This is my 1966 Chevrolet Caprice 2 Door Hardtop. This car is a 396 Bench Seat

4 Speed in the process of a full body-off frame restoration.


Major metal repair has been completed.....body has been acid dipped and E" Coated....and panel finishing has begun ! 

Chassis assembly has begun on the '66 Caprice 2 Door Hardtop !

And yes, sometimes I work on non-1966 cars ! This is a 1971 Opel GT in for a complete brake overhaul. New Rotors, Calipers, Brake Lines, Drums, Master Cylinder, etc. (Car completed in the fall of 2018)

Another car in process is the installation of a rebuilt engine into this 1967 Buick Skylark GS400 Convertible. All underhood parts are being refinished as well using the correct finishes and hardware ! 

1967 Buick Skylark GS400 Convertible completed in April of 2019 ! 

As for something different, I'm restoring a pair of Ice Cream bikes for a gentleman in Detroit. This is a unique set of tricycles ! 

Ice Cream Bikes completed June, 2019 !!

Started dis-assembly of a 1954 Chevrolet Bel-air Convertible. This vehicle is going to be resto-modded with an Art Morrison frame and other high tech goodies !

Recently completed (Dec. 2019) some electrical and interior restoration on a 1967 Lincoln Continental. These cars are a challenge to work on as electronics are complex and very hard to find parts for. If you are ever thinking of buying one of these automobiles, make sure you enter the transaction with your eyes wide open !
