Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – August 5, 2010 -To help visitors understand what it takes to prepare a classic automobile for competition, in 2009 the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance launched Restoration Alley, where craftsmen demonstrated the art of restoration. Its popularity is bringing the Alley back to the 2010 Concours, to be held again at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA on September 19, according to Concours Chairman Peter Kunoth. Among the experts at the 2010 Concours will be:
Steve Tillack’s Fast Cars Ltd. of Redondo Beach, which specializes in restoring, detailing, and preparing performance, classic and race cars, focusing on Ferraris. Visitors will witness cars in the beginning, middle and end of the restorative process. In addition Steve will showcase two state of the art race simulators in his exhibit.
Edelbrock Corporation, which is one of America’s premier designers, manufacturers and distributors of performance replacement parts. Vic and Christie Edelbrock will sign autographs, give hats, posters and coloring books to kids, and display more than 500 parts, including their latest E-Force supercharger system for the 2005-09 Ford Mustangs.
The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo, which has restored dozens of classic cars for their innovative facility near LAX. In Restoration Alley, famed restorer Gene O’Hara will show how he is painstakingly restoring the woodwork on a 1948 Packard “Woody” that sat in a leaky garage for more than 40 years.
Lorenzo Pearson’s West Coast Metric Inc. of Harbor City, which makes parts and accessories for enthusiasts who want to restore their Volkswagen Bug, Bus, Ghia, Thing, Type 3, Vanagon, Cabriolet or New Beetle. They also make parts for Porsches. At the PV Concours they will show their unique half and half Beetle – a car with literally 50 percent restored to perfection – and 50 percent in the poor condition in which they found it.
