    Welcome to VINTAGE SPORTSCAR RESTORATIONS

    It's been a long time coming for me. As of this month, doors have opened wide for you at my new show. Feel free to drop by and check out my latest restoration projects. Currently working on my own 1966 911. Also, a currently yellow and soon to be an original Silver 1967 911S. Also, a currently yellow and soon to be an orginal Lime Green 1974 Carrera Euro Targa. It's busy here but always time for kicking tires with the boys. Special thanks to you guys on this forum for all your contribution and support. Here is a few shots of the first car rolling out of my shop. A very special fully restored 1974 Carrera 911 in Glasurit Lime Green. Special thanks to John Hollaran for the complete restoration of the 2.8 power plant...the car pulls amazingly, Ben at Retro-Sport for engine install and tuning...guys does not stop til the engine is dialed perfectly. I have said before and will say again, Harvey Weidman's wheels make my restoration projects look complete. Owner of this beauty is Steve Silva. Thanks Steve for letting me be part of your dream come true....

    Congrats Freddie...looking very good.

    regards,
    al

    PS: I've had an identical pair of those cork colored sports seats in my 77S....they are a bit heavy, but very comfortable and supportive. One of my all time favorites....of course they look way better in this car than they did in my 250K miles rat.

    It has been quite a journey since I acquired this car back in Nov. 2010. To be honest, I'm kind of sad to have finally reached the finish line. As those of you who have been down this road of restoration, I'm sure you can attest to how rewarding the process can be. To be able to take a car back to a condition close to how it would have been when it rollled off the assembly line is just so satifying. The added benefit to me is when such process is undertaken all mysteries or uncertainties about the car and its history are revealed. With a complete top-to-bottom engine rebuild, bare-metal restoration and entire suspension rebuild, etc., you know with certainty what you have in a finished product. Freddie was instrumental in this process. His keen eye for detail instilled a sense of confidence that I knew would result in the project getting done right. Good luck with your new shop. I'm sure it will be a success!
