My Turquoise 1956 Chevrolet pick
up wasnít going to just anyone to restore!
Iím the second owner for the past 10 years and the original
owner loved that truck so much that I had to honor him by allowing only
the most competent restorer the job.
Iíd waited 10 years and was prepared to wait another 15 until I
located the perfect person to competently do the job.
I chose Dan Miller for several
reasons, not the least of which is the fact that he restored two
extremely rare and expensive authentic movie cars for me and the results
were truly better than I had paid for or imagined!
I couldnít wait to see how the
new turquoise paint would turn out on the 56 Chevy, but Dan called me
and said, ďI donít want to paint it because itís too nice to cover
and I want the authentic original look of the truck to remain.Ē
In all, Danís integrity and honesty impressed me, as he turned
down a lot of money in work on the truck because authenticity was that
important to him.
I have done well for myself in
the business world and was prepared to spend whatever it might cost
because this old truck is so important to me.
When I envisioned restoring it, I never thought that it would be
a brilliant young man, rather a full team of ďaged experts.Ē
Retrospectively, I now realize that their years would have doubled the
price and not one of them would have loved and cared for this unique old
gem more than Dan Miller! He
is wise far beyond his years! He
was timely every step of the way including the delivery of the completed
truck back to Texas.
If you are serious about
restoring any make of car or truck, get bids from two or three
restoration shops, then give me a buzz (469-222-4272).
While I canít make the final decision for you, I can tell you
of the talent that Dan possesses. I
own many vintage cars and motorcycles and the three cars that Dan
restored for me remain my favorites.
Part of the reason is simply my passion for themÖbut the other
part was Danís passion!
