The Electric Summer

Posted by Pat Curtin on August 2022

Since our restoration shop opened in the early 1990s, the team has looked towards the past with our restoration business. We've worked to highlight, identify, and recreate the originality and feel of any classic, from Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadsters to our multiple Ferrari 250 PF Cabriolet in-house restorations. 

For many, the classic restorations make perfect sense. For others, originality doesn't carry the same provenance, especially when their classic goes through daily driver duties. Because of these various tastes, our team has begun to look toward the automotive future with electrification. We are not the only ones looking toward this electric future; join us as we highlight the Summer of Electrics and a few showcases we're excited to be involved with over the coming weeks.

The Monterey Match-up

Posted by Pat Curtin on August 2022

This week is the fantastic Monterey Car Week out in California. This legendary event has been going on for many years. Some of the standout events include the Gooding and Co. Auction, where we'll be keeping an eye out for a familiar Ferrari face, and they'll finish out the week at The Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance. Aside from the numerous legendary events, the entire city turns into a car haven throughout the week where you can see legendary cars you'd likely NEVER see on the streets.

If you haven't heard of Monterey Car Week, you're missing out on one of our absolute favorite annual shows. Our owners, Jack, Trina, and the family, have been going to Monterey Car Week since the late 90s and have had the chance to develop many great friendships over these 30 years. Today we'll cover three classics in the shop that would make perfect cruisers for the week out in Monterey.
