1958 Oldsmobile 88 Convertible & 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud

After a tour of the facility and absolutely sparkling reference checks, I sent my Olds to the wizards at Realistic Auto Restorations and the labor of love began. Within months the car was coming together. Their crew is truly professional. I have been asked if I would do it again. Yes, absolutely. Currently they are restoring our 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III. Extra big kudos to Realistic at 727 327-5162.

1967 Camaro Rally Sport

Fifteen years ago you restored my 1967 Camaro Rally Sport. I just want you to know the car is still going strong, still looks fantastic and still has people offering to buy it every time it's out. This is a testimonial to the quality of work performed by the craftsmen at your facility.

Over the last 15 or more years, I have had numerous cars either serviced, repaired or restored by Realistic's marvelous team of craftsmen and mechanics.

These cars have ranged from award winning Aston Martins, Bentleys and Rolls Royces to M.G's, Buicks and a Variety of Daily Drivers. I highly recommend without reservation their services to any enthusiast seeking to improve their automobile.

A Customer, and a Friend

We invite you to visit late John and Gail Handel's website "Years of Wheels". We've known John for a while, and sometime back, John called Jana looking for a 50's convertible. Jana remembered an ad for a '55 Pontiac Convertible that we had done extensive restoration work on years ago. It was advertised in Hemmings and was still in pristine condition, having been kept in climate controlled storage. John's purchase of the Pontiac he named "Chief" was the real beginning of his collection and the beginning of our friendship/business relationship. John was a great guy...particular...but that's exactly the kind of guy we like to work for. Take a look at his website, get John and Gail's slant on the hobby and take a look at some of the cars Realistic Auto Restorations did for him.
