Another Grand Sport Coming To Life

Posted on: September 18th, 2018 by Tricia Krause

Our paint booth has been occupied a lot lately.  We have had so many restoration jobs and Grand Sport builds happening that our paint booth always has something in it anymore!!  Our GS customer decided to go outside the traditional box by choosing this color scheme and boy, did it ever turn out nice!!  It’s always exciting  to watch our Grand Sport builds come to life!

Saturday Morning Car Club Tours

Posted on: April 21st, 2018 by Tricia Krause

Do you belong to a car club?  Did you know we host private shop tours for car c lubs?  (Any kind of car club; not just Corvette clubs)  It’s our pleasure to open our shop up, tell you our story and let you see first hand the quality of work we do.  It always amazes us to hear people say “I didn’t know you did that” or “I wish I would have known about you sooner” when we have people tour our facility for the first time.  We know we say it all the time but we truly are your “One Stop Restoration Shop”.  If you belong to a car club and would like to schedule a private tour of our facility for your club members please feel free to call Tricia at (330) 296-1963 to get on the schedule.  Today we were honored to have the Mahoning Valley Corvette Club with us for a private tour this morning!  We appreciate everything their club does for us.  They take such good care of us at the Salem Super Cruise.  Save the date of June 7, 8,9,10, 2018.  This is a huge show you won’t want to miss!

2018 Piston Powered Auto Rama

Posted on: March 22nd, 2018 by Tricia Krause

The Cleveland Piston Powered Auto Rama was very good to many of our customers on both the Mongoose side of the business and the Portage Trim side of the business!!  There were a lot of First Place smiling faces among our customers who participated in the show over the weekend!!  Congratulations to our valued customers who have also become dear friends of ours over the years.  Derald & Betty bought their 1963 Grand Sport from us in 2013.   This car was one of the best things that ever happened to them.  They drive their GS all summer long and have so much fun going from car shows to the race track. Everywhere they go they are turn heads with their Blue #2!  We are so happy to see them get so much enjoyment out of their Grand Sport.  Congratulations on bringing home another First Place award!!
