Besides his background in construction, Dan is also an automotive restoration specialist and all-around car nut. He enjoys restoring cars to showroom quality with a twist of custom modernization. He recently has restored a 1977 Jeep CJ7, a 1979 Jeep CJ7, a 1985 Corvette C4, and a 1988 Mustang 5.0. From an early age, Dan has had an inerrant ability to understand all things mechanical. This led him to have a lifelong passion for cars and trucks as well as for dirt bikes and motorcycles. He truly understands how things work, which allows Dan to rebuild and repair many different mechanical systems. Dan strongly believes in getting the job done right, and using the correct tool in that process helps ensure the job gets done quickly and accurately.
