Journal Plus did a feature cover story on the shop!

We currently have several really cool projects going on in the shop right now. Two of our favorites are this Triumph Italia which just happens to be the fifth Italia we’ve had the pleasure of restoring, and a Jaguar XK140 Roadster that we’re currently performing a ground-up restoration on. Both are really fun projects that we certainly have our work cut out on, but we always welcome the challenge and reward that comes from bringing these pieces of automotive history back to life. The best place to follow our progress on current projects is on our blog. We’re proud to announce that our blog has been recognized as a top automotive blog by some of the leading blog reviewers, including Tech Rogers, Washos, and Feedspot.
