Why restore yourself?

Well, why?

The lower price category of Classic Cars
Who wants to acquire an Oldtimer / Classic Car of the lower price category should search the market thorougly because often it is more economic to buy a better exemplar than to buy a bad one that implicates a restoration in a reputable work shop.

But: If there are feelings attached, you can’t replace them with anything from the market!

The middle price category of Classic Cars
Also here an intensive glance on the market pays off – “Buy a good exemplar” is still less expensive than to buy a more economic one and to restore it in a reputable work shop.

But: You shouldn’t have too precise wishes of the exterior color or the interior design … or it can be more suitable to restore.

But: The state of the car body under the lacquer and spatula in many cases is a matter of luck. If there is no decent documentation, it isn’t clear what was worked professionally in the ground.

But: If there are feelings attached, you can’t replace them with anything from the market!

The upper price category of Classic Cars
From our point of view there is no other way than a restoration in a reputable, and in this car type specialized expert work shop. Here the purchase of an optically promising exemplar on the market often is the more risky alternative.

What can we do for you?
We are happy to accompany our clients on the search for the Classic Car of their choice. We can’t uncover all of the mistakes, but the most problematic points often stand out in the first test drive and the first inspection.
