We may be busy but anyone of our experienced staff members will gladly give you a tour of our restoration shop and museum. We like meeting new people who share our love for vintage automobiles.

We started out as a single building restoration shop in 1988. At that time, we were only working on the cars of one man, our owner Forrest Wilkerson. During this start up time, Mr. Wilkerson was in need of a talented restorer. After talking with a number of friends and car enthusiasts, the name Butch Cook kept coming up. At the time, Butch was running Cook's Unlimited Garage, a restoration and collision shop with his older brother. They started their business in 1983. They both shared a passion for cars. After hearing such high reviews about Butch's work Mr. Wilkerson decided he had to find him and see his work first hand. After meeting and speaking with Butch, Mr. Wilkerson hired him, from there Vintage Cars turned into a business. Butch has been our Shop Manager from the very beginning. Since then we have added four more buildings including a paint shop, upholstery building, a museum with a parts department, and a car building with a plastic media blast room. We have been restoring, rebuilding and creating classic automobiles ever since.

At Vintage Cars, we never sacrifice quality for quantity. Whether we are working on a partial restoration, complete restoration or just some repair work each job is equally important. We take the time to work with you and will discuss any problems or concerns we have about your vehicle. Being in the vintage car restoration business for over twenty-two years, we know what it takes to restore your classic automobile. Every nut and bolt will be replaced and no issue or problem will be overlooked. All the years we have been in the business our vintage car restorations are award winning... Judges and spectators alike praise them. Contact us to learn more!
