"I just want to thank Gene and David for the care and workmanship that was given to my family on our '85 El Camino! It's the little things that count most. This car has been in our family for 25 years and will be handed down to my sons. Again, thanks to all who took part.

Thank you for you excellent service and work over the years. We can't imagine going anywhere else for auto body work!
