We started out as a single building restoration shop in 1988. At that time, we only worked on the owners, Forrest Wilkerson's, cars. During this start up time, Mr. Wilkerson was in need of a talented restorer. After talking with a number of his friends who were also car enthusiast, the name Butch Cook was very common. At this 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 of automobiles. After hearing should 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 Mr. Wilkerson turned Vintage Cars 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..
