It has been a while since we have taken the time to feature a customer vehicle, and what a car to start back up with.

For the anonymity of the owner we will call him "James".

This 1968 Mustang is hands down one of the most complete and thorough examples of a full restoration that we have had the pleasure of working on. The photographs simply don't do the vehicle or the work involved justice. Early this spring James brought his Mustang in so we could get it ready for his summer driving. Every body panel is perfectly fit, every faster has been replaced, and every option including the power convertible top operates perfectly. The best thing about this restoration is that it was performed 10 years ago. To say the least it is holding up against the test of time. We were very proud to have James trust us with his pride and joy for several days while we completed a full service, tune up, and addressed a few other minor issues.

'This 08 Rolls Royce Phantom came in with a few electrical based issues and in need of service. We were able to trace several of the electronics issues down to a failing auxillary battery and initialization procedure, the electronic parking brake issue was due to a common failure of the EMF drive motor assembly, and the service consisted of a full vehicle inspection, rear brake replacement, oil and filter change, and reset of the condition based maintenance indicator. we received some interesting comments on this vehicle when it had a short visit with us. Some viewed the vehicle as the ultimate in luxury and craftsmanship while others viewed it as a pretentious display of financial achievement. What are your thoughts?

2017 Mclaren 570GT. 3.8l V8, a pair of turbo's, Cobalt Violet with Carbon accents, Stealth wheel option, Napa leather interior, and dash/ control panel completely animated. Extremely technologically advanced and for its price tag it should be. We are extremely fortunate to have customers who trust us with everything from their work trucks and family minivans to their specialty vintage or exotic investments!

RATS!!! Well, mice actually.

They used the engine bay of this Boxster as a Air BnB just long enough to chew through a few wires located under the intake manifold. Simple task. Remove intake, clean all debris, and repair the damage. All seems simple until you take into account that Porsche does not offer individual connectors, but they will sell you an entire engine harness with no problem... So we did what we do. measured, cross referenced, and located what we needed. We were able to get everything back in working order, check engine lamp out, and spared the customer the expense of an engine harness replacement.

"They don't make them like they used to..."

There are definitely two sides to this argument. On one hand todays cars are safer, more efficient, last longer, more dependable, and filled with creature comforts. Its great getting into our plush interiors where we are surrounded with air bags and technology that keep us safe and comfortable. The realm of superior noise control, cabin filters, and state of the art stereo's being standard do a great job of separating us from the rest of the world while we enjoy our journey. Todays vehicles require tons of training, special tools, and sometimes expensive parts to keep them running well. The nice thing is they start right up even in extreme temperatures and go the first 100k with very little other than wear items and oil changes.

On the other hand vintage rides had style for days, exhaust notes that make their optional radios seem unnecessary, and never fail at putting a smile on someones face. The electronics were minimal (along with the safety equipment), the engine management was mostly mechanical, and parts were relatively inexpensive. The thrill and excitement of driving one of these finely aged vehicles is almost unexplainable. It's like taking a step back in time, when everyone wasn't in such a hurry and the little things meant more. Everyone has a favorite, memories made in one, or dreams of one. Older cars were more simplistic but required frequent tune ups, had finicky fuel and ignition systems, and engine rebuilds/ valve jobs were not uncommon around 30-40,000 miles.

You can argue either way. I believe the best solution is to own one of each!

FJ Cruiser! Came in for service and a few odds and ends. Mark's FJ caught our attention with its perfect color combo and every option available. With 2014 being the last year of sale stateside Toyota filled the interior with creature comforts formerly unavailable in such capable multipurpose vehicles.

Bang for the buck, smiles per dollar, memories per mile.... Bob is winning in all categories with his '84 Vette! I stumbled across this photo taken of his car at the shop and it got me thinking about his killer investment. We had a short discussion when he picked his car up after a set of tires and some routine maintenance and it brought to light the fact that he has owned this car for over 20 years! Figuring in purchase price, maintenance, and insurance we did the math and this car has an average yearly cost of roughly $600 per year of bobs ownership! Thats insanely inexpensive. Think about the memories he has made, the car shows he has enjoyed, the mind clearing drives he has taken, and the relaxation this car has brought him! This is proof that you don't have to spend big money to have big fun. Vehicles play drastically different roles in everyones life. Some are used for work, some are just transportation, some are for enjoyment, and some are for investment. I am sure that Bobs Vette has served him in all these ways plus more.

These guys are bulldogs when it comes to fixing cars. I had a truck that I found out from the previous owner that the garage they went to refused to change the plugs out. Ken did it even though he said it almost broke on 2 plugs. Didn't complain and got the job done. They work on ALL types of cars from foreign to exotic and also work on performance issues. This is one shop I am not afraid to take my cars because they do the job right and they price things very fairly. They won't try and sell you something unless you need it.
Great work and less than the estimate.
