Brad has incredible skills. He knows every detail and aspect of Avantis and does his work like an artist. He knows which parts to use, where to obtain them, and if not available, no problem, he will make them. This Avanti, Bud’s 63, has incredible power and drives like new. I was blessed to find Brad who put this special car back on the road making new memories for the next generation. If you are like me with a passion for cars and Avanits, you should visit Brad’s shop. He is an amazing person and his projects worth seeing.
