This shop specializes in restoring and maintaining British vehicles. They've helped bring my '77 MGB back to daily use condition. They cost more and take their time, but that's the nature of owning an old car that needs restoration. I've seen cars from Florida and Georgia in their garage - people actually ship their cars up to these guys for restoration.

I was very disappointed with most of the work they did on my TR6. They first did a partial restoration in 1998. The body work and paint was very nice but their rebuilding the engine was not. The car never ran well, always had over run (dieseling) and knocked no matter what fuel or additive I used. They were a 2 hour drive away so it wasn't easy for me to get back to them but any time they did try to adjust things the engine never ran any better. In the mid 2004, I was driving on a highway and the engine more or less gave out. It turns out that two pistons had holes in them. It turned out that the compression was way too high, something they overlooked when they first rebuilt the engine. They were willing to take responsibility for that and only charge me for a new head cover and labor for that which I would have had to pay for anyway if it had been done right the first time. But when the car was flatbedded down to them, mysteriously, the starter, master cylinder and alternator were all suddenly bad. For them to do a "free" rebuild on the engine ended up costing me around $2500. The car still didn't run well. Better than the first rebuild...no more after running or knocking. But the car wouldn't start after having been driven for more than 10 or 15 minutes (when the engine was nice and warm) and in general still had trouble starting it cold. I definitely wouldn't go back to them. Since they were so far away, I didn't have the patience for the 4 hour round trip so since 2004 have taken it to another mechanic. Now I have only put about 1500 miles on the car since 1998 (the first restoration) but do drive it about 4 times a month locally. I recently found another car restorations specialist near me who looked over the engine. He told me that the rebuild wasn't done well and that I really needed a new engine. That was just what I wanted to hear after spending about $24,000 on restoration and two engine rebuilds in 10 years.
