TESTIMONIALS

  • I just wish to thank you and your employees for all you have done over the years.  It began when you were still using Willardville Restorations with a 1932 Nash 980 sedan. Among other cars you completely restored my 1941 Oldsmobile woody, my 1948 Nash Cabriolet, my 1949 Packard convertible, and of course my 1949 Nash School bus, which received national recognition in the US news circuit.Tom H.
