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. 

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 forAntique Cars and a Career to boot.
Today I still have a car I drove to High School (1941 Pontiac Tudor Sedan) and my only new car I ordered back in early 1970 (Lemans Sport Hardtop 350 / 4-speed /3.90 posi) andit ran quite well back in the day.
They are joined by others acquired along the way for the collection I have today.
View the whole site to see them all and the many other unique offerings.
I'm working on my own cars now after to many years of struggling to survive on customer work.
Today I'm considered the expert I once could not afford.
