40th Annual GCRA Custom Auto Show

We had a great time displaying three recent restorations at the 40th annual Gods Country Racing show in La Crosse, WI. Photographs from the event are available in our events gallery at this address. We displayed this 1961 Ranchero, this 1968 Olds 442, and this 1971 Dart. We were excited to take home multiple awards for all three of the cars including best interior, best engine, best paint, and class. Great event! We are looking forward to 2015!
