The shop

A rather charming set of photos from friend George over in Pennsylvania showing a local restoration shop, Pollack Automotive Restoration in Pottstown.It looks just how you imagine an old style restoration shop.It's in an old factory,or maybe it was once a mill,not in an industrial unit on some boring industrial estate.It looks as if it has a nice ambience of real craftsmanship.A long nose 911Targa is getting the treatment -they need to get rid of that Ferrari decal though.
It wasn't so long ago that early 911s with tin rot were just parts cars in the US but now prices have risen so much that restoration is feasible.Thank goodness.It's sad to think how many early cars which could have been saved have been broken up for parts in the last 20 years.
