Sports & Classic car Restoration
The founding members of Scuderia110 is absolutely of the belief that all Sports & Classic cars should be consider “Rolling Works of Art” whether originally destined for immortality by sheer limited production numbers or proletarian by mass production (irony is many of these “lesser” cars have become nearly extinct by lack of their “value” making them even more “scarce” in the classic car market).
Our Classic & Sports cars are no longer a mere mode of transportation but rather “Rolling Works of Art”. As such they need to stir our souls the moment we lay our eyes on them first, from afar,then up close.There needs to be a sense of even greater reward and reassurance in knowing that the car will not disappoint. Once you open the door, the interior should reward your senses with that certain musk that every manufacturer has managed to keep it unique, and then be able to visualize the sympathetic patina or pleasant renewing of the interior. Finally comes the moment of “pièce de résistance” when you step on the clutch with that smooth firing of the engine on that proverbial first turn of the key. At this point you should marvel at the symphony of sounds from the engine and sweet rasps of the exhaust sound as you feel the mild rumble of the chassis while squeezing the engine a few gentle revs with your toes. By now, your head should swell up with joy and rapture followed by a certain sense of well being, hopefully, every time you get into your car. And most importantly, all these wonderful senses that arise from entering your car (which simply can not be duplicated virtually in front of a computer screen) can be achieved without resorting to bank account crushing “Concourse” level restoration.
We will work with each one of our clients to find out exactly what the end goal of their car restoration is. Only then, and once we have clearly come to a meeting of the minds in terms of the level and quality of restoration desired. And only then, would we offer to take on the project. We have various body and paint shops as well as upholsterers we work with to accomplish your desired goal of restoration.
We always remind our clients that the limit as to how much you can spend on the paint and interior is truly limitless… but just like wine, most people can’t discern between a nice $50 wine and $200 wine if this analogy works for you. What’s absolutely important is that all your senses can and should be rewarded, working within your budget. We have the Clinical Experience to guide you through this process!
Finally at Scuderia110, we put the greatest emphasis on how sublime and yet safe the driving experience should be of all the cars we service and restore at our shop. As you all know, with our Vintage & Sports cars, it is all about the sublime joy of experiencing the visceral dynamics of our machines as the engineers at the factory intended, certainly a unique aspect of the driving experience that modern cars have lost for the sake of incorporating more horsepower, bigger wheels and wider tires, and excessive computer input in lieu of our driving skills. At Scuderia110, we are all about providing that nostalgic or newly discovered vintage sports car driving experiences for the car enthusiasts of all ages, young and old. There are so many “garage queens” and “orphans” out there, and we would like to encourage the local enthusiasts to let us help bring their specialty cars to top running condition as factory intended. Allowing our team to restore your beloved Vintage & Classic Sports Car car so that you can proudly and safely enjoy driving it out on the open road is truly our goal and mission at Scuderia110.
