Awards and Events

The phrase "award winning" is something serious to consider when choosing a shop. Awards, recognition and a high-quality restoration have been proven to add significant value to your car. Our awards include multiple Best in Show, First in Class and Best Restoration.

We would like to thank all our clients for bringing us such amazing cars to restore, for entering the cars in such wonderful events and for being nearly as happy as we are when we win.

Winning First in Class at Pebble Beach is pretty amazing - even Mark is happy!

Pinehurst Concours - 289 Cobra

All of our CONGRATULATIONS to Larry on winning not only First in Class but the prestigious Chairman's Trophy at the Pinehurst Concours!!! LOVE those American Racing Wheels, what a great choice. Below, photos are winning at Pinehurst, first test drive and delivery day.

Gunga Din

There is very likely not a machine that has done more winning on this planet than Gunga Din. Gunga is the only Vincent factory racing motorcycle and it was raced in dozens if not hundreds of races all over Europe. The words Black Lighting Prototype are romantic, exciting and suit Gunga perfectly.

Robert Smith wrote a lovely piece that tells the story of this amazing bike:

We are immensely proud that Gunga Din was the first motorcycle invited to Pebble Beach in history. We tied for first place and were awarded second. It was a great honor to restore this priceless piece of British racing motorsports history. All our thanks to the owner, his family and the Vincent community - Somer and Big Sid, we could not have done it without you. Even today Gunga just keeps winning -  after Pebble, it has won First in Class at Amelia Island and Best in Show at Vincent Nationals to name a just few.

1957 Ferrari Double-Bubble Zagato TDF


1957 250GT TDF Zagato

"The Zagato" as we call her, was restored by Motion Products and then, because the owner lives locally, it was given over to our care. A few years later we repainted, redetailed and met with great success at Pebble but I am not sure how much we really had to do with it. It is easily one of the most beautiful Ferrari's ever made. Breathtaking is not too strong a word.

Ferrari Nationals and Pebble Beach - Prince Bernard Ferrari 250 Speciale

This very special 250GT was special ordered by HRH Prince Bernard of Holland, a long time friend of Enzo Ferrari. The number plate 13 was the Prince's favorite number and he always had something green on his Ferrari's (in this car, the paint - that is Essex Green, gorgeous, no?).

It won...FIRST IN CLASS at Pebble and BEST IN SHOW at Ferrari Nationals.

I am remiss, I can't recall what giant award it won at Cavallino. Platinum and I think...Best Restoration. Hm. Your blogger will have to do some research and update later.

Boston Cup - Best In Show!!

In 2012 The Boston Cup was a brand new show held on Boston Common.  At this show the other entrants vote for their favorite car. To our total amazement it was us - Best In Show!! This car went on to more wins at St. John's and Amelia Island.

This is a Porsche factory team 906 that ran the 1966 Le Mans with Peter Gregg and Sten Axelsson driving. It really doesn't get much cooler than that, does it?
