    Sorry but I am semi retired now and work in a shop at home. I try to stick with jobs I can get in and out in a couple days. I havn't worked on a Vette in 25 years, Why? because I don't have to. I learned years ago that the labor rate for body work that is set by Ins. co. is the same for a Corvette or Benz as a old lady's Toyota Corrola. Guess who is easier to please and more profitable? Your car should only be worked on by people familiar with them and a lot of experience on them or you will have problems down the rd. If I wanted paint work on a Vette on Cape Cod I would talk to Dick Garbutt On Thorton Dr. Hyannis first.

    What is your business name ? I have a 1975 Vette that needs a lot of work. Several years ago I had a new engine installed and had work done on the tranny as well. I only drove it in the summer to my workplace . Had a new paint job at the time. First it got keyed,then somebody poured. Milkshake on it which baked into the paint and then a guy in a big rush for a parking spot drove into it. At any rate I want to restore it as a driver. Not interested in a show car. It has been sitting in a barn since being hit and not started. What would I be looking at ballpark for body repair,paint,cleaning the fuel system,getting it running and more than likely needing an exhaust ? Tires too. Thanks.

    Her boat is a Bristol Skiff. They were made by Holby Marine in Bristol R.I. The rights and molds have gone to a builder in Maine
