Classic car repairs

    Total nightmare, I own a 1970 Kharmann Ghia which 'was' in mint condition. I've had it garaged in the UK for the last year until I could build a garage here and finally had it shipped last week. Shippers have dinged it badly by the looks of it and are recommending their approved repairers.

    There's not a cats chance in hell that I'm using them & was hoping someone here could recommend someone.

    I'm in Cork, but I don't care where it is providing they can do a good job - it's repairable, but I want someone that knows what they are doing.

    Cheers

    As far as I know there are no people in Cork that repair old cars.

    I have my scimitar outside my house on axle stands waiting for a miracle to happen. Or winning big in lottery so I can take it abroad.

    No, because I live in Cork. And that's a problem. I wish I could just open the yellow pages but unfortunately it doesn't work this way I'm afraid.
