Our Biography
How we got started

In the beginning

It all goes back to being born. Dad sold new Pontiacs at the time.
I got my first car at the age of 14 selling my go-cart for the cash required.

An early 1930
Model A Ford Tudor sedan. 

This car taught me many lessons in it's Restoration including Auto Body Repair & Painting.
This came from necessity unable to afford to have the experts do it.    

The opportunity to do everything on this car gave me a Love and Appreciation for  Antique Cars and a Career to boot.
