Five case studies of the kind of projects that are our bread and butter. Please call us about your project.


Automotive Restorations was founded in 1978 to employ its principals in the care and feeding of all varieties of fine, not to mention interesting, machinery. Too say that passion fueled our founding is an understatement as over 30 years of service to the collector community, countless awards and fact that two of the three original principals are still actively and passionately involved attest. Founders Kent Bain and Charlie Webb have seen a relatively small niche hobby become far more and we at Automotive Restorations Inc. and Vintage Racing Services are all pleased to have contributed to “the hobby” and our clients' enjoyment.

The same interest and passion that created the company keeps us motivated and involved today. We have grown to encompass a far broader range of services with a staff of over 40 highly skilled, enthusiastic and motivated craftsmen. Focusing all our abilities on our customers' needs has allowed us to understand the factors behind the dramatic expansion in the collector car arena. We realize that we serve the art, appreciation and entertainment end of the transportation spectrum. While it is true that the vehicles we restore and service will get you from here to there, it’s the elegance, joy, fun and beauty therein that has fueled dynamic growth. Automobiles as art and as entertainment about covers it. Be it the afternoon one of our customers spends tidying up and appreciating his recently restored classic, a road rally through some exotic countryside, the elegance and beauty of that concours exhibit lawn, savoring a cruise night, a vintage race weekend or simply a crisp open air ride one fine fall evening, we understand and we are here to make it all it can be. Restore and augment the beauty, always think safety, get that car as it should be, where it should be, on time and trouble free. Make it fun, make it safe, make it beautiful and make it easy. Our mission is to facilitate and share all the value, joy, beauty and excitement collectable vehicles and the full range of related activities can offer.

Be it a simple service, some expert advice, a complete restoration, acquisition assistance, or getting you to and from that event with ease, please do call.  We are confident that you will be glad you did.
