    Looking for a reputable pro-touring builder in NY (close to NYC), CT, NJ or PA

    Hi all,

    Greetings from Hong Kong. I have a 67 Firebird Convertible with a RHD conversion (purchased from Australia). I am thinking of shipping the car back to the US and have a proper pro-touring restoration performed on the car. As my business takes me to NYC often, I'm looking for a reputable and quality builder close enough to NYC that I can rent a car and visit throughout the build process.

    Thanks in advance for any help offered! Happy motoring...

    This shop has been around a long time and is about an hour out of NYC on I-95 in CT. Arrange a visit to the shop next time you're in NYC. I've had work done by them in the past and seen other work they've done. http://automotiverestorations.com/
