Dick Jr., is a second generation enthusiast with over 40 years experience going from a full rounded shop to an all American Muscle car restoration production in those forty years. This began with his purchase of a 1966 Olds 442 4-speed convertible. This purchase proved to be the best thing for Dick since his love for Muscle cars has spread to his passion for Oldsmobile 442’s.
Jeff Thornton,an expert in all areas of restoration is an overall auto body and custom paint specialist, and is a third generation enthusiast with over 25 years of experience. He was trained by his father and grandfather. He specializes in fabrication, body work and painting, but enjoys the full process of every restoration.
