SHOP TALK

After nearly two years of research and restoration work by teams at both Pollock Auto Restoration and Ragtops & Roadsters, we are very proud to report that Robin and Alan Anspaugh's 1960 Triumph Italia 200 GT Vignale #122, brought home an Amelia Award!  Congratulations go to both Alan and Robin and all of our crew that worked so hard to faithfully restore this special car to the finest standards which lead to an award winning debut!

In the Shop Now...

After several years of research and restoration work at Pollock Auto Restoration, look for this car soon at Ragtops & Roadsters where a fresh engine and gearbox await installation. After final sorting this 1962 Lotus Seven should be on the road this summer!

Inaugural Holy Land 1000

Bruce and Shelley Menkowitz ran their 1965 Austin Healey 3000 in the inaugural Holy Land 1000 in Israel last month. This is a car we restored several years ago and initial reports indicated that they had no problem other than typical British weather.
