in our area.

Parts Locator Service

We know how to determine what parts you need using our automotive historical and technical library. Then we use our personal connections, car club connections and Internet networking to find and purchase the rare parts you need. We also showcase some rare parts that we sell on consignment.
