1965 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 – Car came to us with many modifications made at other shops and unable to run or idle. Got the car running very nicely, only to be involved in a traffic incident. We did the collision repairs to include fixing prior poorly executed work.

1971 Alfa Romeo Spider – Our friend Dave bought this car and fell in love with it immediately.  It needed all of the usual Alfa stuff, engine mounts, suspension rubber front and rear, land a bunch of little tweaks and adjustments. Dave helped with some of the dirty work and continues to refine this really nice car.

1966 AH 3000 BJ8 – This car was bought from a long time AHCA member and had been taken care of. We did a thorough inspection and found some suspension and mechanical issues that would make the car a bit more reliable. Recent tires, wheels and hub work has been done, along with a few leak fixes. Pretty car.

1956 AH Factory 100M – A solid and well maintained factory 100M, owned by our friend Ron who owns the pretty blue Bugeye shown on this page. Interestingly we had two Factory 100Ms in the shop at the same time.

1961 AH 3000 BN7 – This car was bought well in Scottsdale. Very solid workmanship on the paint and interior, one of the best Healey’s I saw out there that year. After it came home the owner had us go through the car. It looked like the last 10% of the mechanical work was rushed. We squared it away and the car now looks, runs and drives great!
