If you are here, that may mean you are interested in finding your own antique vehicle. We want you to know this: You do not have to be a mechanic to act on your dream to restore a classic — We certainly are not experts, but we have learned what is needed most to overhaul a classic is determination and passion! Below we are sharing guides that document every detail on our efforts to restore our 1965 Clark Cortez motorhome. We hope this fuels you to act on your own dreams and leave us a comment to share your stories as we love connecting with like-minded people. Good luck on your journey, too — We cannot wait to hear about it!
