I have been around the antique and classic car field my entire life- maintaining my father's classic car collection and attending classic car shows in the Connecticut area since I was old enough to walk. When I was 16, my father and I rebuilt a 1911 Model T Speedster, which happened to be the car I learned to drive on. It is still my favorite car to date!
From 2004-2008, I attended McPherson College, the only accredited college with a four year degree in Automotive Restoration. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Automotive Restoration Business Management from McPherson. Owning a Model A and a Model T helped further fueled my passion for early Ford and other prewar vehicles.
During college, I interned at "Connecticut Antique Engine Restoration" and learned the finer details of rebuilding Model T and Model A engines. In 2016, after honing my skills and knowledge at other restoration shops in VT and CT, I opened "Pat's Restoration Services, LLC"- where I offer complete Model T and Model A engine restoration and rebuilding, using original KRW tools and original Ford specification Babbitt.
