You might notice a few advertisements in the sidebar. I’d like to personally explain the reason for creating a platform for them. The goal at is to be a purist resource for stock restorations. During my own 7 year restoration process, I’ve come across many fantastic quality vendors. I’m not talking about places that just sell parts, I’m talking about people who care about keeping these cars on the road and provide an invaluable service to this great hobby.

With that said, the only advertisers that will ever be showcased here are the folks with their hearts in the right place in terms of services or high quality parts. If you’re one of the mass mailed catalogs that claim “high quality”, we’re probably not good fit for each other. However, if you are one of the few good folks, please reach out to learn more about how we can build a lasting relationship. is gaining exposure daily. Between e-mail subscribers, Twitter, and RSS it reaches a growing audience. The content is niche and unique to folks who are doing stock restorations.
