I have a 68 California Special that I want to get restored. Does anyone recommend a restoration site in the area or close to it? Thanks for the help.

Asking for a recommendation for a restoration shop is a tough question, almost like asking for a recommendation on a good wife, because everybody has their own opinions and standards as to what is quality and what is garbage (I'm referring to cars now, not women). One guy's hero is another's zero, and alot also rides on the projected budget. The only real way to come up with a shop is to go to as many car shows as possible. Find cars that you would be proud to own yourself, and start asking the owners questions. Many may have done it themselves, but many others will have been done at a shop. Then you can ask questions about cost, how long did it take, did they allow you to provide your own parts or try to make a few bucks on the parts as well, and so on.

What Rick said is 100% true!

I have a friend that keeps going to this guy we've known for 10 years. I had him touch up the hood of an '86 F-150 I had, he did a crappy job, spects of dirt in the paint, overspray, and HE PAINTED MY WIPER ARM POSTS!!! I made him strip the paint off the posts, but you can't get that porious sparkle back, and they didn't look right painted gray.

Yet my friend brought his car back to this guy again BECAUSE HE'S CHEAP!

Now he's complaining about the job, and I'm telling him "What did you expect? You got the job you paid for!"

It's sure doesn't make me feel good, since I'm going to have to pick somebody soon myself...

I live in the West Palm Beach, Florida area and one I might suggest would be SCRANTONS CLASSIS MUSTANGS. They do complete restorations. Picked up one of their cards at a car show and they had a Mustang there they restored and it looked really nice. I talked to the guy and they have been in business for many years. Their names are Bob & Todd. Phone: 772-793-6900

If it is Atlanta, two good choices are, Gordon's classics and Lambchops, both have websites advertised in Mustang Times and on the MCA website, I have seen work from both and have been to Gordon's shop, top quality work.Gordon's shop is incredible, and very clean and organized.
