TESTIMONIAL

Dear Bruce.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for anyone interested in a restoration of old Willy’s or GPW jeeps. Mine turned out great. I get so many compliments on it. People cannot believe they are seeing “the real thing”….

My complements to you and your team on the work and attention to detail. Thanks for the hard work.

Robert H. (Holly) Holder, PE
