When and how did your business get started?
My business started in 1974 specializing in interiors, convertible tops on antique, classic, collector and custom vehicles. I have been involved in the antique car hobby since 1965 and couldn't find anyone to do an interior of my 1938 Buick Century. I did my own interior and from there people asked me to do theirs and the rest is history.

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business?
I had been in Allentown for 12 years and had out grown my building, so I started looking around for a bigger building and found the building we are in now in 1986. I purchased it and did the necessary renovations to accommodate the business.

What is your business best known for?
What the business is best know for is doing interior restorations and complete body-off/frame-up restorations on antique, classic, collector and custom vehicles. We work with antique fabric, vinyl and leather. We make our own convertible tops on the older cars that use canvas materials for tops. We also perform work on the later model vehicles.

The oldest vehicle we have done the interior on is a 1905 Cadillac and we only had pictures to work from and the materials we used was horsehair, leather and it was diamond-tufted and the newest was a 2013 Audi. 

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?
We have had vehicles come to us from such places as Grand Junction, Colorado; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Bar Harbor, Florida to name a few along with the states up and down the East Coast.

I also do the interior and convertible top seminars at the Annual Meeting of the Antique Automobile Club of America in Philadelphia that is held every year. 

Does your business offer a special deals card or program?
For that special person, we have gift certificates that can be purchased in any amount.
